Travel & Words attendees have plenty of opportunities to build productive relationships at the conference.
First, a Welcome Reception on Sunday evening, April 22, will help everyone informally get acquainted over appetizers and beverages.
Second, Yakima Valley Tourism will host a Networking Mixer on Monday evening, April 23, complete with hearty appetizers and local wines and beers from the Yakima 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.
