The Jerusalem Conventions and Visitors Bureau, under the direction of the Jerusalem Development Authority, announced on Monday that TBEX, a travel blog exchange, will hold their 2017 international conference in Jerusalem. TBEX is the largest conference and networking event for travel bloggers, online travel journalists, new media content creators, travel brands and industry professionals. Each year, TBEX partners with host destinations in North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific to bring the travel industry’s most creative minds together.“Jerusalem was chosen as our first TBEX International destination because of its rich multi-cultural history,” said TBEX vice president Patti Hosking. “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.”TBEX International 2017 will be held on March 20-22 at the ICC Jerusalem International Convention Center.
