New York Travel Festival & Social Media Influence
Later this month (18-19 April) the New York Travel Festival (#NYTF) gets underway with a wide ranging programme of events designed for travellers, travel writers, and travel industry.
So, this in week's edition the plan is to talk with +Roni Weiss (google.com/+roniweiss
), the founder & organiser of NYTF, about the festival itself, AND to get the ball rolling with the kind of discussion that will be taking place during the festival, in this case about Travel and the Impact of Social Media Influencers/Marketers
So, we'll be joined by a number of guests who have views on on the topic, some of whom will be appearing as speakers at NYTF, and I'll be confirming those speakers on the event page over the next few days, but the first three are...
Ethan Gelber - Co-organiser of NYFT, editor of The Travel Word (responsible/sustainable travel).
Melvin Böcher - Owner of Traveldudes.org and co-founder iAmbassador (travel blogger collective).
Matthew Barker - Digital marketer & founder I&I Travel Media (digital travel marketing).
The best place to watch the hangout is here on the G+ event page, because then you can use the Q&A app (top right of video screen) to ask questions before & during the hangout.
