There is no shortage of travel industry media, content, and conferences. But if you operate in travel’s third-largest sector – the in-destination industry – you’re stuck with newsletters and outlets that mostly cover accommodation, transportation, and destinations. At Arival we are building a platform dedicated to you: creators and sellers of Tours, Activities, Attractions & Events.

We are thrilled to welcome Peter Gietl to the team. Peter is based in Denver, Colorado, and brings more than a decade of writing and journalism experience to the team. He’ll be devoted to covering the trends and delivering the insights that matter most to you. He’s already been digging in deep, including this important story on TripAdvisor we published in October.

We all belong to the Best Part of Travel, and there are so many incredible stories yet to be told.  We can’t wait to tell them. If you have a story to tell or feedback, reach out to Peter at He’s anxious to hear from you and talk to you (but from time to time his dog Hemingway likes to chime in on a call).

Meet the Arival team here.
