This week hundreds of travel bloggers, writers, editors, and PR people are descending on New York City for the 2010 Travel Blog Exchange conference.  In addition to sponsored networking events, a host of informal gatherings are springing up in the days leading up to TBEX.

To ensure you can keep up with all the publicly announced TBEX meetups, I’m going to share them here, and make updates as information is given.

If you’re hosting a TBEX-related event and would like to see it listed here, please write me or tweet me @rtwdave.

    You rock! Really needed exactly this for my planning.

    BTW, I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure the Matador meet-up was canceled so everybody could enjoy the other Saturday night festivities.
