Sam Buffie is the Lead Event Planner at Roadtrips. As someone with a huge love of travel, she’s built a career around her passion. Sam has been in the travel industry for 20 years and has enjoyed roles in planning, hosting, and writing about travel events around the globe.
Born and raised in Canada, Sam joined the travel industry in 1998 working on Superyachts in the Mediterranean. In 2003, she joined Great Canadian Travel in her hometown of Winnipeg, where her focus was on travel closer to home. She spent 8 years managing and growing a popular Canada travel product that included polar bear tours and an extensive program across the country. Sam joined Roadtrips in 2013 following a three-year period living in London over the 2012 Summer Games. As one of Roadtrips' most travelled and experienced hosts, she’s attended a long list of international sporting events, including the Super Bowl, the soccer World Cup, and both the Summer and Winter Games.
Despite spending a large portion of the year on the road for Roadtrips, both as a host and scouting out new destinations, Sam still harbors a deep love of travel. She spends much of her free time traveling “for fun” and lists Egypt, the United Kingdom, Brazil and Russia as some of her most memorable travel experiences. She feels fortunate to have the opportunity to help others experience all the incredible destinations and sporting events around the world.
