The travel industry’s most disruptive conference is well underway, with an impressive line-up of speakers sharing their insights into all things sustainability.
More than 320 attendees have flocked to the NSW Teachers Federation Conference Centre in Sydney’s Surry Hills to hear from the likes of former Greens leader Bob Brown, IHG’s Leanne Harwood, Gardening Australia host and Logie winner Costa Georgiadis, Abercrombie & Kent’s Sujata Raman, Planeterra’s Jamie Sweeting, Flight Centre’s Sandra Vardanega, and Intrepid Travel’s Darrell Wade.
Hosted by Better Homes and Gardens editor-in-chief Julia Zaetta, Travel DAZE 2019 kicked off with senior sustainable tourism development adviser Jennifer Bartlett, who explored contemporary thought on how sustainable tourism is a force for good, referencing a World Bank paper titled 20 Reasons why Sustainable Tourism Counts for Development.
Next up was Google’s head of travel, Michelle Allen, who shared some valuable lessons and strategies on how to sustain business growth and maximise the potential of an organisation’s number one asset – people.
And keep an eye out on our website over the coming days for a recap of each of the event’s key speakers.
