- - We are delighted with the success of the inaugural Meet The Media event here in Dublin. Meet The Media 2017 saw over 50 media turn up for pre-scheduled appointments, over 30 worldwide suppliers from all over the world were here. A really efficient online appointment system was used. Over 500 meetings were scheduled in advance all online, worked really well for the media and worked really well for the suppliers. - Very interesting day. Very wide range of different media, so a great day for us to announce our new launch of service from Dublin. - Today's been brilliant, I met a lot of different journalists from online, influences bloggers, it's been a really good day. They actually know quite a lot about Los Angeles but I think its been good to show them a different side about different culinary, multicultural side, different cultures, and also museums and what else we have to offer for the destination. - Everything has been so well laid out, from the moment you arrive. Teas and coffees, lunch, everything's been so inviting, and we've already had some really really exciting meetings. So from knowing so little, it's opened so many doors. - Oh I found it really really good. I was working this morning, I just drove up from the southwest of Ireland and it's been a great hub of activity. There's so many people in here to meet and greet, and it's great to see so many people from all over the world in one room together. - There's such a good cross section of representation here, so I'm getting the opportunity to talk to them about what I do at my blog, and what we're trying to achieve, and what we could do to work with them. - The mix so, we've had bloggers, we've had local media, we've had radio stations, so it's been a very good day for us because that's all the media that we want to actually meet, to try and diversify also the way we communicate in the market. - Really good day, lots of interesting people to meet, lots of different backgrounds, lots of different interest in travels, so really positive. - Here for American Holidays, Travelmood, and Al Fresco Holidays, so they all know one or all of the products which is great. The quality is really good, I mean what they're presenting to me in advance is really interesting as well. So I look forward to following up with a lot of them. - I like the way that it's structured, that you have 15 minutes with people, no more, no less, and that's perfect. - I got to meet loads of suppliers here today, from different tourist boards, airlines, and it's been a fantastic day all around. And as I said I was really impressed and I'll definitely be back next year to check it all out again. - And today I've met people from all over the world, the Caribbean, North America, all over Europe, so yeah, beneficial to say the least. - It's an extremely interesting event, and the fact that it's business like, its quick, you get your business done quickly and there's no mucking about. - Today is going really well, I've met with a mixture of bloggers, and freelancers, and national newspaper media, and we love being in Dublin for the day and getting to have face time with everybody. - What was good about this particular trip, obviously I know quite a few of the media in Ireland but there's all the new media here today. It's always good to meet new people, and we met a lot of new people here for the client today. - Some of the people I've met have been people I've met before which is quite good. I've been with people from Portugal, Poland, Czech Republic have been here, a lot of America which is always good as well, because its always good having people in one room, where you can also get to see old colleagues, you get to see a lot of travel writers. And Ireland we still have this thing, if we're from North or South, we don't get to see everybody all the time so it's always good to catch up with a few colleagues on the travel writing scene as well...........................
