The hunt for a new set of Tomorrow’s Travel Leaders has now begun. Together with our new partners Attraction World, Virgin Holidays and WTM London, we invite applications and nominations for the new TTG 30 Under 30.
Are you under the age of 30, working in the travel industry and truly making your mark? Or do you know someone who is?
The hunt for the new 30 under the age of 30 likely to be the travel industry leaders of the future begins today, with the support of our new partners Attraction World, Virgin Holidays and World Travel Market London.
We welcome applications and nominations from companies across the travel industry, from travel agencies to tour operators, tourist boards to PR companies, to join the new intake of the TTG 30 Under 30.
And as the project, affiliated with the ITT, enters its fifth year, the profile of the TTG Tomorrow’s Travel Leaders programme for young people in travel is bigger than ever.
This November will see the third Tomorrow’s Travel Leaders Conference, open to all young achievers across travel, while the TTG Mentoring Scheme continues to spark fruitful relationships across the industry.
The winners of the new TTG Scholarships – an all tuition fees paid MSc Travel Business Leadership course and a BSc (Hons) Travel Business Management course at Leeds Beckett University – are also announced today.
Why enter the 30 Under 30?
Everyone selected for this year’s 30 Under 30 will be invited to hear from speakers drawn from today’s travel industry leaders at a series of networking events and dinners.
They will also have the opportunity to spark up meaningful business relationships among their fellow 30 Under 30 members, while seeing themselves profiled in TTG over the course of the year.
“We are so excited to see which high flying travel people will emerge this year, after seeing the successes of so many of the 30 Under 30 members over the last four years,” said Daniel Pearce, TTG Media managing director.
“A number of those who have been part of the 30 in previous years have moved into senior positions in travel. I know all of them will tell you they have benefited richly from the profile, the learning and the relationships they have established through being one of the 30 Under 30.
“This year we are delighted to be working with a new set of partners who are all closely associated with developing the best young people in travel, with all three having featured 30 Under 30 members in the past.”
Virgin Holidays’ Lee Haslett, a 30 Under 30 member in 2012, is now sales director at Virgin Holidays, while Simon Applebaum, who joined the 30 Under 30 in the same year, is managing director of Attraction World.
