Testimonials

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.

Alex Grant

Travel Curious
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
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.

Bob Hofmann

Broadway Inbound
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
Informative and fun event, uniquely designed for those of us in the attractions & tours sector. I’ll be at Arival 2019 in Orlando, and I’ll bring colleagues too!

Aimie Johnson

The Florida Aquarium
I learned that tour suppliers need to market themselves as widely as possible on as many different platforms as they can. The results of visiting Arival have been overwhelmingly positive. I met with so many like minded people, I had an amazing time at Arival.

Vito Pagano

GettinLocal
We were at ARIVAL in Vegas 2017, disoriented, scared, and 100% blind on how, where, and when to take the next steps to improve our business. We came back strong, educated, and optimistic. We met you! You treated us as a large company! We felt important! Repeated Vegas 2018, couldn’t make it to Orlando, but I will sell my dog to see you in Phoenix!! A huge challenge ahead… our whole life is on the line here… but because of YOU… we are not afraid of the future.
