The expo series is run by adventure travel experts!
We have travelled extensively ourselves and realise how life changing and important travel is...
Director and CEO, Andrew Paltridge has 20 years of Travel Industry Experience.
After completing a Bachelor of Business, Andrew worked for a major oil company in a marketing role.
The lure of overseas travel proved too great though, and so with backpack in tow in 1989, he headed to Europe. After much independent travel, Andrew decided that life as a tour manager running and organising tours would be fun, plus it would enable him to see more of the world whilst working.
After 4 years of running tours for others, Andrew decided to run his own tours, and with 2 other partners he organised tours from London to Morocco and from London to Nepal (and back!) in a converted London double-decker bus called Hannibal!
Returning to Australia, Andrew worked for 10 years for international tour operator Connections Adventures, as National Sales and Marketing Manager where he was in charge of all sales and marketing for Australia and New Zealand. He set up his own company, Adventure & Travel Marketing in 2004. Andrew sits on the executive board (and also hold the position of Treasurer) of the key adventure travel industry body in Queensland, Adventure Queensland.
Andrew lives with his wife and children on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia.
