Welcome to this week's TravelTalkMEDIA newsletter.

What a great week! I met over 200 experts from the International Facilities Managers Association this week. I was honored to serve as their keynote speaker at the San Diego chapter conference and trade fair. We covered everything in travel and tourism from security, trends, value and great tips and, of course my favorite, the impact of the convergence of media on the travel industry. It was reported this week by CNN that there were two and half million less viewers of television in the last two months than for this same time period last year. A major shift is and has been taking place. Conventional TV will always exist, but look out, because there is an onslaught of new delivery systems. Let's face it, we rely more and more on our online access, telephones and mp3 players for reliable information tailored to our needs.

The audience at
IFMA was great and we thank the Sand Diego chapter of the organization for the opportunity to tell the TravelTalkMEDIA story.

In just a few days I will be leaving for Kampala, Uganda where I will participate at the International Institute for Peace through Tourism. We will also be broadcasting live from Kampala and will include an exciting interview with Uganda's President, Yoweri Kaguta  Museveni.

At the same time, Patrick heads off to Virginia City, Nevada where he will participate in the annual Tourism Cares event where volunteers from the travel industry will refurbish, rebuild and renovate the little town that was once a vital silver mine and thriving city.

13 Days 11 nights in China
Trip of the Year 2007


Please note the scenery of the heart of the Yangtze - the area from the Three Gorges all the way upstream to Chongqing, will eventually be covered in water by the completion of the Three Gorges Dam, an integral part of the Three Gorges Project.  We will only be able to experience the original wonders of the Three Gorges by boat until 2007, when water will cover forever the sights we cherish today.
