About ATIA

 

Tourism marketing funding was a significant focus for the ATIA Board the past two years. Now, with the hopeful commitment from the State of Alaska to allocate the Vehicle Rental Tax to statewide destination marketing, we will be able to focus more of our energy on other important issues related to our industry.

The dynamic changes at ATIA over the past few years have brought new life to the association through increased focus on member voices and enhanced benefits. With the ongoing support of ATIA members and partners, today the association is the leading nonprofit trade organization for the state's tourism industry. We are reaching beyond initial goals- to ensure the continued success, quality and integrity of the travel industry in Alaska.
