After five years, TravelCon has ended for good. 2022 was TravelCon’s last year. Due to the pandemic and the financial strain it caused, we couldn’t operate any longer. There simply wasn’t enough interest post-COVID to make the event work the way it had in the past and continue to run it in a way that made TravelCon…..well, TravelCon.
When it became clear to us in early April that we couldn’t continue, there was a lot of sadness among the team. You always want to end something on your own terms but, alas, it was not meant to be. There was just no path that would let us continue forward. Trust us. We tried.
We went all out in Memphis and can confidently say that we went out on top. I’m super proud of everything we have accomplished in five years, and I want to thank you for all your support.
We definitely believe TravelCon set a high bar and made a difference in the industry. We brought in outside and new voices, focused on topics not normally covered at other conferences, paid speakers for their time (not something common in this industry), and helped launch some careers.
We can only hope that the standard we set continues on after we are gone.
Before we shut the lights off for good, we just wanted to give a heartfelt thank you for your support over the years. We couldn’t have made it this far without you and your flexibility. It has meant the world to us to have such a solid community.
We wish you all the best during the next stages in your career and life and hope our paths cross again.
Farewell and best wishes,
The TravelCon team
