“Hosting TBEX North America 2017 was a truly unique opportunity where planners were not only concentrated on the event’s success in the eyes of their team, their sponsors and their attendees, but were equally, if not more so, focused on ensuring that we as the host city received every opportunity and desired gain from hosting the event. The outstanding team at TBEX worked tirelessly to fully understand and assist in sharing Huntsville’s story as a community and as a travel destination.” Leslie Walker, CHSP Convention Sales Manager, Huntsville/Madison Co.

“Working with the TBEX team was truly an experience of a lifetime for Vail Resorts. The passion and enthusiasm that they brought to the event was visible throughout the planning and execution of the conference. With over 700 attendees you could feel the progress being made and practically seeing the inspiration flying around, passing between attendees, speakers and sponsors. It was an honor for Vail Resorts and Keystone to host such an influential group of forward-thinking individuals and it was amazing to see the results happen instantaneously, with literally millions of social impressions and hundreds of blogs logged even before the weekend event was over.” Kelly Ladyga VP, Corporate Communications Vail Resorts, Inc.
