Twitter Takes Me Places

It's official:  I'm heading to New York City to be a part of two social media panels at the E-Tourism Summit!  It's all thanks to the support I've received from the Spokane Regional CVB management team to make Twitter & Facebook work for our destination.

The Summit is October 13 & 14 at the Marriott New York Marquis right in the heart of Manhattan near Times Square.

I'm included in the list of speakers, complete with photo and speaker bio. Woo hoo! Fancy!

Chad and I have never been to NYC, so if everything works out as we hope it will he'll be coming with me.  He can investigate the city while I'm in session, then in the evenings we'll explore together.  And we're hoping to stay an extra day if we can make it work so we'll have a whole day together in the city.

Thank God for my parents' willingness to hang with the twins for 5 days & 4 nights. (Chad's parents will be out of town that week.)

We are so very excited! If you have any ideas as to where we should go/see/do/try, please let me know!

  1. Century 21 Deparment store, right down in Manhattan is the ultimate deal shopping--amazing!Roccos on Thompson Street, Tea and Sympathy on Greenwich, Symphony Space on the Upper West Side, John Lennon's strawberry field in Central Park and of course all of Central Park, Carnegie hall, all the museums, the Stanton Island ferry you gives you a free great view of Lady Liberty if you won't have time to go to Ellis Island, Obviously you'll need to go again!

    Plan to walk and use the subways- they are great and you'll really feel the essence of NYC by walking it.
