I’ve only been the Conference Director for TBEX a short time, but I’ve already learned some big lessons that can be easily summed up as: Pulling all the details of a conference together is a lot of very HARD work!
From the myriad onsite details, to sponsorships, to registrations, to speakers and programming, it’s one big ball of interrelated things that need to get done and everyone on the BWE team has a part in pulling it together. As everything falls into place and is confirmed, we’ll be announcing news here on the TBEX blog, as well as getting it out via our social media accounts. If you’re not already connected with us, you can find us here:
- TBEX website and blog (keep up to date by signing up for the conference newsletter)
- Our Facebook Page
- Our Speakers Facebook Group (speakers only)
- On Twitter @TBEXEvents
- Our hashtag #TBEX12
We have the first round of emails out to travel bloggers inviting them to speak, and industry representative speakers will come next. And then we’ll be doing some tweaking and modifying, and sending out another round of invitations. It’s a bit of a domino effect as we put everyone and everything into place.
The program is set up with four travel blogging tracks and one tourism track. Of course, attendees are free to pick and choose from among the various tracks, creating a program that gives them the best opportunities to learn, network, and have fun.
Here are the tracks:
- The Tools of Travel Blogging
- The Art of Travel Blogging
- The Business of Travel Blogging
- Beyond the Blog: The Business of Travel & Tourism
- For the Industry: Travel, Tourism, & PR
Session and speaker announcements start coming out tomorrow!
Have you registered yet? We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
