FTA Summit a smashing success

My mind is still spinning from this week’s Family Travel Association summit. The event was an overwhelming success.

I could regale you with hour-by-hour recaps of what we did and how it went, but I’ve already done that for the FTA blog here and here. I also could sum up the best and biggest moments of the week, but I’ve done that for AFAR.com here. Heck, if you really wanted to, you could check out the FTA’s Facebook page and listen to archived versions of my Facebook Live interviews with keynote speakers there.

Whatever you do, please follow up and read and listen and think more about family travel. The girls and I are headed to the coast for storm-watching and some R&R. Check back next week for more targeted impressions and more specific action items for the weeks and months ahead.

FTA Board of Advisors. I love these peeps.

    Hi Matt – I’m CEO of Babierge.com, a baby equipment rental marketplace. We’re relatively new on the scene, just launched in May (aside from a test market in Santa Fe). We use independent Trusted Partners – contractors – to deliver, set-up, pick up the baby gear (which they own). I’d love to tell you more. I’m pitching some investors and I am looking for good stats on the size of the family travel market and any stats on traveling with babies. Would appreciate any help on this. Thanks, Fran

      Fran: Thanks for reading. I can’t give you those sorts of stats, but I might be able to connect you with people who could. Please email me.
