Scooping up ideas for you at Travel Media Showcase
I wanted to let my readers know that I was accepted to attend the September 2008 Travel Media Showcase conference as a journalist. The chance to make lots of travel-related contacts there means more opportunities for me to learn about and visit places for the Family Travel blog.
There is a selection process for TMS journalists and travel publications to ensure a good mix of first-time and previous attendees, across a spectrum of travel writing, both in print and online. I’m looking forward to seeing lots of fellow travel writers, like the Traveling Mamas, folks from the new planning site TravelMuse, representatives from Smarter Travel and Budget Travel, editors from Education.com and CHOW.com and Tim Leffel, author of World’s Cheapest Destinations and my editor at the Perceptive Travel blog.
Our schedule of events includes various receptions, familiarization tours around Kansas City (the host city) and many appointments with representatives from Convention and Visitor’s Bureaus and tourism offices from around the world.
I’m looking forward to it!
