What a great conference!
High energy, a true sense of camaraderie and a realistic and renewed optimistic outlook for 2009. Kudo's to all the attendees who made the trip to Atlanta, the PAII staff, the vendors for their support, the sponsors and all the speakers who shared so much information and thought with us all.
Peter and I had the "Privilege of the Podium" for several different speaking opportunities. One of the highlights, for us, was a collaborative effort with Peter Yesawich, of Y Partnership, on "Inside the Heads of Your Guests….How the latest on Traveler Behavior Affects B&B's and What To Do About It!" This presentation incorporated the latest information from Y Partnership's most recent travel and hospitality industry overview and is now blended with The B&B Team's overview and information about the B&B and Country Inn industry.
Key areas covered include: Web 2.0,Travel 2.0, Social Media Tools, Blogs, Twitter, Reputation Management, Mobility and more. For those of you in Atlanta, thank you for joining us in this session. For those of you who did not attend the conference, we would be pleased to share the findings, observations, recommendations and suggestions that will help you navigate the 2009 season.
