Why are your speakers from outside travel?

We believe that to inspire future trends in travel, we need to look beyond what’s happening right now and think about what’s going to happen next. That’s why we invite creative thinkers and disruptors from around the globe and across industries to share their insights, so you develop your own truly original ideas.

What makes Ministry of Ideas and un-conference?

We call ourselves an un-conference because part of our content is curated by you, the audience. If you want to get in touch and lead a DISCUSS session, get in touch!

Sounds great! What’s a DISCUSS session?

DISCUSS give you the opportunity to bring a trend, topic or challenge to our community that you’d like to explore in more depth. If you want to host one, pitch us your idea and we’ll add the best ones to our agenda.

Can I apply to participate in a keynote or panel?

All of our speakers are from outside travel, as we believe to inspire true innovation in our industry, we need to look beyond it for fresh ideas. So the answer is, if you’re at the top of your game from other creative industries, then yes!
