THE COLLECTIVE’S IDEAS CHANGING THE FUTURE OF TRAVEL

1 -min. read

The 2016 Ministry of Ideas is going poolside at SLS South Beach for the travel industry’s first ever un-conference – and we asked you, the collective, to OWN IT.

And OWN IT you did. Following a flurry of innovative, amusing and downright provocative Big Ideas pitches, we’ve handpicked the first instalment of inspired rebels who’ll take to the stage on Monday 6 June:

HOTEL EXTINCTION.
Will hotels as we know them cease to exist in the future?
Parker Stanberry, Oasis Collections

RISING IN THE EAST.
How China is customising luxury travel for an emerging creative class
Alan Luo, GOV Travel

OUT OF OFFICE.
What is experiential leave and why should you do it?
Fatima Hawkins, dnata

INDIE TRAVEL GOES COLLECTIVE.
How agents will embrace the shared economy
Joshua Friedman, Josh Friedman Luxury Travel

TOTAL IMMERSION.
Using found materials and local talent to create a connected experience
Kent Lindvall, Treehotel

SERVICE, FUTUREFIED.
Taking a look at the evolution of service
Aldo Melpignano, Borgo Egnazia

But it doesn’t stop there – thanks to an overwhelming response, we’re increasing the number of Big Ideas to 12. Keep an eye on THE SHIFT for the second announcement next Thursday.

Plus, tune in to liveLE on the LE homepage from 14:30 EST on 6 June to watch the Big Ideas speakers in action.
