PANEL: Working with a CVB After Your Trip to Develop a Long-Term Relationship

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

So you've secured a trip to cover a destination, but how do you dive deeper in your relationship with the tourism board or Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB)? This panel will cover what influencers can do to keep the relationship going, the best ways to stay in touch, and how to be considered for future opportunities.

Tourism boards and CVBs are also always looking for freelancers to create content for them such as visitors guides, blog posts, and more -- but it is often up to you to move the conversation forward. This session will give you insight into what CVBs are looking for in establishing long-term relationships, measuring success, and developing a team of freelancers, and how that will add more clout for your business as a travel writer, as well as lead to additional income for your business.

What you can expect to learn:
  • What are some different options for working with a CVB/tourism board after a press trip?
  • How can you nurture your ongoing relationship with a CVB?
  • What are CVBs and tourism boards looking for when working with influencers?
  • How can creating content for a CVB help your brand image?
