Another goal achieved 🙂  TBEX Manila 2016 here i come. I am registered on the TBEX Asia 2016 conference in Manila, the capital of the Philippines from October 13th to 16th 2016.

When i found out the venue for this years TBEX Asia I had no hesitation in registering. This is one of my favourite countries and lately i have spent alot of time there discovering for myself some of its secrets.

The Philippines has so much to offer everyone of all ages, from pristine beaches, island getaways, waterfalls, caves, mountains, volcanos, and of course its unique cuisine.

I am excited for the Philippines. The country may now start to be recognised for the fantastic backpacker/tourist destination that it is.

What is TBEX ?

The TBEX website describes the event as “The world’s largest gathering of Travel Bloggers, Writers, New Media Content Creators, and Social Media Savvy Travel Industry Professionals. ”

TBEX is an important event in the travel blogging calendar. Every year TBEX holds an event on three continents, Europe, Asia and America, and its a chance for travel bloggers to meet and connect with Sponsors, Social Media Experts and their travelblogging peers. It’s a great chance to do some networking and even some business.

My travel blog is still finding its niche in the blogging world and I am eager to make it work full time. Registering for TBEX Manila 2016 is a step in the right direction and hopefully will help with my progression towards being a full time Travel Blogger.
