The conference for the Best Part of Travel — tours, activities, attractions and experiences — is now set for San Diego, California, on February 1–4, 2022. Arival 360 San Diego will take place at the beautiful Town & Country Resort, not far from the city’s world-class attractions and long stretches of beach.

Safety First and Foremost

Our first priority is the safety of our attendees and staff, so we are taking a number of measures to conduct an amazing event amid the safest possible conditions. We will, among many other things, require proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test, hold many functions outside, design the indoor space for great networking AND social distancing, and likely require that masks be worn indoors. You can see our full health and safety policy here

Our event team undertook an extensive research process to evaluate potential destinations and venues for our rescheduled conference. They developed an in-depth matrix of criteria to assess both safety measures as well as the conference experience. Our event planner, Heather Torrey, has written this great explainer of how they went about that process

(By the way, did you know that small operators who attend Arival 360 San Diego and sign up for our Insider Pro Access membership actually save money. The Insider Pro Access 20% discount for the conference is greater than the cost of annual Insiders Pro Access membership.)
