05/05/2021 1:00 pm

We are delighted to invite you to join us for our next event What the Family wants from post-pandemic Travel” on Wednesday, 05 May, from 1-2pm with Andrew Dent Founder of Family Traveller, Ed Grenby Chief Content and Strategy Officer at Family Traveller, and Katie Bowman Editor of Family Traveller.
Andrew and his team will discuss the changing attitudes of family travel post-pandemic with bespoke research you’ll see for the very first time. We’ll hear about multi-generational travel, the time with loved ones as a precious commodity, the education to kids that travel brings through the engagement with local experiences and communities around the world and the importance of sustainability in family travel choices. Join us to get the debate going as we hear how families now want to travel. 

Andrew Dent 

Andrew Dent has a 25 year career working in marketing and media for some of the biggest brands in the world.
 
He spent 7 years as CMO for the world famous department store Harrods, in London. After Harrods he went to work for Rupert Murdoch as Head of Marketing for his UK newspapers. Having seen a void in quality media platforms that focused on family centric travel, he set up Family Traveller and over the last 7 years he has worked with many of the world’s top destinations, attractions, hotels and lifestyle brands in the UK, Germany and USA, with more territories coming online in the next 6 months.  Andrew is currently relaunching with a new editorial team concentrating on specifically high value family bookings.  
 
Ed Grenby
 
Ed Grenby is currently Chief Content and Strategy Officer at Family Traveller, but has been writing about travel for two decades. During that time, he’s stayed everywhere from Prince Charles’s house to a Nepali yak pen, while somehow also finding time to pick up five Editor of the Year awards for his work at The Sunday Times Travel Magazine. He has recently joined the executive team at Family Traveller to manage global content.
 
Katie Bowman
 
Katie is Editor of Family Traveller, and was formerly on the launch team of The Sunday Times Travel Magazine, which took her around the globe for the next two decades. She’s most often asked her favourite destination in the world: the US. And her least favourite? Senegal (but only because she got dysentery).
