TBEX Europe 2017

Killarney, Ireland


October 3-5, 2017

Killarney Convention Center/INEC

Hello TBEX and welcome back to Ireland – it’s been four long lonely years without you but you’re back at last…


We know we have a HUGE reputation to live up to after the mighty #TBEXDublin 2013 event and we sure are up for the challenge! From October 3rd to 5th we’ll whisk you off to the magnificent South West of Ireland, to Killarney with its incredibly beautiful countryside. The town is adjacent to Ireland’s oldest national park and is brimming with history, heritage and action packed activities. But fear not those of you with the lesser octane souls; there are plenty other enjoyable activities that we are planning like the epic Irish pub crawl! This together with its world class hospitality will ensure that TBEX Killarney 2017 is one of the most memorable conferences EVER!

So come on over – we might be a small island but you’ll find we’re jammed packed with hidden gems, steeped in stories, blessed with breath-taking landscapes and full of friendly and fascinating people. Peel back the layers of history and culture, uncover our hidden untold stories. These stories are waiting to be told by you – the TBEX delegates – some of the best story tellers in the World!
