Less then 24 hours from now, I’ll be heading off to Vancouver to participate in the third annual Travel Blog Exchange. I’ve been attending since the beginning and my, how it’s grown! It started off with about 100 travel bloggers in one room for most of the day. Last year it grew a bit with more bloggers, more sponsors, and sponsored events.
This year, there are even more travel bloggers registered, concurrent sessions, organized day trips and pre/post-travel blogger FAMs. TBEX, you’ve become quite the machine and it’s been a fun ride seeing you grown.
