Travel Massive Meeting in Bristol
At SS Great Britain Dockyard Café Bar
Travel Massive is a free global event to connect travel insiders. Find out if there is a travel massive group near you.
I attended my travel massive meeting in June 2016 which was only the 2nd Bristol meet up so it’s still all very new. To find out how I got on at my first travel massive meeting.
Since June I have been working so hard on my blog, learning different aspects of blogging and getting some good networks that it has really increased my confidence.
Traveltorecovery.com is now growing nicely I have more of an idea of my niche and where my blog is heading so I feel more confident to approach people to discuss my blog which is important at these sort of events as at the end of the day that’s what it’s all about.
I just thought everyone is in the same boat as me and it was a really productive meeting. There were bloggers, freelance writers, hotel owners, hot air balloonist, tour guides a really mixed bunch.
SS Great Britain hosted in their café and also offered guided tours to people attending the meeting which was well received. They provided complimentary wine or soft drinks which kept getting topped up maybe that’s why I had more confidence at this meeting. Also cake and sandwiches which were delicious and they provided bags so we could take some goodies home as I don’t think many of us got to eat whilst we were there as there was so much talking going on.
I still didn’t get chance to speak to everyone, it was a really good turnout with over 40 bloggers and travel professionals. It would have been impossible to speak to every member but hopefully I will get to speak to them at another meeting.
Tips for Travel Massive Networking
• Take business cards
• Look to see who is attending beforehand if there is anyone of interest look at their website and prepare something to approach them with
• It’s all about networking so don’t be the shy one in the corner no one will remember you but also don’t be the loud one that takes advantage of all the complimentary wine otherwise you will be remembered for the wrong reasons
