Inaugural AdventureCon in Anchorage, AK
SPIN’s first AdventureCon will be held at the Alyeska Hotel & Resort, June 1-4, 2020. AdventureCon will deliver a combination of senior-level planner education, along with several opportunities to explore Anchorage and surrounding communities.
The event will offer a glacier cruise, a whale-watching cruise, dog sledding (with puppy cuddling), ‘flightseeing’ of Denali National Park, a visit to a wildlife conservation center, an iPhone photography workshop, hikes, outdoor yoga, and more. Education will include a senior planner round tables, and hands-on crisis drills.
“We created this new event in direct response to our members’ desire to explore destinations outside the lower 48 states. Unlike a familiarization trip, this event will include three hours of continuing education each day,” said SPIN founder Shawna Suckow, CSP, CMP.
“AdventureCon will be the first SPIN event to welcome members’ friends and family, because our members want time for both professional and personal pursuits. Why not combine them at an industry event?” said SPIN VP of Everything, Catherine Jensen.
AdventureCon is open to all planners with 10+ years of experience, along with their guests who are 18+. Suppliers who are AdventureCon sponsors also are welcome to attend. Registration and sponsorship spaces are very limited. For complete information visit www.spinplanners.com/adventurecon-2020.html.
