Setting a distribution strategy, finding the right partners, and getting reseller arrangements set up shouldn’t be this hard. But it remains one of the biggest challenges facing tour and attraction operators worldwide. 

We held our Arival October Insider Pro Meetup for members and it was clear just how many questions and challenges even very sophisticated, savvy industry professionals have to contend with when it comes to distribution. 

So we have prepared this short Arival Guide to the Distribution Landscape for Tours, Activities & Attractions. This short Arival Guide provides an up-to-date overview of the distribution landscape with clear, easy definitions for each distribution channel. The chart below shows all of the major components of the distribution landscape, and the full guide walks through each of these companies with clear explanations.
