Beyond is set to take place at the Royal Geographical Society on 17 and 18 September and will include Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Chris Packham, Monty Halls, Charlie Mayhew and Saba Douglas-Hamilton as speakers.
Alongside 16 speaker events, there will be a panel discussion around conservation chaired by Charlie Mayhew featuring conservationist Colin Bell, Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust’s Andrew Terry and Professor David Macdonald of WildCRU.
Other highlights will include workshops on photography and filming, a working sculpture studio and art exhibitions.
Cultural Communications’ brief includes initiating and managing partnerships with high-end brands.
Steppes Travel MD Justin Wateridge said: “Beyond is designed to be different. It’s a showcase of some of the world’s greatest adventurers, explorers and conservationists who share a passion for travel and the issues that surround it.
“We want to shine a light on these locally and globally. Cultural Comms stood out to us as connected to the prospects that will make a big difference to the festival.”
