NOBODY PANIC: Travel DAZE is on Monday – here’s what’s in store!

We’ve been warning you for weeks, and the day is finally here!

Well, almost.

It’s on Monday! Which means this is not only your last reminder for the week, but your last reminder ever.

With a specific focus on marketing, strategy, digital, creative, technology and retail, this year’s overarching theme is: Kick Arse.

YOU GOT COMPETITORS? THIS EVENT WILL HELP YOU KICK THEIR ARSE.

Mystified by tech? Travel DAZE will tell you which kick arse technology you need.

Marketing campaigns been a bit slow? Hear from the best marketers in Australia how they kicked arse and sold millions.

Wrangling with your strategic direction? Engage in niche streams with opportunities for intimate Q&A sessions with speakers who have kicked arse, big time.

Future trends keeping you up at night? This is a medical problem so talk to your doctor – but if that doesn’t work, attend Travel DAZE.

Long story short, you’d have rocks in your head not to be part of this festival of Kick Arse for the travel industry. And if it’s not the best conference you’ve ever attended, then you can kick our arse… gently.

And as a special last-minute Friday deal, tickets are now 50 per cent off! Get your half-price ticket here before you miss out and have to pay full price.

It’s only for the first 10 people, BTW, so you’d better hurry.

We’ve got tons of amazing things in store for you: think thought-provoking and inspiring speaker sessions, networking galore, and just an all-around great day out of the office.

And now, every Travel DAZE attendee will also receive a goodie bag!

As you should very well know, this year’s Travel DAZE headline speaker is none other than the founder of G Adventures, Bruce Poon Tip!

To celebrate this wonderful fact, G Adventures have decided to sponsor the event – which means each and every guest will get some G Adventures pressies. If you don’t have tickets yet, we’d suggest you get some last-minute (at half the price may we add) right herebecause along with a G Adventures brochure, every Travel DAZE guest will receive one of four Planeterra items.

  • A Hand Woven Scarf, from the Ccaccaccollo Women’s Weaving Co-op, in Peru
  • A Pair of Hand Woven Socks, from the Ccaccaccollo Women’s Weaving Co-Op, in Peru
  • A Hand Woven Hat, from the Ccaccaccollo Women’s Weaving Co-Op, in Peru
  • A bag of medium roast Mi Cafecito Coffee, from Sarapiqui coffee growers, in Costa Rica

For the uninitiated, Planeterra is G Adventures’ non-profit partner, and helps empower local communities and conserve their cultures. They manage over 50 social enterprises all over the world, which benefit women, at-risk youth, and rural and indigenous communities.

Planeterra has been working with the Ccaccaccollo community since 2005 to develop a women’s weaving cooperative. G Adventures groups are able to visit this community as part of the Sacred Valley Tour, and began working with the CoopeSarapiqui cooperative in 2011 – helping them to build a sustainable enterprise.

And if you’re coming to Travel DAZE, you’ll take home something from either the Sarapiqui coffee growers or the Ccaccaccollo Women’s Weaving Co-Op!

To repeat: Travel DAZE 2018 will be held this coming Monday September 3 at Belvoir Street Theatre, Surry Hills. Don’t forget!

For all other info or for a cheeky discount, contact Daisy Melwani: daisy@travelweekly.com.au.

See you Monday!
