What our 2019 delegates said:

This event was superbly organised providing clear and practical guidance and goal-setting and the importance of critical thinking and confidence to success.  A wonderful start to the new year and essential for any tourism professional, regardless of industry category
A diverse and thoroughly enjoyable panel of speakers from across the tourism sector and beyond made it an inspirational and thought-provoking event.
Tourism Space LIVE 2020 was an inspiring day.  It was one of the most enjoyable conferences I have ever attended.  I took pages of notes which is a great sign that the content was relevant and useful.
A very well-thought out day.  The day evolved seamlessly and the range of expertise was applaudable.  Thought-provoking and very informative.
Excellent masterclass which was executed exceptionally well, very educational and with a nice dose of humour which helped listeners to focus.  I’m looking forward to next year’s session.
I was very impressed with the quality of speakers and definitely came away with a number of ideas to implement in my business which will improve service levels and profitability.  I have pencilled it in the diary for 2020 and will bring a number of my management team from the hotel.
