About Traverse 18

Weekend of 26 and 27 May 2018

So what can you expect from Traverse 18?

All platforms, all niches, all levels

It’s been a long time since Traverse has been considered an event for UK travel bloggers. The conference caters for everyone from new parenting bloggers to the highest level of fashion YouTubers, and we have no intention of changing that.


Workshops, classes, courses, talks and more at Traverse 18 will be aimed at all levels of influencers, with the sessions ranging from small niche talks right up to general business management.

Local event, international appeal

Those that have been Rotterdam before will know all about how fantastic the area is, this is something we’re determined to show case to every single attendee next year. The midweek events (which we debuted in London this April) will take you all over the city and introduce you to the local culture, food, drinks and of course the people that make this city so special.

Traverse 18 will be a truly international affair with influencers, brands, agencies and destinations from all four corners of the globe descend on Rotterdam.

The sessions will be diverse and suited to the international attendees and attending sponsors will be in attendance to connect and engage with attendees.

As an influencer you’ll make new friends, reconnect with old ones and find some incredible travel inspiration along the way.

A travel theme

As Traverse has evolved, we’ve often struggled to really put into words what our connection to the travel industry is. Those who attend Traverse know what we do and how we have the travel twist, despite the sessions being aimed at everyone. The best we can say is that there is a ‘travel theme’ running through what we do.


We focus on travel campaigns outside of events and are lucky enough to work with some of the world’s top travel influencers, brands and destinations, this is well reflected in our conferences.

Perfect for industry

With hundreds of attendees from around the world, Traverse is the perfect event for the industry attendees.


We aim to create a relaxed event environment where everyone is welcoming and friendly, we know from our own experiences how important it is to be able to network and making real life connections.

What's New For 2018?

So what’s the format?

While we can share some details of the format with you right now, we are planning some special and innovative additions for the 2018 event.

Keep an eye on our social channels, emails and website for more details in the coming months.


What we are able to tell you now is that the format from Traverse 17 in London will remain in the most part, with midweek events free for all attendees plus a two day conference and three large social events.

The conference will again be a mix of sessions from tiny niche master classes right up to panels for hundreds of attendees. We’ll be announcing speakers in due course as well as more details of the timings and specifics of the event.


As usual, there will be sessions suitable for the newest of influencer all the way up to the most established. We’ll continue to focus on innovative topics right at the cutting edge of the digital influencer industry.

How do I get there?

Rotterdam is a super accessible city with a range of travel options. There is a local airport with flights from many neighbouring countries as well as a cheap and quick train from Amsterdam for those flying intercontinental.


Of course, for those from Europe there are also trains that serve the city and with one of the world’s busiest ports, there are also ferries from other parts of the continent.


We’ll soon have more information out about travel to Rotterdam and will be tweeting flight and train deals and sales when they come up.

It’s a load of fun!

Although we’re strong believers in continuously improving and blostering your own skills, we also know how important it is to make connections with people. We strive to create a fun and sociable environment with our evening events to help you get the most out of Traverse 18 and have fun in Rotterdam.
