the Philippines

We gathered in Luzon and we explored the islands. We discovered enchantment in Caraga, tropical splendor in Palawan, and whitewater adventure in the Cagayan de Oro. We dined on Chicaron, Adobo and Lechón, we reveled in the Filipino culture, and we quickly fell in love with ‘The Pearl of the Orient.’ We discovered that over 7,000 islands make up the Philippines, but boundless stories define it.

We learned valuable information for mastering our preferred media and publishing platforms. We discovered proven methods for honing our craft and strengthening our brand. We gleaned advice and techniques from industry experts for capitalizing on a sound business strategy. That’s what brings bloggers, vloggers and social media influencers to TBEX, and  what keeps them coming back time after time.

But most importantly, TBEX is about the people. People like you.
