Travel DAZE is back with a rip-roaring line-up, comfier seats at a swanky new venue and a world first – super early bird tickets priced at $250!

Companies must now adopt a social cause to give their business purpose and a long term business strategy so it remains relevant and sustainable.

Sustainability is about marketing the sustainable credentials you have, sustaining staff and using tech to sustain growth. It’s about retail and wholesale moving away from the unsustainable race to push the lowest rate. It’s about advances in aviation, creative ideas based on moral principles and sustaining your customer base, market share and bottom line.

Travel DAZE explores how to create the most sustainable travel businesses the world has seen.

So don’t be a dinosaur, come along on August 28 for a day of TED talks for the industry: no sales pitches, no death-by-powerpoint – 15-min talks by smart folks. Or we unleash the T-Rex.

Here’s the speaker’s list so far, but stay tuned! We’ll be releasing more big names soon.
