Travel DAZE location revealed!

Just in case you’re not already counting down the days to this year’s Travel DAZE, we’ve got some exciting news for you.

Not only will Travel DAZE 2022 take place in person for the first time in two years, we’ll be hosting you at Sydney’s historic Palace Chauvel!

The heritage-listed Chauvel Cinema has been the spiritual home of Australia’s film culture for 40 years, and on 9 June it will play host to Australia’s most influential forum for the travel industry, 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.

So far we’ve revealed Australia’s most loved clever person Dr Karl Kruszelniki will 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, infectious disease physician, Dr Nick Coatsworth, G Adventure’s fantabulous founder Bruce Poon Tip and NIB Travel Insurance’s Aussie sales superstar, Matt Endycott! 

But watch this space: each week we’ll clue you in on a few of the great minds who will be sharing thought-provoking keynotes, interviews and panels on the day.

Who knows who we will reveal next!
