Are you coming to the Adventure Travel World Summit?

The Adventure Travel World Summit is on October 19-22, 2009 in historic Quebec City. I’ll be attending this year as a speaker focusing on Social media and distribution systems for the adventure segment. I am really excited about being part of the conference this year because it is really well executed and, from what I have heard, one of the best conferences to attend if you are an adventure travel operator. Although I am not an adventure tour operator, Rezgo is certainly relevant for the audience and the Social media is, as most of you know, one of my passions.

If you are an adventure tour operator, you should definitely consider attending the summit. You can find out more about the Adventure Travel World Summit at their website http://www.adventuretravelworldsummit.com.There is a new addition to this year’s program that is also very relevant; a partnership with the OpenTravel Alliance. You can read the press release titled “OpenTravel Board Member Stephen Joyce to Speak at Adventure Travel World Summit” on the OpenTravel website

If you are attending and would like to participate in my sessions, here is my schedule for the summit:

I am going to have to stock up on the throat lozenges. As you can see, I’m speaking in ten sessions over three days. Make sure to connect with me on the Summit Connections website or tweet me @stephenjoyce.

Look for my tweets and updates using the hashtag #atws2010. I’m sure there will be lots of useful tweet-bites for those of you who cannot attend the summit.
