Jeff Blumenfeld is the author of "You Want to Go Where...How to Get Someone to Pay for the Trip of Your Dreams and editor of Expedition News a 16-year-old monthly newsletter that covers the adventure marketing world. A resident of New Canaan, Conn., he is a member of The Explorers Club, the American Alpine Club, and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. In January 2010 he was a chaperone on a students educational trip to Antarctica (studentsonice.com). Blumenfeld then explains that companies are not there to pay for your vacation. However, if you have a project that is bigger than yourself - a trip with a purpose - it is possible to generate cash or in-kind (gear) support. His talk is illustrated with over 40 photographs taken all over the world, including a selection from his recent Antarctic expedition.
