Fogle has rowed the Atlantic, crossed Antarctica on foot, run across the Sahara and crossed the Empty Quarter on camel and in May this year, he climbed Everest on his first attempt.
He made the climb for the British Red Cross in an attempt to highlight the environmental threat to mountains, and his new book Up: My Life’s Journey to the Top of Everest, also launches on the day of the ttgluxury Summit.
The event takes place on October 18 at Corinthia Hotel London, with more than 120 people expected to attend. The day-long conference will have a total of 20 speakers and panellists across a host of themes.
Fogle is also the Global Destination Ambassador for headline sponsor of the conference, Celebrity Cruises, and has worked with the brand since 2013, including curating a dedicated ’Great Adventures’ shore excursion programme across Europe, Alaska and the Caribbean.
“Ben faces any challenge with a huge lust for life and is sure to have a host of inspiring stories for delegates,” said editor of ttgluxury and conference moderator April Hutchinson. “In a world that is increasingly full of experience-seekers, this inspirational and affable broadcaster and traveller will also tell us what it takes to change the way you think about challenge and to understand what drives people who undertake them.”
Remaining tickets to attend the ttgluxury Summit cost from £149 for travel agents, or £199 for others in the sector.
