To bring each issue to life, we're introducing EIGHTY Live at &co., a monthly fireside chat series featuring local luminaries.
Entering the travel space for your line of work is not always as cool as you might think. After all, work is work no matter the industry you're in. But the perks for working in travel are often as incredible as travel itself.
Following the release of The Escape Issue, we've invited Jeremy Viray, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group's Director of Communications, to tell us what makes working in travel a very attractive choice for young professionals and how he transformed his interest in travel into his livelihood.
Have your pen and paper handy for insider tips and travel hacks like why you need to turn on "Private Browsing" when searching for cheap flights online and how to pack light.
