What is Travel Massive?

Travel Massive is a global initiative to connect people in the travel industry locally, bringing together travel brands, travel startups, travel bloggers, tourism companies, and travel professionals. Our mission is to connect thousands of people around the world to meet, learn, and collaborate in the online travel industry through organised events worldwide. We are run by a global team of organisers who lead Travel Massive events in their cities.

Our Story

Travel Massive was founded in 2009 in Sydney, Australia by Ian Cumming and Alicia Smith, two newly-minted Sydneysiders looking to connect with other people in the local travel industry. It started as a casual meeting on a Sydney rooftop bar with a few others from the online travel industry and within a few months the events had grown to a massive event, attracting international guests and travel CEOs. Other inspired travel professionals started events in their own cities including the second chapter in Toronto in 2010. Travel Massive has now grown to more than 40 cities all over the world but we’re not stopping. Our goal is to connect more travel brands, bloggers and professionals in more cities to meet, learn and collaborate!

Travel Massive is based on 3 Key Values:

  • Free to attend events

  • Open to all travel industry

  • Connect and share globally

Travel Massive comes to Seattle, home of the grand-daddy of all travel innovation. Starting with quarterly meet-ups, Travel Massive Seattle will be a vibrant community for start-ups, established travel companies, bloggers, and social media junkies who are passionate about travel and the travel business. Organised by Beth Whitman from Wanderlust and Lipstick,Keryn Means from Walking on Travels, Mary Schimmelman from Holland America Line, Kristen Gill from Kristen Gill Media and Adam Luchsinger from Google.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
