"TBC Asia was a perfect introduction to Sri Lanka…" TBC Asia was a perfect introduction to Sri Lanka and a high quality learning experience into one. During the press trip, we took a sip of the country and that sip has made me thirsty for more. During the conference, we learned about the needs of the Asian tourism industry and are now better equipped to work with them and promote their destination in the future. Sofie Couwenbergh
"TBC Asia has been my favorite conference" TBC Asia has been my favorite conference in my six years of travel blogging. The pre-conference tour provided numerous instances where I could speak one-on-one with other top travel bloggers and industry leaders which allowed me to receive invaluable advice I would not have been able to receive in any other environment. The conference sessions were some of the most actionable presentations I've ever seen and gave me several months worth of work to do in order to improve Living the Dream for my readers. Finally, Sri Lanka as a whole is one of the most amazing countries I've ever visited and was the perfect location for a travel blogging conference. I will be back. Jeremy Jones
"I had a fantastic experience at TBC Asia..." I had a fantastic experience at TBC Asia and staying with Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts all around the country. The fantastic itinerary they set and fellowship with top travel bloggers from around the world made this an exceptional once in a lifetime experience and I had a fantastic time and made some life long friends and connections. Thanks to Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts for sponsoring this wonderful Sri Lanka experience. Noel Morata
"TBC Asia turned out to be not only my favorite travel bloggers conference…." TBC Asia turned out to be not only my favorite travel bloggers conference in 2014, but also the best trip I've taken all year. When I traveled to Sri Lanka, I had no idea that it would turn out to be one of my favorite countries in the world! The conference itself had excellent speakers on topics that helped me improve my blogging skills and networking with travel industry professional was an integral part of TBC Asia which resulted in several invaluable contacts which I ended up working with on my four-week exploration of Sri Lanka after the conference. The pre-conference tour of Sri Lanka that Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts had put together for us was a well-organized trip that allowed us to get to know the very best of Sri Lanka: historical and cultural landmarks, wildlife, scrumptious food and UNESCO World Heritage sites. Overall, I found TBC Asia the perfect mix of interesting conference talks, networking with travel industry and other bloggers, seeing enough of Sri Lanka to be able to produce content for my blog and to get an insight into the local culture from our local guides and the TBC Asia organizers. I wouldn't hesitate recommending participating in TBC Asia to anyone – both travel industry professionals and bloggers – and hope I'll be able to experience another TBC Asia conference. Dani Heinrich
"TBC Asia was one of the best trips and conferences I have had the honor of attending" TBC Asia was one of the best trips and conferences I have had the honor of attending. Our whirlwind tour around Sri Lanka was an amazing glimpse into the history, culture and diversity of the country. It allowed us to better understand the nation and all it has to offer for foreign visitors, as well as get an idea of why more and more tourists are flocking to the island nation. Needless to say I am very much looking forward to TBC Asia 2016! Derek Freal
"I had high hopes before attending TBC Asia…." I had high hopes before attending TBC Asia in Sri Lanka last November that this conference and everything surrounding it would be above the average but, three months later, I can say all my expectations were exceeded in so many ways. In fact, those days I spent in this gorgeous country blew my mind and provide me with new tools, contacts and strengths to go on pursuing my dreams back 'home'. Thanks so much for inviting me!

I am beyond grateful to have attended such a conference where it consisted of the perfect blend of networking and mentorship, as well as an enlightening introduction to the country of Sri Lanka. The speakers were absolute leaders in their field and the information they presented was invaluable in helping me push my blog to the next level. Also, meeting with the tourism industry representatives clarified the marketing needs for their destinations and gave me plenty of helpful connections for the future. I can't forget to mention touring through Sri Lanka, which has been one of my favorite travel highlights. Climbing to the top of Sigiriya Rock was amongst the most memorable experiences I have had and what a treat to be able to rest my head at the cushy Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts after the feat!
