Travel and Vacation Show
More than 50 countries show off more than 190 travel and vacation exhibits within the glass-surrounded floor of the Ottawa Convention Centre for the Travel and Vacation Show's 19th year. Travel agencies, tourism departments, and adventure-tour organizers from across the nation and abroad tune visitors in to their area's culture alongside representatives from various European, Asian, African, and South American embassies. A sea of colourful exhibits plastered with photos of landscapes and culture interweave with the aromas of worldly cuisine as executive chefs from Aruba, Turkey, and Newfoundland demonstrate their multicultural recipes and dole out samples. Among the exhibits—which also feature Canadian provinces and U.S. states—dance groups perform and ice and produce carvings stand on pedestals as a monument to regional creativity and theatrical-leaning grocers.
