Two Venues, Two Keynoters, Three Panels
The ETC’s Transatlantic Conference saw an exceptional selection of panellits as well as a think tank session during the day. Later on, the ETC hosted an evening reception at the resplendent Loft and Garden in Rockefeller Center.
Keynote speaker and PBS host Richard Bangs opened the conference with a provocative look at the European roots of adventure travel. Bangs’ extraordinary expeditions and peerless perspective urged the audience to redefine adventure in ways that reinvigorate the destination marketing of Europe. At the other end of the day, silver screen leading man turned travel writer Andrew McCarthy offered even further insight with anecdotes from his own European journeys.
