#MeetSouthAfrica. – The ever evolving world of travel blogging is one I’m lucky enough to live and work in, it’s also one that brings many questions to the fore.
The INDABA Travel Bloggers’ Conference (#ITBC15) is one of the many events leading up to INDABA, giving players in the travel trade the opportunity to learn how blogging and interaction with travel bloggers can enhance their businesses as we unpack the changing face of destination marketing and the importance of personalised, user-generated content and social media engagement and its impact for the tourism trade.
The conference will take place on 8 May 2015 (the eve of INDABA), will be attended by local and international bloggers.
I’m very excited to be invited to speak there in the company of some of my most respected blogger friends, speaking about conscious travel and the things that make what we do extraordinary.
