Having so many people from different segments of our sector in the same place at the same time, in an atmosphere conducive to sharing, supporting and learning from each other, was a very positive and beneficial experience.

Arival provided a great opportunity to hear about what is going on in the industry and get inspiration from companies who have achieved the things we are aiming for in the future!

Expique
Arival is THE conference if you're in the experience or activity business. I had no idea what to expect, but as soon as I arrived I felt at home. It's been a few months since I've been back and I'm still going through my notes and exacting plans that were realized and hatched at the conference. There are great, practical, useful workshops that will have your head swimming with new ideas and then the people that you meet! I met so many people and got all of their advice and knowledge too. I think the Arival Conference will stay with you long after you have left it.

Bravo Arival! Finally an industry conference dedicated specifically to the needs and wants of the tours and activities sector! The content was so relevant and the cost of the conference was accessible enough to allow a last minute add on. Can’t wait for next year’s conference!

The Arival team is certainly delivering on their intention of being the leading event for the Tours and Activities industry. The attendees and presenters all add a lot of value and make the ticket price well worth it. The facilitation was masterful and insightful; the intelligence and viewpoints posted by Doug and Bruce during the sessions and keynotes prove the team knows this space and are focused on providing not just the popular views or any desired messaging from the major sponsors. Well worth the cost and effort to attend. It is the only annual conference we now include in our budget to attend year or year.
