Travel Bloggers Greece (TBG) participated in the first Travel Bloggers Exchange (TBEX) Asia 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand held October 15-17, almost a year after the TBEX Europe 2014 event was held in Athens.
The first Greece-based travel blogger network joined over 600 travel bloggers and online writers worldwide from 50 countries to exchange knowledge and ideas, and learned about Thailand — discovering Thainess.
“TBG’s members are committed to improving their blogs and helping to promote a positive image of Greece”, said Elena Sergeeva, co-founder of TBG and publisher of travel blogs Passion for Greece and PassionforHospitality.
“Events such as TBEX are a great opportunity to gain new insights on the latest travel blogging trends, learn new practices and to connect with professionals from around the world.”
The three-day event included pre- and post- TBEX tours, breakout sessions and networking opportunities. Educational sessions delved on topics such as search engine optimization (SEO), travel writing, videography, photography and social media.
To continue TBG’s international reach in the blogging industry, Rebecca Hall of Life Beyond Borders blog and TBG founding member, will represent the professional networking group at the World Travel Market (WTM) 2015 in London to take place November 2-5.
Established in early 2015, TBG is the first professional network of travel bloggers established in Greece. TBG members have attended familiarization trips to Greek destinations such as Tzia, Zakynthos and the Montanema Handmade Village near Lake Plastiras and have participated in tours and restaurant reviews in Athens. Their social media posts, travel writing and photography, shared online as a result of each sponsored trip and event, aim to promote tourism in Greece.
