TBEX is the world’s largest gathering of travel bloggers, writers, and new media content creators and last week saw Dublin host their 2013 European Conference here.
TBEX is a community of more than 6,000 member including many travel bloggers and writers and others connected with the travel blogging, writing and content creation industry. People attend the conference not only to make new contacts in the industry as well as new friends but to taste the culture and see the sights of the country hosting the now world-renowned conference. And writing about travel experiences – whether it’s for work or pleasure, can be a great way to boost your international SEO efforts online.
Different tours took place as part of the conference. Attendees chose tours that included visiting The Guinness Storehouse, The Old Jameson Distillery, attending a new Irish dance production called ‘Heartbeat of Home’, taking the apparently “way better than expected” Dublin Ghostbus tour, The Wild Wicklow tour and visiting the cities most famous university and home to the Book of Kells – Trinity College. They also checked out all Ireland has to offer in art, design, fashion and music and the number of blog posts written about the experience just a week since it ended is tribute to the wonderful time so many people had.
“I’ve attended TBEX for three years and each year I get more and more out of the experience. It’s because of the sessions and people who attend the conference that I’ve been able to make my travel blog a full time business. It’s the only must-attend event on my calendar and I can’t imagine a year without attending the best travel blogging family reunion in the world.”
