Today we enthusiastically announce the destination for TBEX North America 2015, along with a new, companion TBEX event.
TBEX North America 2015 will be held in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, on October 28-30th, 2015. The venue will be the Greater Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center, located at 1950 Eisenhower Boulevard, Ft. Lauderdale.
Embraced by the Atlantic Ocean, New River and a myriad of scenic inland waterways, Fort Lauderdale truly lives up to its designation as the “Venice of America.” Blessed with over 3,000 hours of sunshine each year and pleasant year-round ocean breezes, world-famous Fort Lauderdale Beach offers premier opportunities for recreation, relaxation and enjoyment. The picturesque Riverwalk serves as the cornerstone of the City’s arts, science, cultural and historic district which features the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Museum of Discovery and Science, Museum of Art and Old Fort Lauderdale Village and Museum. Las Olas Boulevard has gained international acclaim as Fort Lauderdale’s centerpiece of fashion, fine dining and entertainment.

Immediately following TBEX North America 2015 will be a new event, TBEX at Sea, October 31-November 7, 2015. Our venue for this niche event will be onboard Royal Caribbean’s beautiful Oasis of the Sea.
Oasis of the Sea is one Royal Caribbean’s most innovative and imaginative ships, featuring the first-ever neighborhood concept where everyone can find their unique experiences in one of seven distinct onboard districts, including: Central Park – a public space combining nature and nautical; Boardwalk – dedicated to family, fun and featuring the new and entertaining AquaTheater; and the Royal Promenade – the heart of many Royal Caribbean ships, that’s now bigger and better than ever.
The Oasis of the Sea will depart Ft. Lauderdale on October 31st at 4:30 pm, with ports of call at Nassau, Bahamas, St. Thomas, USVI, and St. Maarten, returning to Ft. Lauderdale in the morning of November 7th.
This event is ideally suited for bloggers in the following niches: cruising, family travel, luxury travel, couples travel, adventure, and baby boomer travel. Sessions will be designed as advanced, indepth workshops suitable for experienced bloggers, and will be held on days when the ship is at sea. There will be special TBEX events onboard as well as free time to enjoy all the amenities the ship offers, or just to kick back and relax. Port time will be available for shore activities and excursions at your option.
Registration for TBEX at Sea 2015, to be held on the Oasis of the Sea, will open on February 23rd. If you are attending TBEX North America 2015, there will be no additional registration fee, you need only to book your cabin at the low TBEX rate. Friends and family are invited to book cabins at the same low rate, making this a great getaway option as well.
