Travel Writers Seeking the Quirky, Hoping to Inspire Road Trips
CLEAR LAKE, Iowa -- A unique group of travel and destination professionals gathered this week at the iconic Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa. The Building Community Conference invited travel writers and bloggers to meet with convention and tourism promoters across the Midwest. “So we thought, why don’t we bring it to our backyard and teach people about the relationships you can build with writers and destinations that we’ve been successful building together and throughout the Midwest,” said Libbey Hohn, Director of Tourism for Clear Lake.
