This is the second time Thailand will host the Travel Blog Exchange (TBEX), after it hosted the first Asian edition of the show in 2015, when the event in Bangkok drew more than 680 participants from around the world and generated resulting exposure to over 142 million people.

The “Diversity of the South: Phuket and Beyond” concept of TBEX Asia 2022 reflects the new chapters of Nature, Food and Thainess, including precious art, cultural diversity, a variety of destinations and activities, and Southern lifestyle, particularly that of Phuket.
