2016 Alaska Tourism Shark Tank


The Alaska Travel Industry Association (ATIA) is very excited to announce the first ever “ATIA Tourism Shark Tank”! ATIA members will have the opportunity to present new tourism business products or ideas to ATIA’s own Alaska “Sharks” during Thursday’s plenary session at the 2016 ATIA Annual Convention & Trade Show. Winners could snag up to $5,000 in a cash prize to help turn their tourism business ideas into reality!

Interested applicants must be current ATIA members in good standing and complete and submit this application by SEPTEMBER 9, 2016 to Sarah Leonard. Please include “Alaska Shark Tank” in the email subject line.

Applications will be reviewed by an internal ATIA team. Applicants selected must be prepared to present their business idea and/or product in person to the ATIA Sharks during the ATIA convention luncheon on Thursday, October 6, 2016. The Alaska Tourism Sharks will provide valuable feedback and guidance on business ideas and decide at the convention who the prize winners will be!
