If you love writing about travel, you’ve probably heard of TBEX – the world’s largest gathering of travel bloggers, writers, and new media content creators. We’re thrilled to be welcoming TBEX-ers to Ontario at the North American Conference taking place June 1st and 2nd in Toronto!
When you arrive at TBEX you’ll find a special postcard in your registration gift bag. You can keep it for yourself, or drop by our table (Table TT 4) at the open marketplace to send it home to a friend with complementary postage provided by Ontario Tourism.
On the postcard you’ll find out more information about #OntarioWithLove, the special TBEX contest we’ll be running throughout the conference, which celebrates the creativity of Ontario artists by giving you the chance to take home a one-of-a-kind keepsake. Find out how you can enter here.
But first, we want to introduce you to the designer behind the postcard. Meet Steve McLeod:
