Jerry Springer

The Advantage Travel Partnership is pleased to announce Jerry Springer as the keynote speaker for the 2018 conference, being held in Miami, between 10 and 13 May 2018.

Throughout an illustrious career, Jerry Springer has become a cultural and civic icon. Springer’s notoriety is due in large to the hosting of his eponymous show, The Jerry Springer Show, for 27 seasons. Springer’s career also includes time as a lawyer, the mayor of Cincinnati, an award-winning newscaster, author, Broadway actor, executive producer, ballroom dancer, and much more.

“We are utterly thrilled that Jerry Springer will be our keynote speaker at our 2018 conference in Miami. Our conference theme focuses on building a story and how to effectively communicate this narrative with audiences, and Jerry’s career and experience is a perfect example of how best to achieve this. His exuberant personality adds an exciting dimension to the conference and will give our members a new perspective;” commented Julia Lo Bue-Said, Managing Director, Advantage Travel Partnerships.

The 2018 Advantage Conference will look to find that perfect balance between technology and human interaction under the theme, ‘The Next Chapter… Miami Advice’.

Leisure and Business Travel streams will run side by side and adhere to the theme through plenary sessions, keynote speakers, workshops and networking events. The programme content will also acknowledge the changes and challenges facing the travel industry in 2018, from GDPR to PSD2, and the Package Travel Directive.
