Where will the TravelManagers will hold their 2019 conference?

The Travel Managers 2018 conference has well and truly wrapped up.

Personal Travel Managers (PTMs) are on their way home, or off to their next destination, and Travel Weekly is being dragged kicking and screaming from the pristine Hawaiian beaches back to the daily grind.

Well, kicking and screaming as much as we can, as we suffer through a killer hangover from a big night of partying down at the TravelManagers gala awards!

You can read all about the fabulous gala night and award winners here.

But before PTMs celebrated their best and brightest and boogied the night away, Michael Gazal wrapped the conference up with a very exciting announcement.

The location of the 2019 TravelManagers conference!

Gazal told a crowd of PTMs, supplier partners and TravelManager’s NPO team the shortlist for next years location was a toss-up between Brisbane, Cairns, Hobart, Coober Pedy and Perth.

And the winner was…

Drum roll, please!

Next year PTMs will be living it up in one of Australia’s most up and coming destinations!

In between awesome conference sessions and activities, PTMs can take in the beautiful views at King’s park, have a stroll through historic Freemantle, catch up with their PTM family on a bar crawl through Perth’s booming small bar scene, or even take an extra day and go check out the cutest animals alive on Rottnest Island!

Excuse us while we stare at photos of happy little quokkas for the rest of the day.
