  • Bon Voyage: Travel the world with your blog or podcast

    by Becky McCray, Mark Tafoya and Sheila Scarborough

    In the early days of New Media, the legendary “fam trip” (free travel to destinations interested in media coverage), was an elusive prize, available only to traditional journalists from huge national media outlets. In the ever changing environment of social media, destinations are now courting bloggers and podcasters, even those outside of the travel field!

    Chef Mark Tafoya and Jennifer Iannolo of Culinary Media Network will share with you how they started out taking advantage of these trips for cultural and culinary exploration, and after nearly two dozen fam trips, built a whole new type of business model.

    Becky McCray and Sheila Scarborough of Tourism Currents will share from the perspective of destinations courting media attention, and share with you how to make yourself attractive to a destination or business eager to invite you on a trip.

    Key Points
    1. Learn how you can travel to destinations worldwide for free
    2. Learn how to travel smartly & lightly, and still get tons of great content for your blog, podcast, or video series
    3. Know how to evaluate yourself the way a destination would evaluate you.
