Hey y’all. I’m just passing along the word about an upcoming seminar where I’ve been asked to sit as a member of a “panel comprising three accommodation providers and three highly influential bloggers from a spectrum of the hospitality industry.” With a theme of “Clearing up the Mystery of Blogging,” the event is being organised by the Hotel Marketing Association, a branch of the Chartered Institute of Marketing, in partnership with Traverse Connect. It will be held the evening of 17 June in the York Suite of the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington.
I’m honoured to have been considered for the panel and am looking forward to the chance to wag my chin talking about hotels and travel from a blogger’s perspective. Also, I’m chuffed to see another confirmed panellist is Ernest Opoku, Digital Marketer at Generator Hostels. He’s a swell fella, and I’ve recently become a big fan of Generator.
Aimed at an audience of bloggers, social media specialists, hospitality marketers and operators “who understand the importance of social media in matters relating to reputation management, promotion, consumer purchasing behaviour and the evolving service culture,” the seminar’s focus will be “experiences, case studies, pitfalls, best practice and how best to develop relationships for your specific marketing needs.” Following the panel discussion, there will be an opportunity to network.
