Travel blogger conferences provide a way to connect offline with your fellow bloggers, keep up-to-date with our ever evolving industry, discover new travel products and services, as well as form relationships with travel brands who may be interested in your publication services.

I’ve compiled a comprehensive list of travel blogger conferences (big and small) around the world that are being held in 2020. I’ve also included select events for bloggers, vloggers, social media influencers, and content creators that aren’t specifically for the travel industry, but whose conferences may be of interest.

🔍 Perform Your Due Diligence

I’ve never been to a travel blogger conference before, so this post isn’t written to endorse any particular conference or debate the merits of whether or not you should attend one. I compiled this list because I’d personally like to attend at least one conference in 2020, and I published my research to make your life easier in case you’re looking for the same info. As Travel is Life grows, I think that it’d be both fun and valuable to connect with other bloggers in my industry, especially members of Travel is Life Tribe (our online private community of travel bloggers), many of who attend these events.

Travel Blogger Conferences in December 2020

Currently there are no travel blogger conferences or trade shows listed for December. This could be because December is a busy month for people in general with the holidays so many conferences aren’t held, and also because December (at the time I’m writing this) is 14 months away, so events haven’t been announced yet. Sign up to my Travel Blogger Conference E-mail Updates below to be informed of changes/updates to the events listed above and/or new listings.
