We have recovered from what was a whirlwind week with TBEX last week.

More than 600 of the world’s top travel social influencers gathered in Killarney to attend TBEX Europe, the largest gathering of travel bloggers, writers, content creators and social media influencers in Europe.

The highly influential group had a combined reach of 380 million travel fans and explored the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland’s Ancient East and Dublin City with bespoke itineraries and trips arranged by Fáilte Ireland.

We were lucky enough to host a Insta Walk on Monday and Tuesday with some of the attendees and we showed what the beautiful Killarney National Park has to offer!Insta Walk

There was speed networking, inspirational talks, panels on creative earning ideas and many more in the INEC, by some of the world’s top bloggers including Gary Arndt, Chris Christensen, Ciaran Blumenfield and our very own local Mike O’Shea.

Throughout the week we were treated to a drinks reception at Killarney house, a boat trip to Dromquinna Manor, fire throwers at Killarney Race Course and a Wild Atlantic Way Wrap up party at Reidys Bar.

We met some amazing people with some fascinating travel stories and everyone had such fantastic feedback about Ireland.

With over 3 billion twitter impressions generated globally in relation to TBEX we do hope that with all their sharing and retweeting, the story of Ireland and the product that we have to offer will entice the followers and fans of these social influencers to choose Ireland as their destination of choice.
