The Social Travel Summit is where the world’s leading online travel influencers and travel industry decision-makers meet to share, learn and develop best practices and collaborative success in travel marketing and publishing. With my Post Graduate Honours Degree in Tourism Management, I could not dream up a better shoot even if I tried!!
VisitBritain hosted this years Social Travel Summit Gala Dinner at Achnagairn Castle, with the support of their premium sponsor, trivago.
Travel bloggers from across the world was in for a special treat at Achangairn Castle. Before the Glala Dinner, guests were welcomed upon arrival by Piper On Parade and an exclusive performance by the Northern Constabulary Pipe Band. After dinner, guest were entertained with a jam packed programme which included Gin Tasting from Glen Wywis Gin and Loch Ness Gin, Cheese Tasting from the Cheese Pantry at Connage, a Fashion Show by Siobhan Mackenzie, Story Telling at a camp fire and of course… a Rocking Ceilidh from Bahookie!
I have honestly never in my life seen so many folk gathered in one spot, on their phones, constaintly, but then again, that’s their jobs, to BLOG about their travels. The only time (some) of them put their phones down, was on the dancfloor, and again, never in my life have I seen literary everyone at an event rocking it out on the dancefloor at Achnagairn Castle. Thank you Bahookie for some awesome tunes during the night.
Enjoy a few of the shoot’s highlights, and don’t forget to leave your comments below…
