Travel Social Media and Digital Marketing Conferences 2020 – 2021 Blog

A couple of month’s ago, TravelMedia.ie’s Michael Collins and Bronagh McNamara created the Travel Social Media and Digital Marketing Conferences 2020-2021 blog alongside freelance travel journalist and blogger Alastair McKenzie. The blog was created to provide dates and descriptions of conferences that we feel are of particular interest to the travel industry. The blog proved to be very popular and helpful to many in the industry. This month, we’ve updated the blog to ensure it is as comprehensive as possible. Check it out for yourself here.
