Fort Wayne, Indiana: My New Home Away From Home
September 4, 2015
A few weeks ago, I was chosen to be one of 60 travel writers to attend this year's Travel Media Showcase in Bloomington, Indiana. This showcase was a chance for writers and travel destinations to get a chance to come together to learn more about one another. The Travel Showcase was set up sort of like a speed dating event giving each writer 15 minutes to chat with the various CVBs. While this was my first time attending the Travel Media Showcase it definitely won't be my last. I love how organized and straight to the point the showcase was; I got a chance to learn about some great destinations and I met some very cool people in the process.
