TBEX Central FL Chapter Launch Party is Go For Launch!

 TBEX Central FL Chapter Launch Party is Go For Launch!

Calling all Central Florida Travel Bloggers…

I’m excited to share that there will be a Central Florida Chapter of Travel Blog Exchange (TBEX) hosting a Launch Party/ Tweet-up this December! Event details are listed at the bottom of this post.

What is Travel Blog Exchange?

Simply put, TBEX is a worldwide social network for travel bloggers. It hosts annual travel blog conferences in Europe and North America and offers a community that supports travel blogging and the travel industry.

Who can join the Central Florida TBEX Chapter?

Our chapter serves travel bloggers (independent, corporate or otherwise) in the Tampa, Orlando and Daytona Beach Regions, but any travel blogger who is in town is welcome to attend our tweet-ups and our upcoming Launch Party. If you’d like to become a member, join the Central FL TBEX Group here.

What’s the Benefit to Becoming a Member of TBEX?

Sure there’s the obvious benefit, it’s fun! But even more importantly, you’ll have the ability to network with other professionals in the field, enhance your blogging skills and become an influential voice in the Travel Blogging Community in the Central Florida Region.

Now for the good stuff…
