Related Upcoming Event - Destination Accelerator

Hello Travel 2.0-ers!

I hope everyone got the update I sent out yesterday containing links to the video and slideshow of Herb Moore's presentation last week. I tried a new method of sending the message to the group and it went out with the subject "Travel 2.0 Mailing List Daily Digest" which it was not supposed to do. I am not liking the messaging system... Anyway, I'll send it out again because it seems that a lot of people did not see it.

But for now, I wanted to let everyone know about a relevant event coming up on February 26th that you might be interested in. One of our good friends, Roni Weiss, runs Destination Accelerator, an organization that describes itself as follows:

“Through in-person programs and online conferences, Destination Accelerator assembles in one place and at one time a panel of experts to ask and answer key questions that help destination marketing professionals explore new and effective ways to attract and engage today’s travelers.”

For anyone interested in destination marketing, and particularly startups and media companies that work in the space, this event could be highly enlightening. Below are some more details from Roni. I may see you there!

Hi, Travel 2.0!

Destination Accelerator is proud to announce that its second conference will be held in NYC on Tuesday, February 26th, 2013. We think our program and included offers from PhoCusWright will be of great use to you. As a travel startup, knowing the latest trends and being able to speak directly with important people in the industry is a great way to give your company a leg up. Through our panels filled out by industry thought leaders (see below), you’ll be up to speed on what’s happening in the industry and able to ask questions of the people who help move it.

Testimonial from our September conference:

"Destination Accelerator provided a necessary venue for today's travel marketeer. The wealth of information from expert panelists and notable attendees made for a terrific networking opportunity." - Michelle Blackley, Communications Manager of Niagara Tourism & Convention Corporation
