TIME TO SHARE
With less than three weeks to go until LE 2016 goes live, we’re getting more than a little amped up about unveiling all the action for one of this year’s most exciting new features: the revamped Ministry of Ideas, set to take place on Monday 6 June.
All you in-the-know insiders will be aware that for 2016, we’re rebelling against the traditional conference model to bring you the travel industry’s first ever ‘un-conference’, whereby YOU both create the content and choose who you want to listen to. We’re splitting our speakers into two groups: Big Ideas and Shared Ideas, all of whom think that their idea has the potential to change the future of travel. So: whose words of wisdom will you be hanging on to at SLS? It’s time to spill (some of) the beans…
Big Ideas are generated directly from the collective, with you submitting your pitches to speak over the last few weeks via the LE website. However, we can now announce that submissions are officially CLOSED! We’re currently sifting through all your inspired, informed and downright provocative ideas to find the ten most relevant to our collective. Keep your eyes peeled for the next edition of THE SHIFT, where we’ll be revealing who’s made it to the main stage…
Shared Ideas come from travel and creative industry influencers who will be sharing their expertise and insight on a range of unconventional topics. We’ve got one more Shared Ideas speaker up our sleeve (again, check out next week’s SHIFT to discover who they are), but our first three rebels are as follows:
ANA ANDJELIC & RACHEL CONLAN
SVP / GLOBAL STRATEGY DIRECTOR & MANAGING DIRECTOR OF LUXHUB, PART OF HAVAS GROUP
HELPING LUXURY AND LIFESTYLE BRANDS CHALLENGE CONVENTIONAL PARADIGMS TO DELIGHT THEIR CUSTOMERS
FROM STALKER TO BUTLER: DATA, EMPATHY AND HOSPITALITY
CEO & FOUNDER OF NOT JUST A LABEL
INFUSING NEW LIFE INTO THE FASHION SYSTEM BY CREATING AN ACCESSIBLE NETWORK AND FORUM
AUTHENTIC RADICALISM – THE CUSTOMER AS COLLABORATOR
GLOBAL CHIEF STRATEGY OFFICER AT CUMMINS & PARTNERS
PROMOTING DISRUPTIVE MARKETING STRATEGIES THAT DEFY THE STATUS QUO
IF BATMAN OWNED A HOTEL…
The Ministry of Ideas starts at 14:00 on Monday 6 June, with welcome mocktails poolside at SLS South Beach. Remember, we’ll be bringing you all the successful Big Ideas speakers and our final Shared Ideas speaker in the next edition of THE SHIFT in two weeks’ time – don’t miss it!
