This year, Travel DAZE has brought together an absolute belter of a speaker line-up that includes cruise veteran Adam Goldstein, all the way from the US of A.
Goldstein serves as the global chair of the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), a position he previously held in 2015 and 2016. His current term began in 2019 and continues through 2020.
Goldstein is an industry expert, having spent the majority of his career in leadership roles with Royal Caribbean International (RCL).
He joined RCL in 1988 as vice president and corporate secretary. He later led the organisation’s market development and then international sales and marketing.
From 2007 to 2014, Goldstein led RCL as president and CEO, during which time he oversaw the organisation’s development and introduction of the Oasis and Quantum classes.
In 2014, Goldstein was named president and chief operating officer of Royal Caribbean Cruises, overseeing human resources, information technology, supply chain, corporate communications, safety and environment, government relations, guest port operations, and commercial development.
In 2018, Goldstein was appointed vice chairman of RCL, during which time he oversaw global government relations and destination development efforts. He retired from his position as vice chair of the company in March this year.
Throughout his career, Goldstein has remained an active member of the travel and tourism industry.
He has served as chair of the Florida Caribbean Cruise Association and as the national chair of the Travel Industry Association of America (now the U.S. Travel Association), as well as being inducted into the Travel Industry Hall of Leaders and the International Maritime Hall of Fame.
Goldstein serves on the board of Trustees of INSEAD, and on the Energy Security Leadership Council, a leadership affiliate of Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE) in Washington DC.
He graduated with honours from Princeton University, and also has a law degree from Harvard University and an MBA with distinction from INSEAD.
Check out who else will be speaking alongside Goldstein at Travel DAZE 2020 here.
The event (which will be the only travel industry event of its scale in Australia this year) will virtually bring together the best minds from within the travel sector, along with external experts, to foster its recovery from COVID-19.
Presented by the Italian National Tourist Board, Travel DAZE 2020 will explore what tangible steps business owners, travel agents, tour operators, marketers, and communication specialists can take toward rebuilding a sustainable and profitable future.
The conference will kick off on Monday 2 November and finish up on Friday 6 November, and the best part is that it’s absolutely FREE!
