The Travel Media Showcase (TMS, http://www.travelmediashowcase.com), which brings together over 150 travel writers and journalists from around the world, will meet in Irvine, CA from September 21 to 24. The Irvine Chamber Visitors Bureau (http://www.irvinecvb.org) is organizing the local program that includes an exclusive fashion show and Taste of O.C. dining event. Leading print, online and broadcast travel media are scheduled to attend the 2010 show, which is in its eleventh year and produced by J. Vero & Associates of Freehold, New Jersey.
TMS provides journalists and tourism executives the opportunity to meet in one-on-one meetings and develop relationships to support information exchange for business and leisure travelers. Journalists are able to develop new story ideas and collect background material, while tourism professionals have a chance to expose their respective agencies to writers that may report on their destinations, venues and attractions in travel features and guides.
