How many contracts have you worked and yet hardly met another traveler? If you ever wanted to find other travelers interested in traveling to similar destinations or find potential roommates/friends/soulmates this is the perfect venue. Many of the regular conference attendees consider it to be the ultimate traveler reunion.
There are lots of organized opportunities connecting travelers with travelers. The Traveler’s Conference organizes Official Events including the Newbie BootCamp Reception and the famous AfterParty. There are also other travelers, traveler groups and sponsors that organize their own social events which are listed under ‘Independent Events’ as we are made aware of them.
Facebook Groups Dedicated to TravCon Attendees:
Travelers are working hard to organize fun mini events before, during and after the conference. Here are some sites that are dedicated to those helping to create the magic of the conference. Jump in and join them! If anyone would like us to post specific events or websites for community gatherings, please email us.
