The Adventure Travel Trade Association
The organization has been at the forefront of promoting safety, integrity, environmental protection, health and the legal rights of independent operators for more than 20 years.
While many Americans love traveling, some travel hazards can pose a serious threat to your safety. As part of its annual “Take Action Day,” the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) has passed a resolution urging Congress to support a bill that would establish a travel safety committee in the U.S. House of Representatives.
When you travel, you might be surprised to learn that there are some travel dangers that you can’t see. In fact, some of them are quite serious.
The ATTA resolution, which was introduced by Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN), would establish a committee of travel professionals that would review and recommend improvements to the Department of Homeland Security’s Traveler Screening Advancement Act (HR 649) and the Travel Promotion Act (HR 875).
Why is adventure travel so popular in the United States?
While you might be surprised to hear this, more than 1 million people visit American national parks every year. But you probably didn’t know that a number of those visitors come from outside the United States.
The reason for this is that Americans are passionate about the outdoors. The U.S. National Park Service has been ranked as the number one destination for active adults, and the outdoor industry has grown by over 100 percent since 2005.
As a result, the Adventure Travel Trade Association has decided to call on Congress to establish a travel safety committee in the U.S. House of Representatives.
What is the purpose of the ATTA?
ATTA was founded in 1946 to provide information about travel and adventure activities. Over the years, ATTA has evolved into a strong voice for travelers, providing information about travel and adventure activities. The mission of the ATTA is to protect and promote the rights of American adventurers, to provide educational programs and services to the public, and to promote the business of adventure travel.

The travel industry has been growing in recent years. This has been attributed to a number of factors. Including an increase in leisure time and disposable income among consumers, and the increased availability of low cost air travel. For example, with regard to airlines, the growth in airline seats sold is about 12 percent each year. In addition, the cost of fuel has also been on the rise. Consumers have a need for an effective means to find cheap flights and make flight reservations. To meet this need, some consumers utilize travel websites that provide flight reservation services. These websites can be used to search for flights between various airports, including both domestic and international airports.
