The event bought together travel experts both advertiser and publisher side for relaxed networking along with inspiring insights.
After an initial ‘Aloha’ welcome and receiving a lay on arrival, guests settled down to listen to our expert panel; Alex Keshen, Travel Publisher at Finder, Keith Mason, Founder of Point Hacks, Rebecca Wilson, CEO of Starts at 60 / Travel at 60 / Boom Baby, Alex Marshall from StartsWithA, Sophie Metcalfe, Business Development Director at Awin and Ryan Keller, Marketing at Luxury Escapes. The panel discussed a number of topics, including emerging tech, trends, and demographic targeting with insightful pieces. They also shared their favourite travel hacks, including the best credit card to help get you a flight upgrade which was well-received by guests.
Initial feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and we’d like to thank all who attended, as well as the panellists for contributing their expertise. Commission Factory and Awin look forward to running similar boutique-style events in future.
