The end of 2021 has been full of events sponsored by TripShock, including the Watersport Forum and Parasail Operators Symposium. If you’ve been to this type of events before, you surely know that not only are they so much fun to attend, but also very informative and can help make sure you stay up-to-date on the latest trends in the travel industry. While the aforementioned events were highly focused on watersport business growth, Arival 360 is suitable for tour operators running attraction businesses of all types.

Meet the Event Organizer
Arival 360 is hosted by Arival – an organization with Insights, Community, Connections, and Events for creators and sellers of tours, activities, attractions, and experiences. Arival is not only an excellent resource for watersport operators and attraction business owners, we also consider them friends. Douglas Quinby, Arival CEO, has recently joined our Watersport Forum, where he shared important industry insights and data collected from over 50 watersports operators across the US and compared it to data from the broader tour industry. Arival 360 will feature many other speakers, including Kevin O’Neil from the Awkward Watersport Guys Podcast.
