Welcome to my initial contribution to the blogosphere. Earlier this month, I had the good fortune to be able to attend Expo! Expo! in Atlanta, Georgia. While there, I was able to meet several folks that I only knew from their activities on Twitter or Facebook and it was nice to be able to match the name with a real human being! Many of you encouraged (some rather strongly) that I should start blogging in addition to my activities on Twitter and some of the other event-related social media sites.
So, what will we talk about here? For starters, we’ll talk trade shows, meetings, exhibitions, conventions and events. Then we can toss in some topics on tourism, venues, hospitality, associations, destination marketing and some social media for good measure. That’s a pretty good list, isn’t it?
But wait, there’s more…. All work and no play can make for a dull blog. From time to time, I’ll toss in a few humorous items. Expect to see a few Baltimore or Maryland related posts from time to time. Maybe a music video now and then, although that can be dangerous given my eclectic tastes.
Now, it’s time for the disclaimer. This is my personal blog and has no connection to any of my employers. Any opinions that I may express are solely mine and may not represent the viewpoints of my employers.
