Advantage Travel Partnership has announced that TV personality Jerry Springer will be the keynote speaker at its 2018 conference, being held in Miami from 10-13 May.

Springer’s career spans a number of roles, the most famous of which is as the host of his eponymous talk show for 27 seasons. He has also been a lawyer, the mayor of Cincinnati, a newscaster, Broadway actor, executive producer, ballroom dancer, and more.

Advantage Travel Partnership MD Julia Lo Bue-Said says Springer was chosen in relation to the event’s theme. “Our conference theme focuses on building a story and how to effectively communicate this narrative with audiences, and Jerry’s career and experience is a perfect example of how best to achieve this. His exuberant personality adds an exciting dimension to the conference and will give our members a new perspective.”

The Advantage Conference 2018 will feature both leisure and business travel programmes with plenary sessions, keynote speakers, workshops and networking opportunities. Find out more at
