Out and about - awards - stats

Some various bits of housekeeping to kick off what is going to be pretty busy week:

1) The Travolution team - myself, Tricia Holly Davis (chief writer), Charlotte Davies (sales and sponsorship manager) and Simon Ferguson (publishing director) - relocates to Berlin for much of this week for the PhoCusWright conference taking place at the mammoth ITB travel exhibition.

We will be blogging live from the two-day event, and appearing on a panel on both days (Thursday and Friday) to discuss the impact of user-generated content on the travel industry.

2) Next up on our mini-bulletin is the Travolution Awards. The deadline for entries is Friday 16th March (i.e. a week Friday). Make sure you get your entries in to us via the dedicated website by that date. Category details are available here.

3) Early bird discounts for the Travolution Summit, taking place on Tuesday 24 April, end this Friday. Take advantage of the special £395 + VAT discounted rate here.

4) ...and, finally, thanks to all you eager readers. The Travolution Blog is on the verge of breaking into the top 30,000 most linked-to blogs on the web. [Not bad considering the source for that lovely stat comes from Technorati, which claims to monitor another 7.4 million other blogs as well as us].

We have also just scored a record period in terms of visitors. All this achieved in just 12 frenetic months. Keep visiting, commenting, and sending in your gossip. It is your input that makes the blog one of the key strands of the Travolution Brand.
