Tui northern region managing director Andrew Flintham, Carnival UK president Simon Palethorpe and Hays Travel chiefs Irene Hays and Jonathon Woodall are among the keynote speakers confirmed for a new three-day Travel Weekly Future of Travel virtual event next month.
The Future of Travel Spring Forum will take place on the mornings of March 15, 17 and 19 and will follow the format of September’s highly-successful Future of Travel Week, with a mix of interviews, panel discussions and presentations on issues facing the industry and related sectors.
The event will be free to attend as Travel Weekly continues to support the industry through the Covid-19 pandemic, with registered attendees given early access to the content in advance of the wider Travel Weekly audience.
The Future of Travel Spring Forum also marks the continuation of an established partnership with Google, which hosted and contributed to the inaugural Future of Travel live events and conferences before the Covid-19 pandemic and will share exclusive insight from speakers including travel industry leader Finnbar Cornwall.
Lucy Huxley, editor-in-chief of Travel Weekly Group, said: “We traditionally hold one of most popular Travel Weekly Business Breakfasts in March as we assess the peak trading period and the outlook for the year ahead, and the timing of our spring forum this year feels particularly pertinent a year on from the first national lockdown and the effective shutdown of the industry.
“We are delighted to continue our partnership with Google on our Future of Travel portfolio of events and are grateful to the leading executives who have agreed to share their time to discuss the outlook for their companies and the wider industry.”
She added: “We will be announcing further details of the event and our speaker line-up over the next month and believe the Future of Travel Spring Forum will offer yet more compelling and insightful content and advice as the industry attempts to chart a path through the Covid-19 pandemic.”
