Travel Tweet-up – WTM special

October 16, 2009


We’ve mentioned this already, but here are a few more details about how to get involved… and Flagship Consulting are organising a third “Travel Tweet-up” on Monday, November 9, 2009, to coincide with World Travel Market this year.

Here’s the details…

  • Where: TBC, but in Bank area of central London
  • When: Monday, November 9, 2009 from 7pm
  • What’s on: As well as networking, and sharing social media tips, there will be a £100 Expedia prize draw and a (limited) free bar
  • Facebook: Click here to access the FaceBook fan page
  • Hashtags: Add #WTM and #travtweetup to your tweets
  • Pics: To automatically publish your  tweet-up photos, email them to
  • Who to contact: For more info, email, or get in touch via Twitter at @Matt_Parsons. Alternatively, drop Lewis Shields an email at, or via Twitter at @LewisShields
  • Expedia prize! Business card draw, and chance to win £100 to spend at

What is a tweet-up?
It’s an informal event where you meet up with the people you usually only converse with in under 140 characters. At the same time, it’s a great opportunity to network, discuss social media tips and tactics, and learn from others.

There may be lots of people across the globe, who are attending this year’s WTM, who rarely get the chance to meet with their Twitter contacts, so hopefully this evening will be able to help these travel tweeters connect with each other.

How can I get involved?
As you can see, we have created a
Facebook Travtweeup fan page which anyone can subscribe to, send pictures to, or just post a comment.

You can also email pictures to, and these will automatically go up on the Facebook website.

There will likely be a lot of digital activity taking place over WTM, so we thought that it might make things clearer, but of course everyone should also use the tried and tested hashtag method (#travtweetup).

As it’s a public group, you could also use it if you’re hoping to meet up with someone in particular, just leave  a comment saying you’ll be there…

During the evening, we will also be filming attendees, and ask them to talk about how they use Twitter, or social media, in their role, and ask if it has helped them when organising WTM
