Fresh crop of Travel DAZE speakers revealed!

Did last week’s Travel DAZE announcement have you chomping at the bit to find out who else is on the lineup?

It’s your lucky day! As promised, we’re letting slip more of our stellar line-up today, revealing who will be speaking at our first in-person Travel DAZE since 2019.

Australia’s most influential forum for the travel industry will take place on 9 June this year, bringing together the best and brightest minds to help you thrive in a post-COVID world.

After two wildly successful virtual events in 2020 and 2021, featuring the likes of Jane Goodall, Graham “Skroo” Turner, Dr Norman Swan and loads more, we’re ready to host an even bigger and better face-to-face event.

Last week, we revealed Australia’s most loved clever person Dr Karl Kruszelniki would be among the great minds who will be sharing thought-provoking keynotes, interviews and panels on the day!

The good doctor is joined on the lineup by mega advertising executive and creative thinker, Justin Drape; IHG supremo and accommodation sector guru, Leanne Harwood; Air New Zealand’s high flying general manager of sales, Paul Mclean; former deputy chief medical officer and infectious disease physician, Dr Nick Coatsworth and…

Drum roll…

G Adventure’s fantabulous founder Bruce Poon Tip and NIB Travel Insurance’s Aussie sales superstar, Matt Endycott! 

Travel DAZE is Australia’s premiere TED for travel forum and is a must-attend event for retailers, marketers, senior management and sales teams to prepare for the future of travel technology, creativity, marketing and retail.
