TBEX 2020, Lafayette Louisiana, USA – travel blogger conference


(graphic whooshing) (upbeat music) – Well, we’re very excited to announce that TBEX 2020 North
America is gonna be held in the happiest city in
America, the heart of Cajun and Creole country, Lafayette, Louisiana. That’s gonna be taking place October 7th through the 9th, 2020. So Lafayette, Louisiana, is known for our food, music, and culture. We’re like a little
world within ourselves, and so what you guys can
expect whenever you come down is a little dose of all
of that, but what we’re really excited about
is that this conference is gonna end with one of
our largest festivals, Festivals Acadiens et Créoles. It’s three days, 60 musicians, six stages. There’s a food demonstration, food court, all of the above. It’s really a Cajun and Creole
experience like no other, and we cannot wait to
share it with you guys. So the great thing about
Lafayette is that we do have a regional airport with
direct flights coming in from Houston and Atlanta,
so transportation should not be a problem once you get there. It’s gonna be very
beautiful around October. It’s always what I like to
call windows-open weather. It’s gonna be very breezy,
and then that goes perfectly with what we got planned for
you guys after the conference and before the conference. You’ll be able to get a
little dose of everything. We’ve got food tours,
we’ve got cultural tours. If you like music, we’ve
got plenty of that. And don’t worry, if you
don’t know how to dance, there’s plenty of people
waiting in line to teach you. So Festivals Acadiens et
Créoles is been going on for about 45 years now,
and it’s exploration of the Cajun and Creole
cultures, both music, the food, and the culture,
so it’s a blending of six different stages where
60 of our local musicians perform Cajun and Zydeco and Creole music. And then, we have a cultural tent where there’s a cultural exchange with some of our cultural bearers, where you can basically ask questions. There’s an interviewer, and
then the other great thing is that if you’re a musician,
please bring your instruments because we also have a jam
tent so you can practice some of the music that
you’re seeing onstage, led by some of the people
that you’ve just watched. So Lafayette, we have a really
thriving downtown right now, so it’s very great, you can get
a little dose of everything. If you’re into art or museums, we got plenty of that, plenty of food. You know, we got plenty
of nightlife if people are interested in that,
and of course, live music goes with everything, so we
have plenty of that served up. You can go to LafayetteTravel.com,
and then I would also just suggest checking out our blog. We’ve got tons of travel
ideas if you’re looking for different things to do. We’ve got plenty of suggestions. We have a host of writers
that write for us, and so they know what you guys like, and they’ll be able to serve it up. We can’t wait to see you in
the happiest city in America, Lafayette, Louisiana, for
TBEX 2020 in North America, taking place October 7th through the 9th. ‘Laissez les bons temps rouler’
