In an ongoing effort to share our knowledge and experience with the travel and tourism industry, I’ll be attending and presenting at the International Hotel, Motel & Restaurant Show in New York City in November. Along with the incredibly smart Peter Yesawich, Jr. and the equally talented Krista Parry from Park City Mountain Resort, (unfortunately Mo Sherifdeen from Travel Oregon won’t be able to join us, though he’ll be there in spirit) we’ll be talking about:
“From Clicks to Packed Bags – Converting Online Interaction into Taking Trips”
Here’s the summary of what we’ll cover: Between travel websites, travel review sites, social networks, and a wealth of online information, how do travelers make decisions on where to go and what to do? More importantly, what can you do to influence their travel/tourism decisions? Learn about current and future trends for how and why people will interact with your brand online, and how to turn this interaction into taking trips.
Not being ones to typically follow the rules, I’m not quite sure how we’ll be presenting all this. Probably something interactive, educational and engaging. Inter-edu-gaging.
Hope to see you there, and if you’re planning on attending and have something you’d like us to cover, leave it in the comments.
