TBU Rotterdam is a Travel Blogger Conference that this 2013 is held in Rotterdam, Holland from 16th to 19th May. I bought my pre-destination ticket to attend but unfortunately I cannot make it, so I thought why not give away my ticket so someone else can go?

I am quite a new travel blogger, and my first conference was last year TBEX in Girona, and I was not going to attend as I thought it was not worth it, as I was so new...Lucky I met Mrs O around the world and she convinced me to go and it was the best thing I could have done.

So if you are an experienced travel blogger you probably know what TBU is about and if you are newbie just like me I encourage you to try it out. What can be better than getting a ticket to TBU for free??

It must be 20 years since I was last in Rotterdam. Then it was one of the scruffiest, crime-ridden cities in Europe. I hear it has changed massively. I'd love to check it out!

Let's cross fingers so you get the chance Steve!! Good luck!

I want to attend my third TBU conference to continue developing my blogging skills. There are experts that Oliver brings in that help me every time. I (although I have had this blog for three years) an still a novice at things like SEO. I always enjoy hanging with fellow bloggers even though I am twice the normal age! I also want to tour the cafes!

What a great giveaway! I actually just discovered TBU myself. I'm a blogger newbie (my blog's been up for 6 months now) and I'd love to attend TBU for several reasons: - although I'm from Belgium, I've never visited Rotterdam before. It would be awesome to be able to go for blogging purposes! - I've never attended a blogging conference before and just like you I'm hesitant on getting a ticket because I'm wondering if attenting will be useful/fun/interesting... And when I'm doubting like I am now, my decision usually ends up being a negative one - for several reasons, I haven't been able to take a trip yet this year. The TBU conference would be a great spring getaway! - As a blogging newbie I still have so much to learn and I'm hoping TBU can teach me some of the things I need to know - I'd love to meet other bloggers and industry professionals - my photography and video skills are so much as non existent. The workshops at TBU would help me A LOT! - I would be so amazingly grateful!:) - and so on and so on :-)

I am glad that you signed for the competition here!! I attended to TBEX last year and I was a newbie too, still am...Good luck for you Sofie. If you need anything let me know, you can contact me, that's what blogger mates are for!

Sofie commented over 7 years in response to Meritxell

Thanks! That's really kind of you. Who knows, if I get lucky I might contact you for some tips on how to prepare my TBU attendance:-) In the mean time I'll just stick around. Have a nice day!

Bon dia Meritxell, I have found your blog looking for inspirations to start my own Blog and it was really usefull. I especially liked how you link your blog to facebook and I would still like to know where the picture of Barcelona’s street with Umbrellas has been taken :) I am very new at Blogging too and didn´t even know about Travel blogging conferences. But reading your post about TBEX in Girona, it seems to be a great way to get started with fresh ideas and meeting blogging mates so I would love to enter the competition for the ticket :) I am also in Love with Barcelona and aways try new restaurants and tea shops (my favorite being Caj Chai :) so give me a shoot if you want to hang out sometimes :) Many Thanks and keep on with the great work!

Bon dia Amandine, Thank you for your kind comment, I really appreciate. If you would like to enter the competition, please comment in here saying why you would like to attend to TBU. Bear in mind that you must be a travel blogger, read tbu website for requirements of the attendees. I think your blog must be some months old at least. The photo of the umbrellas is from Olot, la Garrotxa, it was an instagram contest. Hope to see you around here.
