EyeforTravel's 5th Annual Social Media and Mobile Strategies for Travel was the most valuable conference I've attended in recent years. The format featuring numerous speakers from the travel industry provides a wealth of best practices, success stories and inspiration that I can apply immediately to our business.
Jane Jess, Regional Director - Sales & Marketing, Westcorp Properties Inc.
Social Media and Mobile Strategies is not like most conferences made up of consultants and hypotheticals. It's an event for anyone who wants to engage in discussions about real world examples and learnings.
Gregg Tilston, Global Social Media Manager, Flight Centre Limited
The EyeforTravel Social Media conference never disappoints. The speakers are engaged and more than willing to share their personal triumphs and challenges. The practical examples are invaluable. I would recommend this conference to anyone looking to pursue social media for their organization.
Amber Robinson, Director - Marketing Communications, TU Group
This is one time a year I get to submerge myself in Social Media and Mobile Marketing. It does (2) things. 1) I receive confirmation that we are on the right track and (2) keeps me grounded in the big picture of Digital Marketing. “
Susanne Smith, Director - Marketing, Garden Court Hotel
Eye for Travel strategy conferences is a must for any destination, operator or brand that wants an 'edge' on the competition.
Casandra Morris, eBusiness & Market Research Manager, Cayman Islands Department of Tourism
Immensely valuable to me as the Sales & Marketing Director for a small property management company with few staff members. I now understand what it will take to build a successful, engaging social media program and have added some priceless tools to the limited resources available to me. Case studies by so many of the presenters were fascinating and dead on with exactly what I was looking for! I truly feel "I Get It" now...Thanks for a great program! Hope to join again next year!
