In this informative and inspirational session, we will assess why more and more affluent consumers are looking for a seriously adventurous slant to their travels – or even an all-out epic challenge that will change their lives forever. Speaking to a panel of travel planners experienced in the field of epic travel and brilliant expedition leaders, April Hutchinson, editor of TTG Luxury, will look at how these companies operate, what their clients look for, how they deliver it, and also explore some of the last remaining unexplored adventure destinations out there, and the challenges and responsibilities companies face in taking clients there.
