Our Industry Expertise

Adventure Engine is an Adventure travel and technology expert.  In 2005 we introduced our “Cloud / SAS” system. The Adventure Engine model was revolutionary and our company presented at numerous industry events and conferences. Our company has listened to our clients and is constantly watching online trends.

This decision has proven timely with the rise of community platforms worldwide and the Adventure Engine solution will continue to be the leading edge solution for tourism and travel organizations working to market, sell, and profit from this industry.

Jan Dwire – Online Revealed Conference

Amber Hayes was a great addition to the Panel discussion “Selling Complex Products Online” at the Online Revealed Conference 2007. Amber’s insights gained from her personal experience in the industry were very helpful to our audience. The remarks from the attendees sang high praises for the content and delivery of the session.
