Instagram Travel Thursday Meetups are coming! #IGtravelThursday

Instagram Travel Thursday meetup Instagram Travel Thursday is a way to connect travel bloggers on Instagram with each others, with travelers and with the travel industry. During the past few months we have generated hundreds of blog posts, over 100 travel bloggers have been involved, and we have together generated over 2000 photos on Instagram using our #IGtravelThursday hashtag. The latest #IGtravelThursday photos on Instagram: Every week an average of 35 bloggers are posting about Instagram travel in their blogs and it has been a wonderful way to get to know travelers who enjoy using Instagram. I say it’s enough of this virtual love affair – let’s take this to next level and meet up! We are currently planning two IG Travel Thursday meetups in Europe, and hopefully we can plan one in the USA soon as well.

IG Travel Thursday Meetups in Europe

Note: these meetups don’t actually happen on a Thursday, regardless our project name and the blog post linky day. OCTOBER: DUBLIN Our first meetup will be on October 3rd in Dublin, Ireland during the TBEX conference. We wanted to organize a meet up outside the conference program times but due everyone’s travel times and the amazing program at the conference we decided just to meet on Thursday, on the first day of the conference and have lunch together at the conference. Comment in the post if you are interested in joining us. NOVEMBER: STOCKHOLM Our second meetup will be in Stockholm, Sweden, on November 9th as a small part of Stockholm Travel Massive event. We are still planning the event(s) and negotiating with possible sponsors for this a bit larger event, where also Finnish travel bloggers are traveling to Sweden for the meetup. Stay tuned for details.

Also travel destinations are welcome to connect with us to recommend and/or sponsor meetups in your location.

  1. I would love to meet up at TBEX. I am totally new to blogging and instagram and have been really enjoying your gorgeous site. Besides being a fun read, it has been incredibly helpful in making sense of it all– my group of friends does not use instagram at all– it still has the perception of being a 20something thing in my circles, so I am hoping to help change that. I’m definitely still learning, so I am looking forward to hearing you speak at the conference.

  2. Wish I could come to the Dublin meet-up, but I signed up for the Travel Writing pre-TBEX workshop. Sorry to miss it. Will anyone be at the Travel Massive meet up the night before?

    I can’t wait until both meetups, so excited to finally meet in person people I’ve got to know through Instagram!

  4. So excited that you are able to get together with folks for the meet ups! Such an exciting next step and way to connect with travel loving instagrammers.
