The Cancun Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) and Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort will host the TBEX North America conference September 11 – 13, 2014.
“This year’s choice of Cancun and the treasures of the Caribbean is very exciting for the TBEX community,” commented Rick Calvert, CEO of NMX Events, producers of TBEX. “Cancun’s renowned cultural and adventurous experiences, spectacular scenery and warmth will create a wonderful background and lots of editorial content for attendees.”
The Cancun CVB, along with Palace Resorts officials, have worked diligently with the TBEX team to create the best possible experience. “As the host destination, we want to show visitors and their readers the variety of experiences travelers to Cancun and Moon Palace can expect, including the destination’s culture, gastronomy, pristine beaches, renowned service and world-class entertainment options,” said Jesus Almaguer, CEO of the Cancun CVB. “We are honored to be this year’s host for TBEX North America 2014.”
TBEX is one of the most sought-after and in demand events of the global tourism community, which gathers an international group of more than 1,000 bloggers, travel writers, content creators / contributors, agents and professionals of the tourism industry that are intensely active in social media. TBEX’ host cities receive enormous and immediate visibility through all online platforms for social and professional networking (blogs, podcasts, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Flickr, Google +, etc.), which aggregate hundreds of millions of views, reports and posts, before, during and after the meeting.
Cancun was recently named the #1 summer travel destination by Orbitz and Fly.com, and is continuously evolving to provide its millions of yearly visitors more than just pristine beaches. TBEX will serve as a platform to showcase Cancun’s ample tourism offer, which includes Five Diamond dining experiences, the new Maya Museum, the world-renowned Underwater Museum, an abundance of natural wonders like cenotes, and more.
The TBEX conference will be held at Palace Resorts signature property, Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort. The AAA Four Diamond Award recipient is located on Cancun’s tranquil south shore, nestled between 123 acres of tropical foliage and secluded white sand beach. Comprised of three luxurious sections – Moon Grand, Sunrise and Nizuc – Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort recently completed a 100 million dollar enhancement
project which included renovations and upgrades to guest rooms, lobbies, refreshed meeting space, restaurant upgrades and more.
Moon Palace also created exciting new amenities and attractions including a FlowRider® Double wave simulator, the resort’s nightclub, Noir, a dolphinarium, a new kids club, “The Playroom,” Wired Teen Lounge, and an authentic English bar known simply as, “The Pub.” One of the brand’s most impressive additions is the new Moon Palace Arena, a 140,000 square foot convention center comprised of meeting and exhibition space that blends form and function. The new venue consists of multi-functional space including eight versatile meeting rooms (approximately 11,000 square feet each) capable of hosting up to 10,000 guests at one time.
The property offers guests more than 2,400 waterside and garden view accommodations including golf villa suites. Recognized as Cancun’s premiere entertainment resort destination, Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort has hosted world-renowned artists such as Shakira, Enrique Iglesias, Usher, Cirque Dreams Rocks, The Beach Boys and Ricky Martin.
“As the largest property in Mexico, both in size, meeting and event capabilities, Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort offers an idyllic backdrop for TBEX 2014,” said Gibran Chapur, Executive Vice President for Palace Resorts. “We believe the conference will provide a showcase for Moon Palace’s unprecedented, high caliber offerings, and we look forward to showing the attendees of TBEX just how Palace Resorts is redefining what an all-inclusive can and should offer.”
TBEX takes place over the course of three days, during which a series of meetings, educational seminars and presentations with the participation of internationally renowned experts, social media influencers and celebrities take place.
