Travel Massive is a worldwide network of meet-up events for travel professionals, which has been running successfully since 2010. It currently has between 15,000 to 20,000 members worldwide and 80 community chapters across the globe.
The Travel Massive global networking community is unique in how it attracts a diverse cross-section of the travel industry and aims to make the most of this by bringing people of different backgrounds together who are connected by their passion for travel.
The Travel Massive Edinburgh chapter, led and organised by travel professionals:
- Lesley Judge of Tourism Marketing Consultancy Smart Tourism
- Katy Duncan of UK tour operator Haggis Adventures
- Blogger Julie Galante of This International Life
Aims to celebrate all aspects of travel within Edinburgh and to bring together its travel community to learn, network, make new connections and more.
The bi-monthly Edinburgh events have different themes and speakers, aiming to attract a community of like-minded travel professionals, including tour companies, hotels, venues and visitor attractions, bloggers, media, tech and start-ups.
The March 2015 launch event at Jake’s Bar, St Christopher’s Inns on Market Street included guest speakers from the new Youth Travel Industry Group for Edinburgh and the latest news on travel technology events and opportunities from the Edinburgh Tourism Action Group (ETAG). The evening event attracted over 60 travel industry professionals from a wide variety of sectors.
Travel Massive Edinburgh Chapter Leader Katy Duncan, of Haggis Adventures, said:
“The Travel Massive Edinburgh team are delighted at how our first Edinburgh event turned out. Our host venue was fantastic, fun and friendly, our guests were a lively and engaging bunch, sharing the evening’s events on social media, and of course, our guest speakers contributed by sharing ideas and updates, offering the Edinburgh travel community plenty of ideas to develop, grow and make connections.”
Travel Massive Edinburgh Chapter Leader Lesley Judge of Smart Tourism added:
“The relaxed atmosphere allowed for plenty of networking and the feedback and support we have received from the Edinburgh travel community so far has been incredibly positive. We’re now looking forward to our second Travel Massive Edinburgh event in May which focuses on luxury travel.”
