The #1 Event For Smarter, Safer Travel

What is Travel Smart Bootcamp?

Since starting Travel Safer, I’ve wanted to create an annual conference that would serve as the catalyst to easily build strategies, relationships, and the expertise needed to improve the way business travelers, study abroad students, families, couples and solo adventurers travel.

The Travel Smart Bootcamp will bring together all types of travelers for a journey through optimizing every point of their travel process.
