Bringing Together the Creators, DMOs and Brands re-imagining the Travel Industry Since 2009


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.

The TBEX History

TBEX was born in 2009 when an email went out to six travel blogger friends about meeting up in Chicago and talking about travel blogging. (Back then we just called it Travel Blogging.) Something magic happened and 250 people showed up!

Today TBEX brings together hundreds of Creators, DMOs and brands that are re-imagining and redefining the travel industry. Just like the beginning, we build lasting business connections and life long friendships. We meet, network and learn the latest trends, strategies and tactics from each other and the world’s leading experts.
