I am excited to say in a little over a month I have the opportunity head south to Dallas for the Family Travel Conference 2012.
Unlike many of my fellow TMOM bloggers and other bloggers, this will be my first “travel” conference that I get to attend. I still feel like I am a little fish in a great big pond, but I am very excited to get the inside tips from a few of the experts.
I have attended a few blogger conferences over the past couple of years and this is what I find most helpful about attending conferences.
Connections- I get the opportunity to meet, greet, and learn from blogging experts, sort of like going to a medical conference and learning from the top neurosurgeon.
Inside Tips- at the #FTCDallas conference I personally am excited to hear Christi McNeill the spokesperson for Southwest Airlines speak. Christi controls Southwest Airlines social networking and blogging and if you have not clicked over to their pages I encourage you she does an amazing job.
Learn- at conferences, you get the chance to learn better ways to make your blog or website a success. You learn tips like which tweets are tweets worth retweeting, how captivate your audience, and how to use the equipment you have, but use it better.
Fun times- okay so you all have seen some of the crazy photos I tweet out of myself on regular basis, now imagine a whole room full of goofballs like me. I am excited to get to hang with my fellow #TMOM’s and many other like-minded travel gurus’
The Family Travel Conference in Dallas is held November 9-11 2012, registration is available here, and you can check out their website for more details and a complete list of speakers, workshops, and planned events.
Have a FUN Day,
