You asked. We answered
. While TBEX '09, TBEX '10 and TBEX '11 were all announced for N. American locations, Europe was being sorely neglected. Thanks to our presenting platinum sponsor Momondo
, we're heading to Copenhagen, Denmark
this November. Register Now>>
So what can you expect from TBEX Europe
? Well first off, you can expect great workshops and speakers on all things new media and travel, as usual. But we're working with our local contacts and sponsors to ensure that you also hear about what's unique in the travel blogging industry worldwide. And of course in-depth discussions about the business of travel blogging, including SEO, Monetization and Building a Brand.Register>>
has grown very fast, very quickly. While we'd love to do only warm weather conferences, it's not possible with a full time staff of three avid travelers. November for TBEX Europe
gives us a good break between conferences (TBEX '11 is in June
). Heaven help us when TBEX Asia starts up! November 4-6 is also a great time that doesn't conflict with other conferences
. We want to make sure we enhance the travel blogging community, not compete with it.Why Copenhagen?
ere are a lot of reasons, starting with the fact that it's beautiful and used to hosting conferences like TBEX. And did you know that the people in Denmark are the happiest in the world? But seriously, here at TBEX we need to give full credit to our presenting platinum sponsors. These are the people who step up BEFORE there is a conference to promote. For TBEX Europe, that is Momondo. Because we have a small team, we rely heavily on our presenting sponsors to secure a location, assist with hotel rates and flights, not to mention find great places for our bloggers to visit. When a company or organization is willing to do this, we're excited. Momondo and the city of Copenhagen have been super helpful in helping TBEX get moving.http://www.momondo.com/City/Copenhagen/CPH/Default.aspxWho's Involved?
