    In a candid one-on-one, Expedia boss Dara Khosrowshahi shared his thoughts on tours and activities, China, vacation rentals and the company’s growth with Trivago, Travelocity, and — hopefully soon — Orbitz. Here’s the discussion with the Expedia CEO, edited for clarity and brevity. Let’s talk China, let’s talk the eLong exit. You were in the business for 11 years ad I’m curious what you’ve learned in that time and what’s next in that market.  We’ve known for awhile that China is a giant market but also a very competitive market.

    Toronto's Dundas Square in the SummerI have known this for some time. When booking travel online, if I book air and hotel together (on Expedia Canada, for example) I get better deals than if I book separately. It's not surprising because bundling has been used by all kinds of businesses to offer consumers package deals where everybody wins. The suppliers get to sell their offerings together with other suppliers while the consumer gets a one-stop-shopping solution to their needs.Good news.It looks like this year will be even better for bundling travel because airline ticket fares have gone…

    Speaking at an international travel technology conference in Kerala, India in 2013. I had just finished threading a microphone wire through my top in front of a room full of mostly men – be ready for anything as a speaker. Although I’ve been a speaker on social media for tourism for years, I vividly remember getting started and the things that made me scratch my head. When someone asked in a LinkedIn Group about becoming a pro speaker, this is the advice that I shared…. What Do You Speak About? First I had to decide what sort of expertise I had that would translate into a 45…

    Cover of SXSWi 2007 print conference guide (photo by Sheila Scarborough) It is that time of year here in central Texas. Time for “South by.” SXSW. South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. “The thing that ate the month of March.” There are three parts to the SXSW festival – Interactive, Film, and Music. Many only know about the well-publicized Music portion (which is indeed a huge deal) but in fact the Interactive/technology part of the event draws the most attendees – 30,000+ in 2014, with the same number or more expected this year in 2015.

    Magazine rack; so many choices for content! (photo courtesy Cathy Stanley-Erickson on Flickr CC) While putting together a presentation for the ETC (Educational Travel Community) conference in Boston, I was asked by the organizers to create a list of 15 travel-related resource sites that tour operators, tour suppliers, alumni group travel organizers, and others could monitor for current items of interest, and then share with their email and social media audiences. Useful content that you share is content that YOU don’t have to create. It’s a time-saver and it’s also helpful…

  • Startup pitch: Faralong moves into adventure travel with group buying model

    Nick Vivion
    29 Jun 2015 | 10:01 am
    The adventure travel trade has seen new startups come along over the past year, from Inspired Challenge to Embark.org. The latest entry into adventure travel is called Faralong. The adventure travel startup is taking a page from the Groupon book by making adventure tours cheaper as more people join. This mechanic is clever for two clear reasons: the consumer is incentivized to share and do some legwork on behalf of the tour company to enjoy cost savings, while the tour operator is happy to pass along marketing savings to the customer, who is out evangelizing the product independently.

    25 Jun 2015 | 8:42 am
    After several searches on Google mobile and desktop for the best Sunday brunches in Toronto for Father's Day, I chose the Fairmont Royal York's Epic restaurant's Sunday Brunch. Google gave me several options. Or rather different blogs and publications I found via Google gave me many options. Ironically, the Royal York's brunch did not appear on Blog.TO's Top Ten Hotel Brunches in Toronto list! I not only looked at hotels mind you, I looked at other lists that included restaurants. It did appear however on Yelp's list in the #3 spot (on mobile, but #2 on desktop), which led me to believe that…

    19 Jun 2015 | 4:00 am
    Hostess... hides behind a podium  smiles and says hello moves you along processes assigns tables takes you to your seat keeps things moving along says good bye and thank you Innkeepers... position themselves to “dance" welcome get to know seek to understand why you’re here pick up clues deliver the unexpected make new friends, and... remember old ones create comfort and trust, so... they can get the truth when people leave Innkeeping requires vastly different skills than hostessing. But first you need to understand why you’re doing it…so you know who to hire.

    The work that gets noticed and gets talked about changes lives for the better. So do things that matter…ignore everything else. The best way to spread the word about your work is through other people…people willing to go on a crusade with you about what you’re doing. And the only way to build a tribe of loyal raving fans is to develop trust…by sharing the purpose of your work through personal connections and by keeping your promises. Simple ideas…really hard work.

It reminded me of the single most important life lesson I've learned in my adult time on the planet. Pandering to those above you (or to yourself) is never as effective as investing in the development of healthy relationships with your peers, team member and family. This is where leadership starts...and ends.

Well, that's really hard to say. An institutional product like college education is just like any other thing or service we buy. It has varying levels of value depending on your goals, values and world view. There is no one answer that fits everyone. I know that's the system we've been taught (or conditioned or even bullied) to believe in. But it simply isn't that simple...anymore. We grew up believing that if we had the money or…

  • Will Japan’s Tourism Boom Lead to a Place Branding Boom?

    Bill Baker
    22 Jun 2015 | 6:20 pm
    Over the years many of my most well-travelled friends have said that Japan is the most beautiful and fascinating country they have visited. It turns out they were well-informed early adopters because Japan is emerging as one of the world’s hottest destinations following decades of sluggish visitation numbers. The cheaper Yen, easier visas, booming outbound tourism from China and increased destination marketing have resulted in international arrivals exceeding 10 million for the first time.  The aim of Japan National Tourism Office is to attract over 20 million visitors when Tokyo hosts the…

  • Is Your Tourism Marketing Tapping into Visitor Feelings?

    Bill Baker
    21 May 2015 | 1:08 pm
    In my book I have observed how successful places focus on delivering emotional and social benefits. They are concerned by how they will make people feel, rather than relying on boring lists, facts and details. I recently came across similar comments by brand strategist Megan Kent where she said, "Marketers haven't been using all the tools available to them because they assume that consumers make decisions rationally. While the rational, or 'thinking' part of the brain does play a role, it's most often there to simply validate, or put into words a decision that our subconscious mind has…
  • Why is Wayfinding Integral to Place Branding? PART TWO

    Bill Baker
    29 Apr 2015 | 9:44 am
    Last week we considered how a wayfinding system adds to how we interact with locations and its importance to place branding. In order for a wayfinding system to support a brand and provide outstanding experiences at critical touchpoints, a comprehensive brand strategy should firstly be fully developed and ready for implementation before the initial visual concept for wayfinding is explored. The brand platform should inspire all communications, including wayfinding and key experiences. Well-designed wayfinding can be a critical element in creating a successful environment for residents,…
  • How Does Wayfinding Support Place Branding? PART ONE

    Bill Baker
    15 Apr 2015 | 11:16 am
    The primary function of wayfinding is to guide people to places. It has a vital role to play in connecting the physical environment of the destination with the needs and emotions of visitors (as well as residents) who want to be stimulated, entertained, educated and challenged. It should help them recall branded communications that they may have been exposed to before arriving in the area. Wayfinding is important to brand building because it recognizes that our brains respond emotionally first, then logically. In addition to offering ease of navigation, a branded wayfinding system can provide…
