TNT’s Carol Driver said: “TNT is delighted to be on board with Traverse’s inaugural blogging conference.

“Through our social media platforms – including tntmagazine.com’s myTNT – we know how popular blogging is to our readers, so it’s an area we’re especially interested in.

“Traverse is going to a great event – and a fantastic opportunity for bloggers and anyone interested in social media.”

Michael Ball, co-organiser of Traverse, said: “To have one of the country’s biggest and most well-respected travel magazines and websites, as well as an internationally recognised brand, partner up with us for our first event is fantastic.

“So many people we know read the magazine and website, and we always knew that they’d be a perfect fit for Traverse.  

“As well as the print and online content TNT produces, the TNT Travel Shows are great events, attended by just about everyone.

“We know that Traverse won’t be on the same scale, but we how to bring the same professional and fun side to it that TNT manages twice a year.”
