Sixth Annual Awards Presented to AABBA Associate/Travel Partners

Sixth Annual AABBA Awards
Another Alaskan summer has passed, and earlier this week the Anchorage Alaska
Bed and Breakfast Association (AABBA) celebrated by honoring and showing
gratitude to all of our Associate / Travel Partners at the 6th annual Associate Travel Partner (ATP) Appreciation
and Awards Ceremony!  
The purpose of this event is to thank each and every
ATP for the great service and Alaskan experiences they provide to our
Each year the event is accompanied with
a spread of homemade foods, good conversation, stories and camaraderie. 
We always learn something new about the goods, services, and travel
opportunities available to our guests.  This
year, we learned that Once in a Blue Moose has
been a family owned Alaskan business since 1969, with now three generations of
Alaskans bringing unique gifts and souvenirs to Alaska’s Visitors.  And Ascending Path has extended its tour repertoire to
appeal to families and elders, with new adventures to come in 2016! What great
stories and plans!
