Uwern Jong is Experientialist®-in-Chief and co-founder at OutThere magazine, a multi-award luxury and experiential media brand rooted in its brand values of diversity, discovery and discernment. A luxury travel expert, hotel aficionado and inclusive and intersectional tourism advocate, Uwern was recently awarded by the Travel Trade Gazette (TTG) as Travel Trailblazer of the Year and by Walpole (the association of British luxury brands) as one of the top 50 most influential people in British luxury.

I believe in a much more diverse, equitable, accessible and inclusive travel and hospitality industry and IWTTF is an amazing platform to do so. Through allyship and collaboration, we will change the industry and the world.
