Travel Bloggers: Win a Trip to TBEX Toronto

You already know how valuable TBEX can be for a travel blogger. The knowledge and networking opportunities at the conference can transform a newbie into the next big thing in travel blogging.

The problem is that the trip can be expensive for cash-strapped bloggers. If you don’t have a sponsor or thousands of dollars in monthly ad revenue, you might not be able to afford the trip.

That’s why WeHostels has partnered with Webjet to send one lucky blogger on a free trip to TBEX Toronto.

Keep reading to find out more about the prize and how to enter.

The Prize

One travel blogger will win:

  • Travel Blogger Pass to TBEX, the world’s largest gathering of travel bloggers, writers, and new media content creators.
  • Free accommodations at Hostelling International Toronto. More info on HI Toronto below.
  • $500 flight voucher from Webjet to help you get to Toronto.

How to Enter

To enter, write a post on your blog about the most interesting person you’ve ever met while traveling.

He or she could be a blogger who inspired you to start writing, a traveler you fell in love with, or a local who treated you to dinner.

  27. I saw the Dalai Lama!
    Here’s how I explained TBEX to my readers: “TBEX is to travel bloggers what The Dalai Lama is to Buddhism – it’s a conference with workshops and lectures about how to better at what we do. Bow to Buddha for me, or just wish me luck, will ya?”
