SAN DIEGO, Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, TBEX — the world's largest gathering of travel bloggers — announced the host city for its 2013 European conference. "We are very excited to have chosen Dublin, Ireland as the destination for our event in October, 2013," says Rick Calvert, CEO of TBEX. "We'll be hosting hundreds of travel bloggers and travel industry professionals from all over the world for two days of comprehensive educational programming and engaging networking events. Our delegates will be sharing their unique Dublin discoveries and experiences with the world online. We couldn't have chosen a better destination, as Dublin is the European headquarters of companies like Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Zynga and Twitter; it's a thriving social media hub. 2013 is also the year of The Gathering in Ireland and TBEX is proud to be a part of it."
Minister of State for Tourism, Michael Ring TD, today welcomed the announcement, adding: "This is a great achievement for tourism and Ireland. Thanks to the efforts of Failte Ireland, we have won a conference which will deliver up to 450 travel bloggers to our shores in October 2013. This could not happen at a better time. By that time, The Gathering will be in full swing and I can guarantee that all who attend will experience Ireland at its best and most lively."
"Dublin is a perfect location for international travel bloggers to visit and explore," says Dave Cynkin, CMO for TBEX. "In addition to the technology aspects, delegates will be learning about Dublin's thousand-year-old history, culture and arts, and the beautiful surrounding area before and after the event. Content creators at TBEX provide a true online window to the world. They will be sharing their perspectives and experiences in Dublin with readers, online communities and social networks across the globe. At the 2012 European TBEX event in Costa Brava Spain attendees generated over 200 million online impressions. We fully expect to shatter that record in Dublin".
"With its history, architecture and culture providing a backdrop to modern city life, Dublin offers something for every travel blogging niche and every travel blogger budget," says Mary Jo Manzanares, Conference Director for TBEX. "Failte Ireland with support from Tourism Ireland is rolling out the red carpet to welcome our attendees to their home, and I'm very excited for October."
