We’ve been putting the finishing touches on a couple of announcements – and an invitation – about TBEX at NMX, and we’re finally ready to show you what’s behind the curtain.

But before we do, in case you’re confused about that second acronym in the first sentence, a quick note about NMX. New Media Expo, or NMX (formerly known as BlogWorld Expo), is the preeminent conference and trade show for bloggers, podcasters, web TV and video series creators. It spans multiple genres and attracts attendees from over 50 countries. This year’s event will be held January 6-8th at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and registration is still available. NMX is also the parent organization of TBEX, so TBEX will be represented at the NMX conference, too.

Now for the invitation.

We’ll be having a TBEX meet up, tweet up, casual gathering, party – whatever you want to call it – and we would love to see you there.

We don’t have the bar to ourselves, so space is limited. We’ll be sending out invitations to those travel bloggers and travel industry representatives who are registered to attend NMX. However, if you’re going to be in the Las Vegas area (not attending NMX) and are interested in joining us on Monday night, just leave a comment on this blog post telling us and we’ll get your name added to our list. There will be complimentary beverages available to those who RSVP* and get to the party early, some contests and prizes, and an overall fun evening. If you’re a travel blogger, food blogger, lifestyle blogger, work in the travel industry, or want to spend a fun evening with people who love travel, get this date on your calendar and we’ll see you there.

Please note that like the space at the bar, the budget is limited, too – this isn’t an open bar event. When the complimentary beverages are gone, they’re gone – but you’re more than welcome to purchase additional drinks directly from the bar. And, naturally, to tip your bartenders generously.

* NOTE:  Use this link to RSVP.

So – will we see you there?

And hey, those of you who are already familiar with NMX and want to learn more about TBEX, you’re in luck. TBEX will have a table at NMX, and Jessica (our Community Manager) and I will be available for scheduled appointments during the speed dating event. Come find us at table 67, or make a speed dating appointment. We’d love to tell you what we’ve got lined up for our upcoming conference in Toronto this June (as well as TBEX Europe in Dublin this October), and how you or your company can get involved in the world’s largest travel blogging conference.

See you next week at NMX!
