TMS Family Travel produces conferences that bring you the latest in family travel trends, techniques, and technology. Top family travel media – bloggers, writers and broadcasters with significant social media reach – come from around the country to participate in a three-day program which includes workshops featuring top experts in video, social media and branding as well as editors from major newspaper and magazine outlets. The Conference also includes a table-top session in a shuffle format which allows our sponsors to meet with our media attendees allowing them to exchange information and dialogue with these top tier family travel influencers.
