Past Events

Since 2013, the team behind Dublin Travel Massive have hosted a series of travel networking events. Started at TBEX conference in October 2013, we’ve hosted events to coincide with IFITTPhoCusWright as well as a number of standalone events in between.

December 2018: “Wrap Party” 
We hosted a “wrap party” to send off 2018 in style. Partnering with the fantastic Everleigh venue, our sponsors Viasat and CarTrawler joined Pauline, Kevin and Mark to host the event on 12th of December. This was a great networking event with open-mic introductions to new and existing members of the TravelMassive community in Dublin. Great to see startups, scale-ups, established players and investors in the room. 
We were lucky to be joined by Rafal Kostrzewa @dublinheadshot to capture some great photos of the event
