5 Insights We Brought Back from TravelCon

How TravelCon Went for Us

TravelCon was jam-packed with useful information every single day. We learned so much! But the highlight? Networking with you, the travel bloggers. Angelika had over 60 meetings where she listened to your challenges and concerns. Understanding what matters to you helps us improve the Travelpayouts platform to better meet your needs.

It was fantastic meeting our partners, Lora and Amanda, and recording a video for our Instagram with them. We also had great conversations with the organizers of the WITS conference, which we attended as well. Expect lots of exciting and useful content and new collaborations on our social networks and blog. 

Check out our Instagram video to get a taste of the energetic and idea-filled TravelCon atmosphere.

5 Insights from TravelCon

Angelika shared her top 5 memorable takeaways from the conference:

  1. Growth happens outside your comfort zone. We all know this, but do we practice it? Speaking in front of hundreds of creators was tough, but it aligned with my long-term vision, so I went for it!
  2. Community over competition. The creator/influencer industry can be self-centered, but sharing information helps everyone. The power of community is REAL and keeps you going when times are tough.
  3. Investing in yourself pays off. Taking a chance on yourself is essential. When you invest in mentors, programs, and conferences, you push yourself harder and see better results.
  4. Networking is everything. It’s not just about what you know, but WHO you know. Build and nurture relationships to go far. Surround yourself with people who are headed where you want to go.
  5. Focus on giving, and you’ll get 10X in return. Make it about helping others, and the universe will reward you. Serving others brings incredible returns.
