While we work with our hosts in Dublin, putting the finishing touches on all the pre- and post-TBEX activities for which you’ll soon be able to sign up, we wanted to give you an idea of what the schedule looks like. Here’s some general information about what’s going on when, so you can better plan your travels.

  • The TBEX conference itself is Thursday-Friday, October 3-4, 2013.
  • The TBEX opening party is on the evening of Wednesday, October 2, 2013. (The speaker reception will be immediately before the opening party on October 2.)
  • The FAM trips (“familiarization” trips, AKA press trips) for which you’ll be able to submit an application are from Saturday, September 28 through Wednesday, October 2 and then from Saturday, October 5 through Monday, October 7. The dates for each trip will vary. Again, participation on the FAM trips will be by application only. Our hosts will select the participants from those applications. Find out more details about the FAM trips and apply now – application deadline is August 16.
  • The day tours for which you’ll be able to sign up on a first-come/first-served basis are Tuesday-Wednesday, October 1-2, and then Saturday-Sunday, October 5-6. These do not require an application, but space on each tour is limited, so registration is required.

More information will be coming soon about the FAM trips and day tours so you can submit your applications for the FAM trips and sign up for day tours – so stay tuned!

There’s a table below that’s a quasi-calendar so you can see the schedule in a more visual form, too.
