Hello Toronto community,

Since the inception of Travel Massive Toronto a few of you have won trips by attending our partner events with destinations or made connections that lead to trips and we'd love to see your stories.

Whether you attended and were lucky to be whisked away on a trip (remember the Taiwan event?), worked through a giveaway challange or made your own connections through Travel Massive, it's an inspiring story. This could have been a dream trip or a life changing opportunity and we are very happy to be the linchpin in that adventure and excited to continue offering these connections to our members.

So let's look back at the last decade:
- Are you one of the giveaway recipients
- Have you have met someone at a Travel Massive which led you to a trip or a documented partnership
- Did you enjoyed the event so much that you created content about it or the topic you learned about (blog posts, reels, IG posts)
- Do you have a story of how Travel Massive has impacted you, that you'd like to share

Please share it with us, you can do so by commenting on this post (so others can see and be inspired :) or email it to us directly to toronto@travelmassive.com.

We cannot wait to see your stories

Living 2 hours away, sometimes you are not 'in the loop' and I welcome the opportunity to meet other travel industry professionals at a Travel Massive event. The friendships that I have made over the years with other content creators have been priceless. I look to these people for inspiration, motivation and generally great travel content. I travel with them to faraway places. I look forward to meeting more travelers at the next event.

I've attended two events so far and met some very cool travel bloggers like @travelwithtmc.com, @goatrotichronicles.ca and @downshiftingpro. I'm able to learn from their examples. Thank you Kateryna for organizing the events.

Hi Kateryna. I'm interested in beginner photography and other specific sessions. I'd also like to learn about video editing. And I'd like to learn more about blogging. Which platforms to use and creating a blog that works.

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I'm a Toronto-based photographer - I started with weddings and family photography but gained traction in the travel, event (fam trips) and hotel space. Although my strength is photography, I'm building up my cinematic short-form video portfolio.

If you're on Instagram, feel free to give me a follow www.instagram.com/jessica_hoang. I'll be sure to follow you back and engage with your account :)

I hope to meet you all and attend a Travel Massive Toronto event.

Cheers!
Jessica

Hi Kateryna, I just tried to provide my name for the name tags via the Google Forms link you provided. However, I get this error message: "This form can only be viewed by users in the owner's organization."

Is there any other way to access this form?
