Rebuilding a sustainable future

Travel DAZE 2021 will bring together the best minds from within the travel industry along with external experts to foster the reboot of travel and tourism. A travel industry reboot must come from innovation for a lasting and healthy rebound. The time has come to adapt, adopt unconventional ideas, ground-breaking technology, marketing prowess and a willingness for change. What will a reboot involve? How will this industry's pause be turned into a creative renewal? A sub theme of technology will be included to encourage conversation around how it will shape the future of the travel industry. Travel DAZE will explore what tangible steps business owners, travel agents, tour operators, marketers and communication specialists can take toward rebuilding a sustainable and profitable future. The travel industry will rebound but only innovative players will thrive, don't be left behind.

Gil McLachlan CEO, McLachlan Travel Group Australia and USA

Travel DAZE brings speakers external to the industry so they don't have to toe a party line and are not beholding to the audience members booking loyalties. Travel too often looks inwards for solutions and ideas AND they are old ideas. Travel hasn't changed much in 20 years. All change in travel over that period has been brought in from external sources.

Oliver Tams THINK

Travel DAZE was an immersive experience into the minds of some of the best travel marketing professionals. Well worth the time and expense.
