Former Greens leader and absolute legend Bob Brown to speak at Travel DAZE

The line up for Travel DAZE just got a little bit bigger (and a lot more legendary) with the addition of former parliamentary leader for the Australian Greens Bob Brown!

An absolute powerhouse of a man, Brown was elected to the Australian Senate in 1996 where he led the national debate for 16 years on issues including climate change, democracy, preventative healthcare, conservation, and human rights.

Since resigning in 2012, Brown established the Bob Brown Foundation, a not for profit organisation dedicated to supporting action campaigns for the environment in Australia and our region.

Sustainability is more than just having a green thumb and we just can’t wait to hear Brown’s take on how the industry can help contribute to a better future.

If that’s not enough to get you excited about Travel DAZE (it definitely is), we’ve also got a special deal going right now to make it easier for you to bring your mates along.

If you buy two tickets to the only TED-style talks for travel, you’ll get one for FREE!

Plus, early bird tickets are still on sale, so there’s no better time to buy than right NOW.

Travel DAZE keeps it interesting: 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.

To secure your spot at the travel industry’s most disruptive conference and take advantage of the early bird special of just $295 per ticket (and the three-for-two deal), click here.
