The show, celebrating its 7th year, will allow visitors to experience (according to their website,) "authentic travel experiences, snap up the deals, win trips and giveaways, and be entertained and delighted at this amazing travel extravaganza. You'll hear travel tips from the experts including travel legends Andrew Zimmern, Samantha Brown, Pauline Frommer, Patricia Schultz and more. Experience ziplining, dive in the scuba pool, and see cultural performances."
This year, the show is sponsored by the Taiwan Tourism Board and will also feature a "fiery foods challenge" - inviting guests to "take their taste buds to the limit, sampling mouth-watering recipes from around the world."
According to show producer and CEO of Unicomm John Golicz, the show is expected to reach record-breaking attendance numbers, with 25% of those sales coming directly from social media outlets! Our very own guest blogger & travel photographer Ralph Velasco (left) will be giving a presentation about how to 'Take Better Travel Photos' as well. There's really something for everyone, whether you are a foodie, travel enthusiast, or "just browsing" for your next destination.
This show is held annually in the cities of Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Washington DC, Dallas, and Atlanta. Find the one nearest you and be sure to check it out! Stay tuned for photos from this weekend's show, as I will be attending!
