2021 ATIA Annual Industry Convention & Trade Show Postponed

Message from the President:

The ATIA Board of Directors and team have been, like many of you, monitoring the situation around rising cases of the coronavirus in our communities. Since the very beginning of the COVID19 pandemic, ATIA has made the health and safety of our teams, members, partners, and communities a priority. At the recent ATIA Board of Directors’ meeting, ATIA leaders asked for the team to postpone the annual ATIA convention and trade show that was being planned for this October in Anchorage. At the same time, we want to hear from you. Please take a moment to share your thoughts about potential timing and format for ATIA’s industry convention and trade show by completing this short survey by Friday, September 10, 2021.

For members that have already registered for ATIA’s annual industry convention and trade show, including the summit, thank you! We ask that you wait before contacting the ATIA team about refunds and changes until we can gather feedback from you and share this with the ATIA Board of Directors in mid-September. We will work with you to adjust registration fees at that time.

We recognize we are all living in challenging times and are seeing information changing daily related to vaccines and COVID19. We also respect and honor that ATIA’s membership is diverse, and our members bring to the Association varying thoughts and differing backgrounds. We believe it is what makes ATIA strong. We ask for your understanding and support as we gather your feedback through this short survey by Friday, September 10, about next steps for the convention and trade show.

For any questions or more information, please contact: sleonard@alaskatia.org.

Thank you,

Sarah Leonard
President & CEO
Alaska Travel Industry Association
