  • Blogger

    Attending the 2018 Midwest Travel Conference was one of the best investments I’ve ever made in my career as a travel blogger.  The intimate scale of the conference allowed me to connect with several new destinations and deepen existing relationships, which has resulted in four hosted trips so far—and likely more in the months and years ahead!…  I’m already looking forward to what they have planned for the 2019 conference in Medora, North Dakota!
