Joining our conference for a keynote address as well as two additional follow-up sessions, Mikah Meyer will bring his story of adventure to attendees. He is certain to inspire us to live "beyond convention"!
Adventurer Mikah Meyer has been named a Social Media Warrior by MTV and featured by NPR, The Guardian, Upworthy, and The Today Show among thousands of global media outlets for his Travel Beyond Convention.
Meyers 3-year, world record road trip to every National Park Service site made him the first to experience all 419 United States federal parks in a single journey.
The project garnered over $10 million in earned media, bestowed Mikah superlatives ranging from "Best #VanLife Instagram" by Uproxx to "Sexy Travel Guru" by GayCities, and broke down barriers with LGBT-inclusive marketing in the outdoors recreation industry.
His work was recognized by NBC during 2019s World Pride as one of their #Pride50 honorees alongside innovators like James Baldwin and Marsha P. Johnson. Meyer has spoken over 150 times for colleges in Nebraska to corporations in New Zealand, created content for brands ranging from Eddie Bauer to the American Samoa Visitor Bureau, and written for the likes of Outside Magazine, SB Nation, and the Wilderness Society.
With an adventure ethos inspired by the loss of his road-trip-loving father to cancer, Mikah not only uses travel to change the world in groundbreaking ways, but to inspire audiences to live "beyond convention."
