Will there be networking opportunities with brands and tourism boards?
Yes! You'll be able to make appointments through our networking software. We will have meetings throughout the event.
I'm new to blogging. Is this event for me?
Yes! We have beginner tracks designed to help those getting started avoid the rookie mistakes that keep people from reaching their potential. At this conference, you'll be able to learn from experts who have been doing this for years and will teach you the right way to grow your business. This is the best place to learn where to start.
I've been blogging for years, is this for me?
Heck yes! We've created an advance track for people who have been a creator for awhile so they can take the next step and learn the advanced skills needed to 10x their website. You'll get high-level talks on monetization, SEO, product creation, conversion, writing, newsletters, and more, that will help you stay at the forefront of the industry and keep your website growing.
Can I be a volunteer?
We're currently have enough volunteers. Thank you for your inquiry.
Are you taking applications for speakers?
We don't accept speaker applications. With thousands of people in the industry, we simply can't keep up the volume of emails we get from people asking to be a speaker. If you email us to be a speaker, we will delete your email.
Will the conference be live streamed?
No, but we have a virtual ticket available where you can view all the talks online once the event is over!
Why is this conference priced higher than other similar travel events?
At TravelCon, we believe no one should work for free...and we practice what we preach. We pay all our speakers. As such, ticket prices reflect that higher overhead cost. So, while the ticket price is higher, you know your favorite creators, writers, and experts have been compensated for their time! After all, "exposure" doesn't pay the rent!
How long will the sessions be?
The keynote speeches, talks, and panel discussions will each be about an hour long.
Will there be an media marketplace?
Yes, we will have an expo hall that will feature our sponsoring tourism boards, PR firms, travel brands, and other tech companies.
