CLEARING UP THE MYSTERY OF BLOGGING 17TH JUNE
Last May, the HMA hosted a lively panel which debated the future of PR in the digital age and how the PR industry is adapting to a new way of working in the current world of instant communication.
This June, we will be delving more specifically into the world of blogging and the dramatic influence that bloggers are having within the hotel and hospitality sector. Undeniably, bloggers can play a key part in expanding your brand and product awareness. Unique and engaging content can be delivered to hot new business prospects and potential customers via this ever-changing communicaton channel. However, with many bloggers covering almost all travel niches, it can be a challenge to know who to work with, how to contact and communicate with them and who will actually deliver the goods.
A panel comprising three accommodation providers and three highly influential bloggers from a spectrum of the hospitality industry. Discussion will focus on experiences, case studies, pitfalls, best practice and how best to develop relationships for your specific marketing needs. Following the debate, bloggers can have the chance to meet with hoteliers and marketers to network and explore opportunities of working together. The HMA has partnered with blogger community Traverse for this event.
