This initiative shines the spotlight on the travel industry’s most inspiring young people who have made an outstanding contribution to their business. 

Daniel Pearce, CEO, TTG Media commented: 

“There are countless networking events in travel, but there aren’t many opportunities for the younger stars in the business to meet, to network and to be inspired by some of travel’s current leaders. The TTG 30 Under 30 programme not only celebrates these individuals but also gives them a real opportunity to learn from some of the most senior people in the industry as well as each other. I’d personally like to congratulate Oliver on making it to the final 30.”  

The competition for the initiative was ambitious, with nominations across many industry sectors. A senior panel of judges from TTG, travel giant TUI, alumni of the programme, and the Institute of Travel & Tourism (ITT) met recently to choose the 30 successful candidates. As part of the final 30, Oliver will be invited to a series of networking dinners and events, with speakers drawn from the most senior levels within travel. 

Oliver said:  

“I am truly honoured to be selected as one of the 30 individuals in the 11th year of the TTG 30 Under 30 programme. The travel industry is filled with opportunities, but it often lacks platforms for young professionals to connect, learn & be established by leaders. This initiative not only recognises our contributions but also provides a valuable chance to learn from the industry’s most experiences professionals and peers from all corners of travel. I’m excited to be part of a group who will, collectively, shape the future of travel in years to come.” 

Congratulations Oliver!
