Apply For TBEX Europe 2016 FAM Trips Around Sweden


The application process for TBEX Europe 2016 Blogger FAM trips is now open. These FAM trips start after the conclusion of TBEX. The dates for these multi-day overnight trips vary, so please look at start and end dates carefully before applying.

There are 24 trips to choose from, each one highlighting a part of Sweden, and are listed in geographical order from north to south. These trips provide a chance to explore more of the beautiful country after enjoying your extended time in Stockholm.

All transportation and accommodations while on the FAM trip will be covered. You are responsible for hotel nights before and after the trip. We recommend planning your departure no earlier than the day after the FAM trip concludes as return times are variable. Participation in the full FAM trip is required.

These trips are by invitation only following an application process.

Do not apply for a Blogger FAM trip until you have read and understood the following information as all non-compliant applications will not be considered. Take time to thoroughly review the trips and submit only ONE application.

    • You must be a blogger or other content creator to apply. No industry representatives are allowed on these trips. No spouses, partners, children, or friends may accompany the blogger on these trips.
    • You must be registered to attend TBEX to apply for these trips.
    • All participants in the Blogger FAM trips must be 18 years of age or older.
    • If you blog as a couple or group, each blogger must apply separately for the trips. There is no group or couple application form. Please understand that space on these trips is limited and there is no guarantee that you can be accommodated on the same trip. Many couple bloggers opt to participate in different trips in order to expand the editorial content that they acquire.
    • It expected that content will be created as a result of participation in these FAM trips. While no specific deliverables are required, we would expect some commensurate level of editorial and social content to result.
    • If you applied for a FAM trip before TBEX sponsored by VisitStockholm, you may still apply for one of these post FAM trips sponsored by VisitSweden.
    • You may select a first, second, and third choice of trip.

The deadline to apply for these trips is April 15th, 2016, 5 pm Pacific Time.

At that time, the application process will be closed, organized, and submitted to our hosts in Sweden. They will go through their selection process and advise us the names of bloggers selected to participate. We will extend invitations to bloggers just as soon as we get this list.

We understand that you need to make travel plans and arrangements, and everyone involved in the process is committed to expediting the process to the extent possible.

  1. Question. I am a late sign up for TBEX in general because of an unfortunate itinerary change ended up making the conference possible. I see the deadline to apply for FAM trips was in April, but I’m wondering if it’s possible to be added to any type of “wait list” in case anyone can no longer attend? Cheers, Jessica

      There is no way to extend the application process. However, you can meet with the sponsors of the various trips while on site to see if there is something available.
