Travel & Words attendees have plenty of opportunities to build productive relationships at the conference.
First, a Welcome Reception on Sunday evening, April 23, will help everyone informally get acquainted over appetizers and beverages.
Second, Travel Salem will host a Networking Mixer on Monday evening, April 24 at the Salem Convention Center, complete with hearty appetizers and local wines and beers from the mid-Willamette Valley region.
Last, sit-down lunches on Monday and Tuesday give everyone a chance to meet conference planners, presenters, editors and destination marketers. Morning and afternoon breaks are intentionally designed to allow writers and bloggers to visit the exhibit booths and gather story ideas about Northwest destinations.
