TBEX, the world’s largest community of travel bloggers, writers, content creators and social media professionals, has announced Jerusalem as the location of its upcoming TBEX International 2017 meeting.

“Jerusalem was chosen as our first TBEX International destination because of its rich multi-cultural history,” says Patti Hosking, TBEX Vice President. “Geographically in Asia, but more economically and culturally aligned with Europe, Jerusalem is one of those special destinations that defies classification and is best explained as International. It’s a bucket list destination for many people, including bloggers, and we know that our attendees will find diverse experiences there. We’re going to see a lot of very special stories come out of our time in Jerusalem.”

TBEX holds annual conferences in locations across the world, drawing some 1,000 delegates including some of the most influential travel bloggers and leading digital content creators.

“This is an important opportunity to reach the top opinion leaders in the travel industry and travel media. Jerusalem offers conferences so much more than just the facilities for a successful event, but the opportunity to enjoy the city’s unique history, culture, culinary delights and nightlife,” says Ilanit Melchior, Director of Tourism at the Jerusalem Development Authority.

TBEX is joining forces with the Jerusalem Development Authority, iTravelJerusalem.com, and the Israel Ministry of Tourism for the March 20-22, 2017 event, to be held at the ICC Jerusalem International Convention Center.
