Intrepid co-founder and Chairman Darrell Wade will be the headline speaker at the inaugural LATA Sustainability Conference.

Darrell, who is also chair of the Intrepid Foundation, and vice-chair of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), co-founded Intrepid in 1989.

It is now the world’s largest adventure travel company and Darrell is one of the sector’s most influential leaders playing an instrumental role in advancing the industry’s sustainability agenda through his work. 

The Sustainability Conference, held on the third day of LATA Expo, will see Darrell making the case for sustainability within a business.  

He said: “I am delighted to be joining LATA Expo to share insights gained over 35 years at Intrepid Travel.  

“Sustainable travel is certainly becoming front of mind for many travellers, but it is a collective effort to make a real impact, and we need to work together rather than as individuals.  Intrepid has embedded sustainability into our very core and it’s an integral part of the business.

“ We can see that the benefit is not just to our customers, but across our staff and everyone we work with in the places we visit.

“I am looking forward to discussing not just the challenges we face as an industry but also sharing some positive success stories.” 

The LATA Sustainability Conference will take place on 26 June at LATA Expo in London.
