TBEX TBEX brings together the creators, DMOs and brands re-imagining the travel industry. The Home Of Travel Creatives Slide

TBEX is the best conference that I have ever been to. And I go to a lot throughout the year. I do everything I can to learn, get better and be the best content creator I can be. I was very impressed on every level with TBEX.

I am a big fan of TBEX. I have attended every year since 2013. I have been a speaker, sponsor, co-presenter, panel moderator and regular attendee. I love the peer networking but most of all I love learning from speakers, attendees and destinations. In the world of social media marketing one is forever learning. Nothing beats learning from one’s peers and niche experts.

Whenever I’m asked by up and coming travel creators how they can earn more money or build their audience; I always tell them they should attend TBEX! It is the best conference to learn your craft, figure out how to monetize, network with other creators and meet new sponsors.
