Hey everyone! I’m super-duper excited about, our upcoming conference to teach people how to build sustainable careers in the travel industry. It’s going to be the biggest — and best — travel media event of the year! I have some exciting updates:
But for those who weren’t able to get tickets, we’re working on solutions. First, I’m sure people will cancel. Plans can fall through, so we’re going to open ticket sales again in the coming months. Join our waitlist and get first dibs on tickets when they come out.
Second, we’re working on some sort of recording or livestream option for those who live in far off lands and can’t make it. It’s surprisingly difficult (and expensive), but we’re trying to come up with a solution. I hope to have better news on this front by the summer!
