What’s the Social Travel Summit about?

The Social Travel Summit is a platform for top international travel influencers to meet with industry representatives to exchange expertise, experience and ideas; to develop innovative strategies and tactics; and to build new sustainable relationships.

The first Social Travel Summit took place in Leipzig, Germany in April 2014 and was a highly successful event, attended by over 60 professionals from the travel industry and by 50 of the world’s best travel influencers, all personally invited because of their niche, reach and reputation.

In addition to a number of presentations, workshops and panel discussions, the Social Travel Summit was where a number of key collaborations began and it also resulted in the publishing of the first STS Think Tank report.

The Social Travel Summit in Hamburg 2015 built on this success by being the source of new, innovative collaborations between travel influencers and the tourism industry. After two days of inspiring and educational keynotes and seminars, networking and brainstorming, delegates scored the Summit a 4.7 out of 5. Various delegates, both influencers and industry, ranked the Summit as one of the best conferences they’ve ever attended.

On 19-20 September 2017, the Social Travel Summit will be held in Kitzbühel, Austria. Organised by iambassador with the support of Traveldudes and the Reiseblogger Kollektiv, and hosted by the Austrian National Tourist Office, Tirol Tourism and Kitzbühel Tourism, the Social Travel Summit will once again feature insightful keynotes, thought-provoking discussions on the future of destination and influencer marketing, as well as fun activities, events and tours. Our aim is to keep the Summit small (less than 150 delegates) to ensure a casual atmosphere that is conducive to learning, sharing ideas and networking.

We hope to see you there with us!
