#NMDN 2016 THEME:
BACK TO THE FUTURE: Of Travel
This year's conference is all about bridging the gap in travel generations. Learning from the past, while bracing ourselves and supporting the movers and shakers of the travel future. Our panels will include millenials that have positioned themselves in the industry as everything from pilots to entrepreneurs. Our keynote panel 'Travel Wisdom From Our 50+' is the perfect punctuation, getting insight from our seasoned travelers on life and lessons while abroad.
#NMDN curates a mix of panels and workshops that bridge travel + diversity + creativity. Whether your objective was to learn how to turn your travels into income generation, get yourself on the map as a traveling artist, or navigate dating as a nomad, we had something for you in 2015.
