Price:  $7,500 for 1 Demo Lab, $12,500 for 2 Demo Labs
Available: 25 21 available


Arival’s mission is to demystify technology and distribution and empower tour, activity and attraction operators to capitalize on all of the new technology and innovation serving the tours sector. Demo Labs are a key element of Arival Events, enabling operators to to get an extended, hands-on feel for what it might be like to use a new technology for their business, work with new distributors or discover new marketing ideas. This is where you come in. Create a compelling, practical, hands-on demonstration (not a sales pitch! no slides with bullets listing features) that will give a real feel for attendees of what it’s like to use your products and services. The Arival Demo Labs take place in a workshop room that accommodates 100+ people, but your attendance will depend on how much interest there is in your topic(s) and your efforts to recruit attendees. They are 30 minutes long, with a dedicated Internet connection, projector and screen. Arival sends out pre-registration requests for each Lab, and you can invite specific prospects. The Arival content team works with you to ensure your demo lab is awesome, highlights your best and gives attendees a good feel for what your company offers.
