From dramatic cliffs and pristine beaches to rugged mountains and charming villages, Donegal has something to capture the heart of every traveller. Our rich cultural heritage, with ancient castles, traditional music, and a vibrant food scene, is sure to leave a lasting impression on our TBEX guests.

TBEX will generate significant economic benefits for Donegal, as well as raise our profile as a must-visit destination."


TBEX: A Community of Passionate Travel Creators

TBEX is more than just a conference; it's a community of passionate individuals who share a love of travel and storytelling. By hosting TBEX, Donegal is not only opening its doors to a global audience but also inviting a wealth of creativity and expertise to our shores.
