One of the most rewarding endeavors I’ve undertaken in my media career is chairing the Travel & Words Conference. Witnessing the connections that spark between travel writers and destination marketers is inspiring. And seeing the end result—a well-written published article by one of the writers in attendance about a destination exhibited at Travel & Words—is the ultimate reward.
The Travel & Words Conference is entirely planned and produced by a dedicated team of volunteers. They are travel writers, editors and destination marketers who donate their time and talent to produce one of the best travel writers’ conferences in North America. I expect the 2017 conference in Salem to be the best in nearly a decade of conferences.
