Travel Centres announce second headline speaker.

#Traveltradetogether

Travel Centres is delighted to announce that the second speaker confirmed for this year’s 18th annual conference and supplier workshop is Jo Linehan who is the Editor of the Sunday Times Ireland CLIMATE supplement and a regular contributor on sustainability-related issues on the Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk. Jo will be providing conference delegates with advice and insights on the various ways that they can contribute to sustainability within the travel environment at both an individual and collective level and so should prove to be an extremely popular session at the event which takes places this year on November 3rd and 4th at the Killashee Hotel, Naas.

Jo Linehan is the Editor of the Sunday Times Ireland CLIMATE supplement and contributes as a sustainability columnist to The Sunday Times Ireland Home magazine and Irish Country Magazine.

With over a decade of experience working as a lifestyle journalist, she has contributed as a travel writer for IMAGE Magazine, CARA Magazine, Forbes, and The Sunday Times. Jo was also a travel writer for The Irish Times Weekend Magazine from 2017-2021.

She has collaborated as a content creator for several travel destinations and organisations, including recent collaborations with The River Lee Hotel Cork and Fáilte Ireland.

A passionate advocate for the Irish travel and lifestyle sectors, and with an MSC in Management for Sustainable Development from DCU, Jo uses her writing and content creation platforms to help bridge the gap between industry and ESG (Environmental Social Governance).

The internationally renowned economist Dan Brown will be this year’s keynote speaker and Travel Centres are currently finalising arrangements for a further speaker who will be addressing the potential threats and opportunities associated with the increasing adoption of AI solutions within the travel industry worldwide, such as Chat GPT-4.

Joint headline sponsors for this year’s event are Royal Caribbean and Silversea and other sponsors confirmed so far, include Air Canada, Hertz, Melia Hotels, MSC Cruises, Stuba and United Airlines.

The social theme for this year’s conference is Musical Icons. Stay tuned to Travelbiz for more over the coming weeks.
