I wonder if one actually gets to go to all those events. Bloody nice lifestyle if one does.
However, my money is that the role involves "personalising" the official press kits (or similar), for at least for 90% of them.
Even still, for the remaining 10%....
Social influencers get a lot of nice benefits. Someone I know does have that status, and so gets a lot of nice things, like A380 first flights, featured by well known international airlines in the launch of their new first class suites, first flights on the luxury suite of a rival airline, etc. That said, he is a decent guy - he's not the sort who'd do anything so stupid like this journalist who crashed into the rider.
