Keynote Speaker

John Rasmus is the former Editor-in-Chief of National Geographic Adventure, an award winning magazine on adventure travel and the outdoors which ceased publication during the recent recession. During its 10-year print life, Adventure won four National Magazine Awards, including General Excellence in 2002; and the SATW Lowell Thomas Award for Best Travel Magazine in 2002, 2006, and 2008. Formerly editor of both Outside and Men's Journal, John has published such notable writers as Tim Cahill, Philip Caputo, Jon Krakauer, Sebastian Junger, and David Quammen, many for the first time in a national publication. For several years he wrote a nationally syndicated newspaper column on adventure travel for Universal Press Syndicate. In 2008, John received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Adventure Travel Trade Association, and in 2009 he was inducted into the Media Industry News editorial and design Hall of Fame. He is currently an Editor-at-Large for National Geographic Books, and an editorial consultant for Above magazine, a "green" lifestyle publication based in the UK.
