A group of six renowned travel bloggers are behind the launch of the first association of travel bloggers in Morocco.
This first gathering of travelers and content providers in Morocco aims to promote the culture of travel on a larger scale in Morocco, establish a context of collaboration between professional bloggers and stimulate business collaboration between bloggers and the travel industry in Morocco and abroad.
The founding members of the association share a common passion for travel and a proven experience in creating travel-related content, as well as the ambition to provide a dynamic environment and a favorable ground to develop travel culture in Morocco.
