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
Thank you, Arival, and congratulations on a well-organized virtual conference. The sessions were informative, inspiring, and reassuring as we plan for 2021.

Yuien Chin

Harlem One Stop
I was pleasantly surprised by how affordable, it was. I enjoy the lack of TOURIST BOARDS and waste talks about politics. The consumer data was precious. Subjects were highly relevant to me. I felt it was a cost efficient and productive use of my time away from the office.

Arival in Berlin exceeded my expectations. The atmosphere on site was amazing. The topics for the sessions and workshops covered current challenges and solution approaches in the industry and brought up great in-depth discussions.

I could tell that there was real excitement among all of the participants, and I am looking forward to watching so many other sessions on-demand that I couldn't get to in person. Cheers!

Arival is definitely the rise of a Sleeping Giant, the Activities and Tours Industry. Great opportunity lo learn from the best in the area.

Luiz Mendez

Atlantis Submarine Cozumel
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.

Ashley Steyaert

One Ocean Diving
I have attended all but one of the Arival events since they started. They are without a doubt the best event for tour and activity operators to attend. Huge learning opportunities and networking are second to none.
