Phil from Rezgo asked me to mention this event on my blog… it’s pleasure Phil! Phil and Stephen are everywhere since a couple of months… 2008 will be an amazing year for them and Rezgo! ; )
You can join them at PhoCusWright@ITB Berlin on March 5th - 8th. BTW, the program is great. Tips From the T-List will even present a workshop (I told you the program is great! haha)
PhoCusWright is the travel industry research authority on the evolving dynamics that influence how travelers, suppliers and intermediaries connect. They have embraced the blogging community to help advocate dialog and discussion throughout the travel industry. (source : PhoCusWright Bloggers Summit group on Facebook)
Most of you will remember the T-List that I’ve started back in March of 2007. It never stopped growing since then. Jens Thraenhart wrote a summary of the *history* of the T-List to introduce the next project inspired by the T-List which is the book Tips from the T-List. Here is the story : Ground-breaking new book in online travel and tourism….
The book will be distributed at the first ever Canadian e-Tourism Strategy Conference, Canada-e-Connect. This is a collective work so you are more than welcome if you want to submit an article. Here is how to it :
Deadline for submission is September 30, 2007
1. Complete and fax back the following consent form to +1 604 648 9651 or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Send us three of your best posts. The editors will select one of these posts to appear in the book. The posts should be your own work and should be things like tips, observations, or helpful hints. Please do not send news items or trend oriented posts because these will become outdated very quickly. Concentrate on original thoughts, tips, best practices, etc. Please limit the piece to 300-500 words max.
3. Send us a good quality headshot (if you want it included).
4. Send us a good quality screenshot of your blog or website.
5. Send us a very brief bio of yourself, and the description of your blog
6. Send us your full name, address, phone and email so we can send you a copy of the book.

Just a quick post to let you know that I’m glad so many people continued (and still share) the T-List. I’ve discovered a lot of blogs with it and I think it creates a little buzz around the tourism-travel-hospitality blogosphere. ; ) I will have to practice my Spanish and German because it looks like some interesting blogs are written in those languages.
By the way, Scott Rains added the T-List in Technorati Where’s the Fire. Thanks Scott.
Let’s continue to share the T-List!
Okay Travel/Tourism bloggers, it’s time to get known. I have to say that I hate this kind of game but since it could be helpful for everyone, why not? The goal is simple, I want my favorite blogs (Guillaume, Chris, Darren, Claude, etc.) to be discovered by a maximum of people from the tourism and travel industry.
T-List stands for Tourism/Travel list. This concept have been used in the past with the Z-List. This time, it’s up to travel and tourism bloggers to be discovered. ; )
- Write a post.
- Copy/paste the link list from the post you’ve discovered the T-List into it.
- Make sure the links are active and correct.
- If your blog is on the list, remove it’s not a self-promotion post. As Tim Fehlman (Z-List) said : “Don’t worry, because if your name is on mine, it’s on others and will spread.”
- Add your favorite tourism and travel blogs on it.
- Add the url of the blog where you’ve discovered the T-List as well.
- Publish the post.
- People will notice the T-List and continue it.
Here is the list
