    What do you get when you combine a keen eye for business with a heart rooted in travel?

    Adam Schwab, the co-founder and CEO of Luxury Escapes, a company at the forefront of the travel industry that has “scaled to a billion dollars doing stuff that doesn’t scale,” as Schwab himself told Travel Weekly. 

    Also the co-host of The Contrarians Pod – the fastest-growing business podcast in Australia – Schwab founded Luxury Escapes 13 years ago with a mission to make travel more accessible, enjoyable and rewarding for everyone.

    So with a wealth of knowledge like this, it was a no-brainer to extend an invite for him to speak at Travel DAZE Exec 2024!

    Adam will give attendees an insight into ‘bootstrapping a business in a hyper-competitive global market’ and in the lead-up to the event, we’ve asked for his stand-out trend that he thinks will shape the future of travel.

    And it’s a goodie!

    We’re still a decade away but supersonic air travel will be the next chord-cutting event for travel,” he said.

    “It has the ability to literally cut flight time in half, NY to LHR in three hours or Melbourne to Europe in ten hours.

    “Could be an absolute game changer.”

    So don’t miss your chance to hear one of the industry’s best ‘out-of-the-box’ brains speak in Cairns this June!
