Testimonials

I have enjoyed several Arival conferences, it is great to go somewhere that speaks directly to the attractions industry and not get overwhelmed by info tailored to air travel and/or hotels. We are trying hard to overcome making emotional decisions at this time and I have always found quality data through Arival. This connection is vital to me.

Deb Rodak

Chicago Architecture Center
An incredible atmosphere, you can breathe optimism and you leave with a very reinforced feeling that it is worth what we do, that in the end it is to make people happy with things to do and remember a destination.

Isaac Paton Nicolau

Guias.travel
I’ve found Arival to be very valuable over the past few years and most of our largest distribution partners participate.  As we emerge out of this global shut down much of our focus will be on expanding what we do with our partners digitally, particularly deeper management of content on these sites.  I’m also appreciative of the research.

Broadway Inbound
I heard about Arival from my Viator account manager. My first Arival event was in WTM in 2019. I went home and told our business owner that I want to get rid of WTMs and ITBs and switch to an annual Arival event.

Eszter Banki

Absolute Tours
I got to know Arival sometime last year, during the lockdown and found out that it is very inspiring for the industry players. We are a small family-run tour operator and I´ve attended some spectacular webinars events. Did not want to miss the chance of participating in Arival Insider to learn more about the industry and honestly to do some networking with colleagues from all over the world.

Luis Guerreiro

LG Porto Tours
I loved the app, and the fact that the sessions did not feel like free advertising opportunities for the speakers.

Carole Favre

The Fabulous Tourism Academy
Well done Arival team! You can be proud of a virtual event that really clicked with the audience. Great discussions, lots of interaction, and even a live game show as the grand finale 😀

Withlocals
Arival has quickly established itself as the knowledge and debate centrifuge of the tours, activities, and attractions community. What comes out of Arival is clear, thoughtful and practical.

Wendy Morrill

WYSE Travel Confederation
Best conference for our sector. It's not only the only place to meet the decision-makers it is also great fun too. Our business has changed for the better due to the connections we met there.
