The deal with the Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board, who will be hosting the event, was signed in Spain last week by Blogworld’s CEO & Founder, Rick Calvert, who said:
We are thrilled to have the Costa Brava Tourist Board hosting TBEX Europe 2012 in Girona Spain! This is an amazing city in the heart of the beautiful Costa Brava region of Spain. The conference will feature first class educational sessions and the one of a kind networking opportunities our community has come to expect from TBEX. But they are going to find some amazing content in Costa Brava as well.
I would add, we were blown away by the hospitality of the Costa Brava team and how excited they were to host this event. They are definitely one of the leading destinations in the world when it comes to blogger outreach. It would be hard to think of another destination that is as well prepared to host TBEX than Costa Brava.
Jaume Torramadé, president of the Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board said:
We are delighted to host TBEX in Girona, Costa Brava. I think it’s a win-win-win relationship, between TBEX, bloggers and Costa Brava. This event is another step forward in our marketing strategy. Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board will organize pre and post blog trips to the event, so bloggers can discover new experiences in the area and be inspired to post new content. We are excited to take them on an adventure they will never forget.
In the past,TBEX has been primarily located in North America – the next one is in Keystone, Colorado, June 15 – although there was a ‘TBEX Europe’ event in Copenhagen in 2010 and plans for a second European TBEX in Prague in 2011, which later had to be dropped.
Jaume Marin,Marketing Director for Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board is also really pleased about welcoming TBEX back to Europe:
This event is another step forward in our marketing strategy. We have believed from the beginning in blogtrips, and in turning bloggers into digital amabassadors. We don’t want just to organise a blogtrip and that’s it. We believe that bloggers are our loudspeakers, with more audience and credibility around the world. So we keep investing in ways to make Costa Brava part of their story.
Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board will organise pre and post blogtrips to the event, for them to discover new experiences in our area. I genuinely believe that they will post their experiences during this event, and we will try to make it an experience that they will never forget.
TBEX are using the #TBEX hashtag for TBEX Europe “to keep the chatter all in one place”. More details about speakers, the programme and tours will be posted here as they are released.
So, TBEX in Girona in Sept – are you up for it?
