A FORMER Business student from the University of Portsmouth has been listed as a young travel star – by an industry leading travel publication.
Nathan Cable, the co-founder of Party Hard Travel, has been named as one of 30 young travel stars by Travel Trade Gazette.
Party Hard Travel was set up by Nathan and fellow Portsmouth University graduate, Barry Moore – which they did immediately after graduation.
Nathan was invited to join the fifth year of the magazine’s scheme, Tomorrow’s Travel Leaders, an initiative which shines the spotlight on the travel industry’s most inspiring young people who have made an outstanding contribution to their business.
As part of the final 30, Nathan will receive free membership to the Institute of Travel and Tourism, and will be invited to a series of networking dinners and events, with speakers drawn from the most senior levels within travel.
Daniel Pearce, managing director for TTG Media, said: ‘There are countless networking events in travel, but there aren’t many opportunities for the younger stars in the business to meet, to network and to be inspired by some of travel’s current leaders.’
Nathan added: ‘a great honour to have been selected in this prestigious list and I aim to make the most of all the opportunities which the scheme brings.
‘My business partner, Barry Moore, and I, have worked extremely hard over the past few years to build up a reputable business and I hope this can inspire any one reading that if you put your mind to something and put in lots of hard work, anything is possible.
‘We will be launching our very own Party Hard Travel booking platform in the coming months, which will enable travel agencies across the country to book customers on Party Hard holiday packages.
‘Exposure through the TTG scheme will help amplify our message to the whole travel industry.’
