As one of travel’s most influential media figures, Claire brings a wealth of experience from her current position at the helm of The Times and The Sunday Times travel pages, her previous role as Head of Travel at The Telegraph, and her background as one of the UK’s leading magazine editors. A frequent guest on TV and radio, we are thrilled to welcome her to this in-depth one-to-one session for TravMedia Meets.

Henry Hemming (Moderator)

Global Managing Director


Henry’s an entrepreneur who’s about to hit a milestone 40 years in travel, his first day in travel PR dating back to June 1984. Following seven years as a travel writer he created a travel PR company that’s since evolved into a successful multi-sector agency. 
He launched TravMedia UK in 2003, as a joint venture with the site’s CEO and founder Nick Wayland, helping to establish a leading UK and global community for travel journalists and PR professionals. In 2013, TravMedia UK launched IMM, which quickly became the premier global annual event for media to meet travel brands.
TravMedia’s sister company, News4Media, of which Henry is owner and CEO, runs Property4Media and Homes4Media, dedicated portals that connect media with brands and maximize PR campaign results for their subscribers.

Henry lives in East Sussex, is a keen photographer, nature lover and ardent Beatles fan (yeah, yeah, yeah).

To understand the likely future shape of travel editorial across The Times and The Sunday Times’ print and online content – and across the wider media – come and hear the view from the top as we welcome Claire Irvin on TravMedia Meets.
