We met for #TBEXOstrava2018 in the land of stories where timeworn villages are tucked into dells surrounded by lush, rolling hillsides. We connected over craft beer, sweet local wine and artisan cheese, and dined on Czech fare while traditional harmonies from Bohemia and Moravia drifted in the breeze. And we soon discovered that this former Nazi-occupied member of the Eastern bloc who gained its freedom in the Velvet Revolution, has a history and culture that’s as unique and captivating as the people who call it home. Yes, we quickly fell in love with every magnificent kilometer of eastern Czechia.

We gathered in Ostrava where Olympic champion Hussein Bolt has blessed the city’s highest geographical point, an artistic glass structure rising from an old blast furnace. We partied under that awe-inspiring tower, learned the tango, and danced to the sounds of electro swing DJ jams. We met where a long history of mining and industry at Lower Vítkovice has been transformed into a contemporary, multi-purpose facility which received over 1.5 million visitors last year, and hosted several hundred bloggers in 2018 for the first TBEX conference held in Central Europe.

We also learned – valuable information for mastering our preferred media and publishing platforms. We discovered proven methods for honing our craft, marketing our content, and strengthening our brand. We gleaned advice and techniques from industry experts for capitalizing on a sound business strategy. And we connected with brands in collective partnerships. That’s what brings bloggers, vloggers and travel marketing influencers to TBEX, and what keeps them coming back time after time.
