How are you currently involved in the travel industry? Please be specific. Travel Massive is a group for professionals working for either a travel-related company or writing about travel.

I have been writing about travel for a couple of decades, including as a Lonely Planet author. Currently, I manage media and communications for the WHL Group (, the largest local-travel company in the world. I also oversee The Travel Word (, a travel blog that spotlights responsible, sustainable and local travel; and the Local Travel Movement (, a blog platform for 100-plus local travel partners.

Please state the organization, business or company name where you work. If this is not included, your application will not be approved.

I'm back in my native NYC after almost a decade away. Lots of people, places and things to rediscover, especially in the travel industry. Sooooo much has changed since the days of paper and pens.

What Ethan G. is saying about this Meetup Group

Travel Massive is an awesome idea (as was its earlier Travel Tribes), but, again, this was just a bit too big. The best such events I have attended (in Sydney, London) were smaller or structured, which made it easier to meet and chat with people.
