I was just over on the TBEX ’11 Web site and noticed that there are only a handful of tickets left for the year’s pre-eminent travel blogging conference. If you blog about travel and haven’t taken the leap and booked tickets yet, now is the time to do so!
I went to the first TBEX in Chicago in 2009 and loved it. It was a small and intimate event and a great way to meet some fellow travel lovers. Nomadic Matt was there, as was Gary Arndt from Everything Everywhere. (Truth be told, I had no idea who Gary was when I met him. I introduced myself, he shook my hand, and then he immediately turned around and walked away. Dissed!)
This year’s event looks like it will be much larger–500 people!–where I feel like 2009 was more like 100 people. But if you love travel and can grab a cheap flight to Vancouver in June–I used my United Airlines miles to swing a free ticket from Chicago–it’s definitely worth going to. Act fast though because as of this writing, there are only 13 tickets left!
I’m definitely interested in checking out some great restaurants in Vancouver, so if you’re a fellow blogger on your way to TBEX and are interested in a great meal out somewhere, please get in touch.
