It is conference time of year for me, and tomorrow I will be heading off to a family travel conference. It is a unique conference because it is small and just for family travel writers. It’s my first time attending and I’m excited to see what they have to offer. It is being held in Niagara Falls, NY and even though this is just a few hours from me, I have never been there. I’ve visited the Canadian side of the Falls many times and I’m excited to see things from the the south side. It’s sure to be a great event!
My last travel conference was held in Toronto. The TBEX conference was a larger conference and since it was in Toronto I was already familiar with many of the local attractions they were introducing to us, but not all of them! I went to the Distillery District on a tour and had a chance to ride a segway through the area and visit a really cool area of Toronto.
There were some excellent but very packed workshops and of course some great parties where they possibly took advantage of corporate catering in Toronto and served up some delicious meals. Food and drink were definitely a big part of this conference. On pre-tours we had the chance to taste test a variety of different foods and we even got to test some of the different types of beer they make in the distillery district.
I hope to have another great experience this weekend in Niagara Falls, New York. I know that they have scheduled some great activities for us and some fun blogger friends will be there, so it’s bound to be a great time! You can learn more about my weekend in the coming weeks.
