This June, Toronto will be hosting the Travel Blogger Exchange (TBEX). http://tbexcon.com/canada/.
A thousand bloggers, tweeters, writers and photographers from around the world will be in Toronto to share Ontario’s story through social media. Every year, cities across North America compete for the chance to host this event, and Toronto is the winning city for 2013!
As part of their ‘From Ontario with Love’ contest, the Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership Corporation (OTMPC) partnered with the Ontario Craft Council to find makers who celebrate Ontario and/or Canada in their works and have a knack for engaging and sharing their craft practice with the public through social media. Nine makers were chosen through a call for entry, and their works will be gifted to TBEX attendees who enter the contest by blogging about their Toronto visit.
The works by the chosen makers will be on display at The Guild Shop in Yorkville District in Toronto. from May 30 to June 9, 2013. (www.Craft.on.ca)
