The first proActive series event

On Wednesday 5th October we welcomed select members of the tourist and travel industry to join us for breakfast.

During breakfast, we had an informative presentation from our very own Jamie Snook on the importance of social media, focusing on paid social media advertising within the travel industry. 

Interesting Stats

  • 50% of all travellers post their experiences to social media according to World Travel Monitor ® figures
  • 72% of Facebook users said their friend's photos inspired their travel plans
  • EyeforTravel researchers state 60 % of travel companies are using Instagram to showcase travel destinations
  • £32 billion spend on Digital Travel sales is predicted for 2017

When you consider and combine these statistics with the growing trend of multi-screening; paid social is not a channel that can be easily ignored in marketing strategies! 

If you would like to know more about paid social and how Active International can help your travel business succeed with digital/social advertising get in touch:

This event was the first in the proActive series, and we will continue producing informative content and inviting professionals to learn and network with relevant Thought Leaders.

The feedback we have had from the event has been really positive and will be useful in shaping the rest of our series in 2017.
