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.

Hello Toronto!

After much deliberation we’ve decided to start a Toronto Massive instagram account as one of the ways to support this community better. Come give us a follow at @TravelMassiveTO, find yourself, reminisce about the past events (we’ve chosen a few to populate this new account).

We also invite you to tag us, use #TravelMassiveToronto and invite @TravelMassiveTO as a collaborator to your Massive adventures ☺️

Lat but not least, if you are looking to engage w/ the community as a social media volunteer give us a shout at toronto@travelmassive.com.

Hello Travel Massive Toronto 👋,

We are reaching out as a follow-up to our first Travel Massive meet-up of the year with an announcement and a request!

Thank you to everyone who attended our meet-up at Duke's Refresher in June. It was great getting together and catching up with our Toronto Travel Massive crew as well as meeting new Travel Industry members. We really are a special group and the energy of over 10 years strong was present.

The announcement:

When Travel Massive asked if anyone would be interested in stepping in to lead the chapter going forward, I enthusiastically answered the call. My name is Kateryna and I am happy to share that I will be your new chapter lead. I am a Toronto-based travel photographer, writer, and content creator. Over the last decade, I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with brands, tourism boards, and a wide range of hotels, sharing stories and inspiring future travelers one photo at a time. Outside of my frequent globe-trotting I freelance as a Design Director and Researcher in tech startups and run an online music magazine, QuipMagazine.com, which I founded in 2011.

I have been a Travel Massive member since 2017 and attended a wealth of events over the years where I’ve met quite a few of you lovely people. This community and the events have been very helpful in my personal growth as a travel professional so when the opportunity to join the team opened up I saw it as a chance to share my experience, learn from others, and support this wonderful global network in the city that I live and love.

In support of my new role will also be long-time Travel Massive community members, Rain, Jasmin, and Cristina.

We are all very grateful to Cristina for all of her amazing hard work, and community-building over the years with great support from Will and Melissa 👏. Glad to say that we can still expect to see them at future events, it will just be in a new capacity, as attendees.

The Request:

I could imagine we are all eager to see what the next big event might be. The good news is we are starting to work on the programming for the upcoming months 🎉 As members you get a say in what those might look like so we’d like to ask you for some input.

Please take a moment to fill out this short survey, your input will be incredibly helpful and guide future programming.

Survey link: tmsv.co/TorontoTravelMassiveSurvey

We hope to see you at upcoming events - meeting old friends, new members, and Travel Industry partners of Travel Massive. Please stay in touch with us on Toronto Travel Massive and on Facebook @TorontoTravelMassive.

Find me on Travel Massive (@katerryna or kateryna@travelmassive.com), Instagram (@katerryna) or at pathstotravel.com 😊

Have a wonderful week,

Kateryna T.

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
