Travel Coffee Break #157 - New York Travel Festival & Social Media Influence

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

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, in this week's edition, the plan is to talk with Roni Weiss, 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, starting with...

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). Don't forget you can use the Q&A app (top right of video screen on the hangout event page) to ask questions before & during the hangout.
