Hundreds of TravelManagers consultants from around Australia have started making their way to Darwin today where they’ll spend the next three days discussing all things home-based, technology and tourism.

Some 389 people are registered to attend the 10th national conference along with over 100 suppliers.

This year’s theme will focus on promoting ‘ONE’, which TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager Michael Gazal says resonates with everything the travel group does.

“ONE is many things – how we work together as ONE, that ONE big thing you may be working towards, or it could be the ONE thing you can change that will make the biggest difference in your life.”

Michael Gazal, TravelManagers Executive General Manager

“ONE is also about your sense of ONE – ONE individual working within ONE network, and what that means for our PTMs.”

Outside of this year’s theme, conference attendees can expect to take part in idea sharing activities and relationship building networking sessions.

Other highlights of this year’s event will be exploring the ins & outs of Darwin’s nightlife while also gaining insightful knowledge from this year’s guests speakers such as Red Shark Naomi Simson and Benjamin (Ben) Roberts-Smith the most decorated serving soldier in the Commonwealth.

Personal travel managers will also be called upon to take the stage and share their ‘Secrets to Success’, which Gazal expects will be particularly popular among delegates.

“The personal travel managers will share with their peers their own personal and professional journeys providing ideas, inspiration, skills and strategies that have contributed to their success,” he said.

“I have no doubt these presentations will provide invaluable wisdom and motivation and it really does highlight the genuine support and camaraderie that exists within the personal travel manager network.”

The TravelManagers 2017 national conference will be held 07-09 September at the Darwin Convention Centre.
