NEATS

1st Annual Northeast Adventure and Trip Symposium (NEATS)

2018 brought with it the Adventure Program’s first ever Fall programming season! Our Adult Trips have already passed, but coming up, we will be hosting the 1st Annual Northeast Adventure and Trip Symposium (NEATS). This is a conference for all established and emerging outdoor adventure and travel industry professionals, students, and vendors to come together and exchange ideas, network, collaborate, and better the industry. This great, new, event will be happening November 9-11. Both full weekend and single day registrations are available. More information can be found here, and you can sign up by calling 518-656-9462.

Our Mission is to understand common practices and analyze emerging trends in off-site program and risk management in the Trip and Travel industry by promoting open dialogue and strategy development between outdoor professionals. 

Our Goals are:

  • To encourage the discussion of individuals’ risk management practices and how those pertain to their organizations’ standards
  • To introduce a lasting, inclusive network of established and emerging industry professionals through a cost-effective and inclusive platform
  • To facilitate planning for the successful implementation of newly introduced resources, in a collaborative environment
