What you need to know about Travel DAZE 2019

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last little while, Travel DAZE is back in 2019 with a swathe of top speakers, comfier seats and a swanky new venue to boot.

Travel DAZE is essentially TED for travel: no sales pitches, no death-by-PowerPoint – just rapid-fire 15-minute talks by smart folks. Or we unleash the T-Rex.

We’ve lined up some top-notch speakers for the event on Wednesday 28 August at the NSW Teachers Federation in Sydney, which you can check out here.

This year, Travel DAZE will tackle sustainability, but we’re not just talking about carbon offsetting and charitable practices.

Companies must now adopt a social cause, an organisational purpose, 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 creating the most sustainable travel businesses we’ve ever seen.
