Go International

Third Annual Go International

Monday, January 28 – Tuesday, January 29, 2019
Albuquerque, New Mexico

Join AIANTA at the Third Annual Go International training.

Part of AIANTA’s International Outreach program, this two-day seminar is designed to prepare tribes and native-owned businesses for the international marketplace. By attending Go International, tribal enterprises will learn the ins and outs of attending international trade shows such as Showcase USA-Italy, ITB Berlin, World Travel Market in London and IPW.

Attending these trade shows can help attract visitors from Germany, Italy and the UK, all of which are among the highest-spending travelers in the world.

Go International provides tailored, focused training on the international market through presentations by experts in the field. It also provides a hands-on forum where participants can identify their tourism product(s) for pricing, packaging and selling to overseas markets, and the training is ideal for newly developed tourism businesses as well as tribes and businesses with established products.

Tourism is an economic driver in Indian Country, providing a bright future for tribes committed to creating strong cultural tourism programs. Just starting to benefit from international visitors to the United States, Indian Country has seen overseas visitors grow from 693,000 in 2007 to nearly 2 million in 2016.
