Hear from first-class explorers, daredevils and pioneers as they share their captivating stories of exploration, escapism and wonder at this sell-out event. Each speaker will be limited to just 20 slides to accompany their tales, shown on a huge screen, each slide leaving the screen after just 20 seconds. It’s fast. It’s furious. But ultimately, it’s a chance to be swept away to a world filled with adventure, all without leaving your seats.

With this unusual and challenging presentation format, once the talks begin there is no stopping or going back, the audience must be ready to be swept from adventure to adventure!
