TBEX North America 2018 in Finger Lakes Wine Country, NY

We met for TBEX North America 2018 in one of the country’s most unique regions where vineyards wind effortlessly through lush hills sprawled between 11 glacial lakes tucked into the rural countryside of upstate New York. We dined on a multitude of savory farm-to-fork meals and connected over craft beer, award-winning local wine, and artisan cheese. And we soon discovered that this 9,000 square mile region is home to more lush forests and sensational waterfalls than one could possibly imagine. It also 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 mile of New York’s Finger Lakes Wine Country.

Corning Museum of Glass

We gathered at the Corning Museum of Glass where magnificent glass-blown pumpkins and delicate harvest fruits welcome the coming season. We partied in the Gaffer District and at Watkins Glen International where we reveled in exhilarating pace car rides on the undulating 3.4 mile track. And we met and learned in an awe-inspiring venue where a storied 150-year history of glassmaking and innovation has led to the Glass Age. Where glass technology at Corning Enterprises has transformed the way we receive and transmit data through fiber optics, spawned powerful advances in the medical sciences, and produced Gorilla Glass an impressively durable shield that is installed on 6 billion devices worldwide.

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.
