I just returned from the 3rd Adventure Travel World Summit in Whistler, organized by the Adventure Travel Trade Association. A great conference, attended by some amazing individuals from the adventure travel industry. Keynote speeches by the founder of Earthwatch, the president of Virgin America (keep an eye on them – they promise to bring some amazing service to the north American skies!) were among the highlights.
Latin American countries had a strong showing. Especially Ecuador and Brazil put on great shows. I will have to add these to my (long) list of places to go.
