About Us

Arival’s mission is to establish “tours and activities” as the major sector of the global travel, tourism and hospitality industry that it deserves to be.

Arival is a new conference specifically designed for day-tour and attraction operators, and all suppliers and sellers of activities. Arival provides practical education and inspiration on marketing, technology, online selling and creating great guest experiences.

Arival was founded by three experienced leaders in travel and tourism with a passion for the best part of travel (the stuff that happens when you get there). Learn more about us here.

Arival is the event that advances the business of in-destination experiences

Why Arival?

1. The global marketplace for in-destination experiences is big:  more than $130 billion in traveler spend worldwide.That is more than twice the size of car rental and cruise – combined.

2. This sector is going through extraordinary change.Explosive growth in software innovation is bringing affordable, modern reservations and distribution tech to tens of thousands of suppliers.

3. Mobile is transforming how travelers make decisions about the things they do when they get there. The old days and old ways of ticket offices, wholesalers, and brochures by the concierge desk just don’t cut it.

4. There is no event or forum that serves the needs of the hundreds of thousands of small businesses and organizations that serve the traveler in-destination – until now. Attend Arival and get inspired to advance your business with awesome education on marketing, technology, online selling, and what it takes to win over today’s modern traveler.

It’s high time in-destination experiences got its own event.

There are more than enough travel industry conferences, media outlets and trade organizations. Yet the global travel, tourism and hospitality industry has all but ignored tours, activities, events and attractions. Ironically, it is these experiences which drive travel in the first place. Sightseeing tours, attractions, activities – these are not airlines or hotels. They face very distinct challenges to marketing, distribution, technology, fulfillment, and more.

It’s high time travel’s third largest and most important sector – in-destination experiences – got its own event. An event that assembles its leaders, serves its needs and celebrates its impact.

Now it does.
