Three leading executives from publishing giant Hearst UK will appear at Travel Weekly’s Future of Travel Week event to discuss consumer trends and habits since the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The speakers will also offer insight into their audiences and how Hearst is working with the travel industry across its portfolio of brands which include Esquire, ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan and Good Housekeeping.

The three speakers are Jacqueline Euwe, chief luxury officer; Amy Grier, executive editor (print), Cosmopolitan; and Gaby Huddart, group editorial director, Lifestyle & Homes.

Also confirmed for the event, which takes place in partnership with Google from September 14-18, is Chris Photi, head of travel and leisure at White Hart Associates, who will assess the future of travel regulation in one of the week’s keynote addresses.

Lucy Huxley, editor-in-chief of Travel Weekly, said: “Over the past two years we have worked closely with Hearst UK on a number of projects, including our flagship Globe Travel Awards and a series of insightful lunches and dinners.

“We are delighted that these three outstanding contributors will join us to identify key consumer trends and discuss how the UK’s leading lifestyle publisher views the travel sector in a post-pandemic environment.”

She added: “We are also incredibly grateful to Chris Photi for agreeing to join us to discuss travel regulation after his frank and passionate presentation at last year’s Future of Travel Selling Conference, which won plaudits from all attendees.”

The newly-announced contributors join a stellar line-up of previously announced speakers, including easyJet chief executive Johan Lundgren; Carnival Corporation chief executive Arnold Donald; Hays Travel owners John and Irene Hays; Jet2 chief executive Steve Heapy, Abta chairman Alistair Rowland and Jacobs Media Group chairman Clive Jacobs.
