Great Vacations Travel Expo Presented by AAA
Each January, travel-industry professionals and vacationers descend upon downtown Columbus for the Great Vacations Travel Expo to mingle, participate in interactive activities, and exchange travel information. Visitors have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with travel experts and learn how to book transportation by air or sea, how to find hotel accommodations within their budget, and how to request time off from work (wink at the boss while asking). Select exhibitors also offer exclusive discounts on vacation packages, and tourism savants will take the stage to speak about their own vacation tips and tricks.
