Thailand to host Asia’s first Travel Blog Exchange in October
The Thai tourism industry is set to significantly expand its social media profile when more than 1,000 bloggers and online writers worldwide convene for the first Travel Blog Exchange to be held in Asia between 15 – 17 October 2015, at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre in Bangkok.
The TBEX Asia 2015 is being jointly supported by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) and Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA). It will provide a unique opportunity for Thailand to showcase the “2015 Discover Thainess” campaign and allow Thailand-based bloggers to network with their worldwide counterparts.
Mrs. Juthaporn Rerngronasa, TAT Deputy Governor for International Marketing (Europe, Africa, Middle East, and the Americas) commented, “Travel bloggers have a very strong and loyal following on social media. We are truly proud that some of the world’s leading bloggers have chosen Thailand to host their first TBEX in Asia.
“As each of these online writers has an average of more than 10,000 followers, the TBEX Asia will help us promote a positive image of Thailand and attract more young generation visitors from around the world.”
