The travel media landscape has been rapidly changing over the last 20 years. And coupons? Well, they’re more than things you clip out of your local newspaper to save money on groceries. People have certain expectations about using coupon codes for online purchases, and online merchants need to adapt to this changing landscape.
We’ve invited dozens of travel agents, media influencers, and celebrated travel writers as they give speeches, provide workshops, give tutorials and industry panels.
After Attending ECCM you’ll learn:
- how to keep current in the digital travel publishing field.
- what’s trending in the industry today.
- learn from experts in both the travel and coupon industry
- make connections with other coupon lovers
- meet destination and travel brands
- learn about new products and services in the industry.
- and have fun!
