LinkedIn for AdventureTourism Industry: access 800+ peers

LinkedIn is an powerful, free tool for professionals in any industry.
It allows you to connect with your industry peers, network, quickly share news, events, find partners and much more.
Adventure Engine hosts a LinkedIn group that has over 800 members from the adventure tourism and travel industry. The group is moderated and only those with industry connections are permitted to access the group and discussions are limited to topics of interest to adventure tour and travel professionals (not weight loss pills!)
Every day there are new discussions, journalists looking for tourism story leads, agents looking for providers and tourism providers commenting on industry trends, new trip launches and events.
It is a great way to interact with a large group of industry professionals easily and the dialogue is fast a valuable in these channels.
LinkedIn has over 65 million members worldwide and grows steadily every day, the ability for your message to extrapolate through member networks is astonishing and it is a fabulous way to build your industry connections.
Hope you give it a try at www.linkedin.com and once you are on (or if you are already a member) be sure to try the Adventure Travel and Tourism Professionals Group click here. We look forward to hearing from you and sharing your content.
