img_9074We’re excited to announce that Digital Nomad Robert Reid has been confirmed as a keynote speaker for TBEX Athens.

Robert Reid is the Offbeat Observer and the current Digital Nomad for National Geographic Traveler. His writings have also appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Lonely Planet, CNN.com and ESPN.com. He often picks unusual subjects for trips — counting moustaches in Siberia, using Billy Joel lyrics as a guidebook to New York’s Long Island — and keeps up a decidedly home-made 76-Second Travel Show on his site, Reidontravel.com.

We’re happy to be able to tempt Robert back to the TBEX stage. His keynote presentation will touch on how travel bloggers can become reputable sources and, perhaps even more importantly, the responsibilities of becoming an “expert” in an era of burgeoning user generated content.  In his own inimitable style, Robert will provide information and recommendations, with plenty of funny stories woven in. Don’t miss it!

We hope you’ll join us for TBEX Athens on October 23-25th, 2014. See you there!
