Hello TBEX Friends,

As you gather this week in Cancun we hope you reflect fondly on last year’s conference in Toronto. You certainly shared your experiences here at the time: 30,000 tweets (we counted), 500+ blog posts (we counted those too).

And look what happens. People take notice. Just this week Vogue Magazine named Toronto’s West Queen West the #2 “Coolest Neighbourhood in the World.”  (http://vogue.cm/1xu2J89 ). Many of you were there. In fact the Queen West preBEX tours were the most jam-packed and popular, from the arts to the food to the famous Graffiti Alley tour. If you missed it or just want to explore more of Toronto’s neighbourhoods, we hope to see you again soon.

In the meantime, while I can’t be with you in Cancun this week, Team Toronto is there led by Vanessa Somarriba (@vanimartina). It was a privilege to host you in Toronto last summer and we raise our glasses to the TBEX community for telling wonderful stories to and from every corner of the world.

Salud!

Andrew
