(PRWEB) September 25, 2012
Online Revealed, Canada’s only tourism internet marketing conference, will be back on the road for the 8th annual event in 2013. The conference, which focuses on the latest in online travel marketing trends, will take place at Caesars Hotel and Casino in Windsor Ontario, April 2-4, 2013, with an anticipated attendance of 450 delegates from across Canada.
Founded and produced by travel and technology industry innovators, A Couple of Chicks™ Digital Tourism Marketing, the 2013 conference will once again bring attendees the latest trends in digital marketing for the travel industry including the latest in social media, mobile marketing, search marketing and travel distribution online.
The first Online Revealed Canada, held in Ottawa in 2006, drew 180 attendees and has since evolved to become the go-to event for the travel and tourism industry in Canada to learn, connect and be informed about the fast changing world of digital marketing.
“We are extremely excited to be returning to our “travel” roots in changing the host city of Online Revealed each year, with Caesars Windsor as the chosen location for 2013,” said Online Revealed Canada Co-Chair and A Couple of Chicks™ Co-founder Patricia Brusha. “It is hard to believe how far we have come since the first conference held in Ottawa in 2006, and we continue to be committed to keeping the Canadian tourism marketing industry ahead of the curve in digital marketing moving forward.”
Industry giants like Facebook, Google, Travelzoo and Expedia will present the latest trends during the two-day conference, with a focus around hands-on learning workshops, travel and technology exhibitors, networking opportunities, as well as events and presentations from the most popular speakers in digital marketing today.
Attendees will hear from digital marketing expert Mitch Joel, President of Twist Image and author of “Six Pixels of Separation”, the first book to integrate digital marketing, social media, personal branding and entrepreneurship, in a keynote presentation on April 4th. Mitch Joel will introduce his latest book “CTRL ALT DEL: How to Reboot Your Business (and Yourself) in a Connected World”.
The conference is also home to the 4th annual Canadian e-Tourism Awards, which will be presented at a special luncheon on April 4th. These awards recognize the evolution and marketing power of the digital space, including social media and traditional consumer websites. The awards are sponsored by leaders in the industry including Google, Miles Partnership, T4G and VIA Rail, and celebrate excellence in Canadian tourism marketing online.
New this year, and after a successful pilot project launched at Online Revealed 2012 Toronto Conference, the Canadian DMO Online Benchmarking Series will bring key insights to the performance of Canadian Destination Marketing Organizations, against their peers, and against International Destinations including New Zealand and the U.S.A. The groundbreaking research program, produced in conjunction with the Canadian Tourism Commission, will highlight key insights into the trends, challenges and opportunities destination marketers are facing in today’s competitive digital world.
Conference registration will open in October 2012. Sponsorship packages are available by contacting Dino Fazio at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Patricia Brusha at email@example.com for speaking opportunities.
