Check out all the photos from Travel DAZE 2018!

In case you somehow missed the news, Travel DAZE 2018 was held yesterday!

Attendees were treated to keynotes from 20 fabulous speakers, including our headliner and founder of G Adventures, Bruce Poon Tip.

The speakers delivered presentations on topics like technology, marketing, the future of the industry, and how to Kick Arse in general – that was the event’s theme, after all.

You can expect to see stories covering a few of the speaker sessions until the end of the week, BTW. And you should be excited about it! We got some pretty damn inspiring speakers in, including executives from companies like Facebook, Intrepid, Collette, Airbnb and Velocity Frequent Flyer.

If you missed out, we did warn you.

But don’t worry – you can now live vicariously through these photos!

So keep scrolling down to see all our speakers, as well as a few shots of the following Travelzoo-sponsored networking drinks after the event.
