TBEX North America 2014 Heads to Cancun, Mexico

 

TBEX North America 2014 will be held in Cancun, Mexico, at the beautiful Moon Palace  Golf & Spa Resort  on September 11-14th. Cancun’s beautiful beaches, natural beauty, culture and history, combine with the warmth of the Mexican people to make it a world class destination for travelers.

Cancun beach

You will love Cancun, the Moon Palace Resort, and the surrounding area. If you are blogging, podcasting, taking photos or video, you will find a wealth of editorial content in all travel niches. Whether you’re looking for active adventure experiences, or just relaxing on the beach or poolside, you’ll find plenty of options at TBEX North America 2014 in Cancun.

We are excited about sharing TBEX with partners and attendees in Latin America for the first time. Its convenient location in the Caribbean, with direct flights and easy international connections, make it a great starting point for multi-destination travel to and from the United States, South America, Central America, and the Caribbean.

Our Hosts

Our hosts for TBEX North America 14 are the Cancun Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Moon Palace Resort.

Cancun and other partners will be providing pre and post-TBEX day trips, FAMS, and other special events. Look for that information to be announced over the next few weeks and, like all TBEX events, plan to come early and stay late to maximize your trip to Cancun and Mexico.

Our Conference Venue

The Moon Palace Resort will be our venue for TBEX workshops and education sessions. The resort is located at the southern end of Cancun’s Hotel Zone, about 10 minutes from Cancun International Airport.

Hotels

Attendees staying at the Moon Palace Resort will experience a luxury all-inclusive experience that includes elegant rooms, gourmet meals, and premium spirits, along with a variety of included activities. Golf and spa treatments are also available (additional charge). Special TBEX pricing will be available for TBEX attendees and sponsors, with booking information available soon.

Of course, Cancun has hotels priced for every budget, and we’ll be announcing several options in the weeks to come.

The Program

We’ll have a full schedule of TBEX events, including half day workshops, educational programming, two sessions of speed networking, and plenty of great social events. We’ll also be offering in depth, multi-day workshops as well, so plan to come to Cancun early and stay late.

The call for speakers will go out in the next couple of days; look for a further announcement about that. We are a business-to-business event, so start thinking about what you can share with attendees that will help them learn more about blogging, growing their businesses, and how to become more productive.

Registration

Super early bird registration is NOW OPEN. Hurry, deadline ends May 29th!

 

**** UPDATE*****

Already getting some questions about this. The Opening Night Party will be September 11th. We have confirmed there will be day trips on 11th. We may add day trips on the 10th as well. We will update you as soon as we confirm with our partners in Cancun.

The main conference days are September 12 and 13, so your conference tickets will be for September 11 – 13.

We will also have a couple half day and full day workshops on September 14. There will be an additional charge for those workshops if you choose to attend. More details to come on those soon.

Comments

  1. Wah. We’ll be in Vienna at that time. I love Mexico.

  2. Sorry you can’t make it Suzanne. Vienna is a beautiful place to be.

  3. Wow! Good choice! Busy months ahead.

  4. wooohooo Ill try to squeeze this in between my trips, after al its only a flight away 🙂

  5. This is very tempting. I haven’t been to a TBEX event in years, so it’s way past time and I’ve never been to Cancun.

  6. At TBEX Toronto, I won a 3-night stay at a hotel in Playa Mujeres, 10 miles or so up the road from Moon Palace Resort. I think that will tie in perfectly with TBEX2014.

  7. Really wish I could join you, but will be with SATW in Iceland. We’ll have to find a member of SATW who can be there with you. Sounds fabulous!

  8. Oh! This sounds fabulous!!!

  9. One of my favorite areas of the world – I’m there at least once a year. If you’re looking for inland destinations to add on to #TBEX North America 2014:

  10. Really wish I could make it. Already booked my travels to France in September

  11. I am so happy to hear that TBEX North America will be in Cancun this year. Great choice with Moon Palace Resorts. I am looking forward to coming to Mexico.

  12. I’ve never been to TBEX so I don’t understand how this works. Is there someplace I can look up the total cost to attend….and what’s included?
    Thanks!

    • Michelle, the way it works is that you Register to attend the conference – right now (until the 29th of May) is the super-early-bird rate of $97 for bloggers – it will go up after that date. THEN you (on your own) book your airfare and room at the Moon Palace…you can save money if you double-up with someone else to share a room. The Moon Palace is an all-inclusive resort so all meals and drinks are included (along with some activities, but you’ll likely be busy attending conference sessions to partake in many of the resort activities). Hopefully there will be time in the schedule to enjoy the pool and beach!

    • Michelle – Trisha’s right, you set up each piece separately, which allows you to spend as much or as little as you want to suit your own tastes. You wouldn’t have to stay at Moon Palace either, but as a first-time staying at the conference resort will make it much easier for you to meet other people and participate in all the activities. Also keep in mind that the conference fee will include at least a few social events, along with the sessions, making it a really good deal. Often there are also locally sponsored events and discounts too, so you may want to allow extra time to take full advantage of being in such a great location. Have fun!

  13. It is during my second week of my last post secondary year, but I will talk with my teachers for the Thursday and Friday and hopefully I can make it out!

  14. I’m sure TBEX is negotiating huge discounts for us on the Moon Palace nightly rate – or there will be later shuttles to Cancun Hotel Zone/Downtown, because it’s a pretty pricey place and there isn’t much around it. 🙂

    • Daphnée Laforest says:

      Totally agree ! very expensive location !
      I can’t wait to know what will be negotiated for us 😉

    • Yes, it’s pricier than earlier TBEX venues, but keep in mind that it’s an all-inclusive resort, so all meals and drinks are included…..and depending on who you book through, in most cases your airport transfers are included too.

      • Trisha- even when I had a substantial corporate salary I never stayed at this type of resort. Not specific to Moon – it’s a great resort actually owned by a real Mexican family, not some huge conglomerate. All inclusives are not my thing, unless they are tiny dive atoll or jungle lodges. But, I know the area well and probably spent the equivalent of a night at Moon on 10 nights in Merida at a great hotel and local meals and a lot of tequila!

  15. Ah, decisions decisions! I was supposed to be in Germany for September…but beachside TBEX sounds so tempting!

  16. Having just returned from the Riviera Maya, I can say this is a great location and I can’t want to get back! I’m currently registered for Greece, but will now be attending Cancun instead. What is the best way for me to switch my registration?

  17. It was worth the wait! Love the location and can’t wait for more great TBEX networking. Went to TBEX in Toronto at the last minute. Loved it so much went to TBEX in Dublin. All fantastic events.

  18. Darn. I’ll be around Cancun in December, so can’t justify going there for TBEX this year. Maybe I’ll have to reconsider Greece!

  19. Excited for my first TBEX conference in Cancun! Too bad I can’t attend the Athens conference as well.

  20. I am registered for TBEX Cancun so I will be seeing many of you there.:) I was at TBEX Toronto last year and simply loved it! Can’t wait to experience TBEX again and all that Mexico has to offer!!!
