2015 WIT Summit Boston And A Giveaway
This years Women in Travel Summit was held in the great city of Boston. WIT Summit is a conference for women travelers, travel bloggers, and travel professionals. It is a fun-filled weekend with networking, eating and drinking, and making new travel buddies.
(There is an awesome giveaway at the bottom of the post, make sure you sign up!!!)
My favorites from this weekend included connecting with some Iowa travel bloggers a the conference, having my roommate that I have never met be super-awesome, the On Location Boston movie tour, a fun opening night party, and getting fancy drinks at Liquid Art House.
Here I am checking out some conference swag from Delsay:
My restaurant choices did not meet expectations which is a shame. Next time, Boston, next time.
The point of the WIT Summit is to learn about what interests you. I learned a lot about the technical aspects of blogging from Melissa of Suitcase and Heels and Brooke of Yoga Travel Tree and excellent writing tips from Theresa of Tremendous Times. These are smart women who really know their stuff. If you are new to travel blogging or blogging in general, attending a conference as well run as this one is a great idea.
If your travel bug is not out in full-force before the conference starts it will be by the end. About 25% of the bloggers in the room are completely nomadic and travel full-time. Another handful are full-time bloggers but the vast majority blog as a hobby or as a second job. Everyone though, is excited about travel. One of my favorite topics with fellow attendees is what their favorite place is and where they are going next. Uh-oh, my bucket list just got longer!
My stylish new carry-on:
GIVEAWAY ALERT!!!! The swag this year was out of control. Every conference attendee received an amazing carry-on bag from Samsonite Luggage. It is super-cute and very functional (and retails for $160).
Also, you will get a copy of Top 10 Boston from Eyewitness Travel, DVDs of Good Will Hunting and American Hustle, and an organizer from We Travel Far.
But even better than that is my giveaway today! Two chances to win: 1) Like me on Facebook if you haven’t already (click here). and 2) Please post a comment about your favorite travel destination, travel memory, or favorite travel accessory. I’ll have the random number generator pick a winner which I’ll announce on Monday!!!
