Points of Difference Events was founded in 2008 by Adam Bold, out of a desire to create quality social occasions & opportunities in the events and travel markets for the LGBT+ community, and their friends.
Adam and his team have a wide range of experience in Australia and overseas. In addition to the range of activities producing events for PoDE, external events worked on in recent years include Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, Gay Ski Week NZ, Frisky, Toybox, Playbox, Apollo and Ruby parties and various corporate and stunning private events.
Becoming an affiliate partner with Savenio Travel in 2016, one of Australia’s foremost luxury boutique travel business, the company now offers amazing total travel solutions, with a focus on the LGBT market and luxury travel. The company also supports a small number of corporate clients. Using the combined expertise of both organisations, a number of hosted tours are now offered, with more exciting projects being developed. In recognising the strength of the new travel offerings, in mid-2016 the company updated our trading name to Points of Difference Travel & Events, to better align our services in this space. Savenio is also a proud Virtuoso Member agency, which allows Points of Difference Travel & Events to now offer this exciting portfolio of quality and luxury travel services.
Our vision is to create and discover legendary, exciting and memorable events, tour and travel experiences, with a touch of sophistication.
We do this by the development, creation and sourcing of the best products, suppliers and venues to work with. We add a fabulous gay layer to their standards.
We have a focus on the LGBT+ and luxury markets; if it’s good enough for the gay’s it’s good enough for all our clients.
Our guests experience safe, welcoming and fun environments for like-minded people, both locally and internationally, where strangers become friends.
We create happiness through the connection and engagement of our guests. We work to develop our tribe and love to share these stories of connection and community.
We bring the smiles.
