Unofficial travel blogs create ebook

Wired In Travel Conference (WIT), Singapore, will be collaborating with the Canada-e-Connect Conference in Vancouver, on a new eBook called “Tips from the T-List” - the unofficial list of travel-related blogs.
The eBook will be launched at Canada-e-Connect which takes place in Vancouver on November 7-9, and will then make its Asian debut at WIT on November 27-29. The book will also be available to delegates at the Travolution Autumn Conference in London on November 1 and via its website, blog and magazine.

Mathieu Ouellet from Quebec City, who started the T-List” said, “The idea of bringing together all different travel-related blogs was born and nurtured in Canada, but has quickly turned into a global community of travel marketers, many of whom have come together to form a T-List group on social networking phenomenon Facebook.”

Jens Thraenhart, the executive director of marketing strategy & customer relationship management for the Canadian Tourism Commission, who will be chairing Canada-e-Connect and speaking at WIT on “E-Business Strategies For Destinations and Other Marketers in An Age of Transparency”, writes in his Tourism Internet Marketing Blog, “In the world of Web 2.0, Globalization, and Mass Collaboration, as well as cross-national partnerships, we believe we can all make a difference and putting our words into action and lead with an example.”

Singapore is joining the organisers of the event in Vancouver and the Travolution brand in London in calling for the best posts from travel-related blogs globally, so the content may serve as tool for travel and hospitality marketers worldwide to make sense of the ever-changing environment of new media, emerging technologies and consumer trends.

Topics will include e-marketing tips, search engine marketing, online advertising, social media, new and ground-breaking website reviews, and much more.


“We have been inspired by the collective knowledge of the T-List bloggers since its launch earlier this year. We hope this new book will provide a vital reference guide for travel, tourism and hospitality marketers,” said Kevin May, editor of Travolution.

Added Yeoh Siew Hoon, producer of WIT: “This is Web 2.0 in action and we are pleased to bring the weight of the world’s fastest growing market to this project. The T-List will then truly become the A-list of travel-related blogs in this new global, digital age.”
