Planning Your First Family Vacation: Where to go, where to stay, what to bring, and how to cope!

The term "family vacation" doesn't have to be an oxymoron. Exploring new places, seeing new faces, and trying new food does everybody good, and the journey can be part of the fun. Planning that first trip with kids means a new kind of travel that's different but just as rewarding. Have Baby Will Travel's mission is to inspire, motivate, and help families travel with babies, toddlers, and young children, and founder Corinne McDermott will help get you out the door and on that plane!

Saturday @ 12pm


As a first-time mom, Corinne McDermott had a tough time getting out of the house, never mind the country. She and her husband built Have Baby Will Travel after returning from the first family vacation with their then-infant daughter. With tips and information on destinations, packing, flying, travel gear, and family-specific hotel reviews--Corinne created the one-stop shop she was looking for when planning that first trip. Now a mom of two, her kids ask, "When are we going?" instead of, "Are we there yet?"


How to Plan Your Trip Using Social Media

Social media is changing the way that we travel by putting the power to create a highly personalized trip into the hands of individual travellers. With cutting-edge apps, websites and social feeds that allow travellers to customize itineraries, find the best rates, connect with other travellers, and share photos on the road, this talk will give you the tools to design the trip of your dreams.

Saturday & Sunday @ 2:30pm



Emily Baillie is a social media strategist and travel writer who has used social media to plan and document her travels through over 25 countries worldwide. She uses the latest social media tools to customize and capture 100% of her trips, from Morocco to Peru and France to Argentina, and she always travels independently. She has shared her travel experiences in a number of digital publications, including  Huffington Post Travel, TravelWeek blog, blogTO and Untapped Cities.
