With as many fabulous cities as there are in Europe, why in the world would you keep going to the same area over and over and over? Don’t get me wrong, I love Spain. I’m here now. But jeez. 3 travel blogging conferences in pretty much the same place is just silly.

I’m sorry Mandy, this will be our second trip to Costa Brava. We were there last three years ago and there were only 330 attendees. Our last TBEX Europe event had more than 800 attendees. So most of our community has not been there. I explained why we were going back to Costa Brava / Catalunya in our closing keynote in Athens. but in short, we love the place and the tourist board! We think they are one of if not the best in the world when it comes to working with bloggers. Second they were the first city to host us since NMX got involved with TBEX and they asked us to come back in a future year after we had grown the event. Based on our first experience we believe we owed them and our community an encore.

We have completely new experiences, day trips and fam trips for our attendees and of course new sessions.

I can’t speak for any other related event in the area. I didn’t know there was one.

I’m happy that TBEX is returning since I didn’t attend the first time. I’m sure there are a lot of people who feel that way as well. And if it follows the amazing time I had in Athens, it’ll probably be even better than the first visit.

Can someone tell me if these trips include sharing a room or do you get your own? I’m more used to writing print – we get our own rooms on fams, but it might be different in the blogging world.

Generally speaking, single rooms, unless participants request a shared one.

Wow, what an amazing assortment of trips! I’m going to have to do some research to narrow it down to three top picks from all of the tantalizing choices. Kudos to the team in Catalunya for coming up with them.

It looks like a great opportunity, but “unfortunately” I’m in Indonesia and I still stay here for few months to come. I’m sure other bloggers will enjoy these free tours!

Oh no! It’s too late for registering 🙁 Is there any way to still book a spot on one of the trips though?
