Could 2014 Be the Year of the Social Media Travel Startup?

Could 2014 Be the Year of the Social Media Travel Startup? | Corporate Meetings | Scoop.it

For many travel startups, the Holy Grail is to create a platform that entices users away from Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.

Patrick Wallace's insight:

Face it, the world is a social place and with the advent of more and more social media sites corporate travel is naturally migrating to these sites.  Service providers had better swim with the tide, so to speak, or get drowned for good.  The generations that are "coming up" are tech savvy and want ease of adoption.  Get on board or get out of the way, technology is here - and to stay!!

Conference News - Research White Papers - Meetings and the Future of Face-to-Face Interaction: A Generational Perspective - Successful Meetings

Meetings and the Future of Face-to-Face Interaction: A Generational Perspective - Author Brent Green examines the future of meetings through the lens of age. (There's a surplus of #association #conferences.
Patrick Wallace's insight:

This article makes several very good points about both the Generational Perspective, and the Generational Gap that has the meetings industry in a concerned mindset.  There is a real possibility that the Millennial Generation, the very generation coming into decision making roles, will opt for more and more virtual meetings. The very prospect of dwindling "market share" of live conferences versus virtual has been an ongoing discussion point in the Meetings & Conference Industry.

But - there is a very good example in the article of the legend - Mr. Steve Jobs & Apple, and how Mr. Jobs used conferences and meetings to build a huge buzz about products not yet released.  Brilliant positioning, expert needs analysis and a never ending drive for success is what I personally recall from those events.  

So - it may be a concern that there may be a reduction in LIVE meetings, but in my opinion it is up to the LEADERS to reconfigure the event structures to better serve the needs of a changing audience.

Just one professionals opinion.
