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.
