The beach and unexpected surprises got #TravelChatCA participants excited this past December 7th, TravelChatCA when we teamed up with Visit St. Petersburg Clearwater (VSPC). Canadians did some serious wanderlusting over the course of the hour as we chatted about Chihuly, Dali, paddling through mangroves, manatees, sunsets, and of course the beaches. From Halifax to Vancouver TCCA fans wanted to learn more about the area including activities for adults and kids.
The Chat Didn’t Stop There
Interest was high for St. Pete/Clearwater and even after the hour was over, participants continued the conversation, asking @VSPC everything they wanted to know to plan the perfect winter getaway. Flights, food, activities, and weather were the main topics. Travel Chat CA participants definitely learned how to #LiveAmplified that evening.
Big Buzz Words of the Twitter Party
A huge THANK YOU goes to Visit St. Petersburg/Clearwater for being incredible partners of the chat and staying beyond the hour to answer all of our fans. Thank you also goes out to Loews Don CeSar for offering up an amazing prize in the 3 night stay for our lucky winner. Make sure you follow @VSPC, and @Loews_Hotels on Twitter.
