Beverly, did you dial in with your computer audio or through a phone?

Also important re giving blood... they are looking for people who had the virus!
Yvette Cardozo
01:19:01
Seattle is or will be holding a blood drive at T-Mobile stadium (with free parking). Not sure of the dates
Yvette Cardozo
01:20:10
Oh yes...gardening. Included this in a story about what we're doing to keep sane.
Peggy Bendel
01:20:27
And a bit of good news from southern Arizona: I'm signed up to give blood on May 17...the first slot that was available within 25 miles of home! People are responding, and the Red Cross has a great system to sign up online.
Vanessa Chiasson
01:21:07
I'd keep travel going as is, with a focus on inspiration/long term planning. The average person plans a trip to Japan for months, if not years...
Brigitta Kroon-Fiorita
01:21:26
Keukenhof Gardens did a virtual tour as they are closed.
Katie Papadopoulos

Kim Beckius

I'm looking for ways to support the local food economy in destinations I love. For example, mainelobsternow.com is offering free overnight shipping on fresh or frozen seafood with $100 orders.
john Macdonald

People sheltered looking for escapes — and their future travel plans
Vanessa Chiasson
01:22:30
Top 10 novels set in Japan?? Top 10 Japanese cosmetics you can buy in the US (perhaps with organic botanicals??)
Elizabeth Harryman
01:22:55
New York Botanical Garden also has virtual tours.
john Macdonald
01:23:25
Hi Heather MacDonald from John Macdonald
Lavanya Sunkara
01:23:38
hi Heather! Good to hear you. I dream about NB a lot. Hope to write more about it once this is over. :) I may even do a road trip once the border opens.
Peggy Bendel
01:24:44
Sensitivity is essential: I'm getting marketing emails - as I'm sure we all are - particularly from resorts and hotels that are messaging as though nothing has changed. Even a few words saying "When you can travel again.." helps.
Brigitta Kroon-Fiorita
01:24:54
As all the regional SATW meetings are canceled, can we do a virtual cocktail networking event? TMAC did one last night. Just a thought.
Chris Moran
01:25:04
Hey there from Travel Nevada! If armchair, virtual visits to Nevada are of interest to your audiences, we have an online list of resources. If you're interested, email me (Chris Moran) at cmoran@travelnevada.com. Good luck to everyone!
Peggy Bendel
01:25:25
We should have an official SATW cocktail for the event!
Durant Imboden

Building on what Vanessa Chiasson just said, I think it's important to distinguish between magazine-style coverage and long-term or "evergreen" content. For example, I have a European travel-planning site, and while I address the coronavirus situation briefly, the site will continue to focus primarily on destinations. After all, the person who's holed up at home right now may be thinking about a trip to Paris or Padukah in the future, and he or she may well be searching on Google, Yandex, etc. for destination info. Bottom line: Think long-term, not just short-term!
