Logie winner Costa Georgiadis to speak at Travel DAZE 2019!

He’s just won a Logie, and now Costa Georgiadis is busy prepping for another big event… Travel DAZE 2019!

That’s right, folks. The man known for his eccentricity and bushranger-style beard, and named Most Popular Presenter at the 2019 TV WEEK Logie Awards on Sunday night, is speaking at the travel industry’s most disruptive conference.

For those who have no idea who Georgiadis is, he’s a Greek-Australian landscape architect and TV presenter on the ABC’s Gardening Australia who is all about sustainability – the theme of Travel DAZE this year.

You can read more about Georgiadis’ back-story here, or check out his Logie acceptance speech below:

The Logie winner will line up alongside a stack of other great speakers at Travel DAZE on Wednesday 28 August at the NSW Teachers Federation in Sydney, including former Greens leader Bob Brown and Google’s Michelle Allen. Check them all out here.

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.

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.
