TBEX North America

October 7-9, 2020
Lafayette, Louisiana

TBEX is the largest conference and networking event for travel bloggers, online travel journalists, new media content creators, travel brands and industry professionals. Each year, TBEX partners with a host destination in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific to bring the travel industry’s most creative minds together to learn, network and do business. This year TBEX has selected the heart of Louisiana’s Cajun & Creole country Lafayette, Louisiana as the host city for their North American conference that will take place October 7-9. The conference is expected to attract more than 700 travel bloggers throughout the United States and beyond.   

“We chose Lafayette for several simple but important reasons. We know this will be the first time many of our attendees have visited Cajun & Creole country and they are going to be overwhelmed by how much this city has to offer. The CAJUNDOME Convention Center fits the tech-centered culture of our community of travel content creators perfectly. Lastly and most importantly Lafayette Convention & Visitors Commission truly understand the impact of travel blogger content and how important this shift to new media is for their city. We think they are a perfect destination organization to showcase what TBEX is all about.” Rick Calvert, CEO & Co-founder of New Media Expo and TBEX.

“We are thrilled to welcome the TBEX North America to Louisiana in 2020 along with the hundreds of travel bloggers and online travel media that will be attending,” said Louisiana Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser. “While visiting, attendees will get a taste of all the ways you can Feed Your Soul with Louisiana’s unique culture, delicious fresh seafood, one-of-a-kind music, and beautiful outdoors. And as the home of some of the most friendly people in the world, they can expect the warm welcome you’ll receive only in Louisiana.”
