AIANTA Visitor Outreach Program

Since 2007, AIANTA has been showcasing Indian Country tourism on a global stage by establishing a presence at the world’s leading travel trade shows, including Showcase USA-Italy, ITB (Germany). IPW, Brand USA Travel Week, NTA Travel Exchange and World Travel Market (London).

International Outreach

Since AIANTA first entered the international market, overseas tourism to Indian Country has nearly tripled, growing from 693,000 travelers in 2007 to nearly 2 million visitors in 2018.

 

Join AIANTA at Key Tourism Trade Shows

Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian tourism enterprises looking to attract more visitors to their destinations have the opportunity to join AIANTA in building a presence in some of the most important tourism markets around the world.

For maximum exposure, join AIANTA in person at these showcases and enjoy a substantial savings over attending as an individual entity.
