It’s no secret that social media has shaped many industries and influences how businesses interact with their customers.  After working in the Tourism industry for the past five years, I’ve learned a thing or two when it comes to engaging with people about travel. I was recently invited by Hootsuite to share my knowledge on this topic during a live online panel and Twitter chat on “Social Media For Tourism”.

Joining experts from Contiki Holidays and VancouverIsAwesome.com, we talked about the current trends in Social Media, how to effectively use social media to drive people to your destination — all while engaging on social media with current tourists.

 

Watch the recap below and feel free to join the discussion on Twitter using the Hashtag #Social60
