We enjoy going to the show each year and this year was no exception. Just the right size of venue (small) to visit all the vendors we were interested in. Not too crowded at all. Picked up some good info for new vacation ideas.

Went specifically to learn more about France and Portugal only to learn there were no booths on those countries. Was pretty disappointed and surprised, especially to see booths on Cornwall and Smith Falls. Not sure if I would attend again....

This year's show was better than 2018, in that it had many more exhibitors and a greater choice of destinations. Excellent !

About The Travel and Vacation Show

At the 24th annual Travel and Vacation Show, visitors can walk around the world in a single day. At least, that's the way it feels. With 190 exhibitors from 50 countries spread across Europe, Asia, Africa, and every place in between, the convention puts guests in touch with vacation spots from around the globe. Whether they want a rugged outdoor adventure or a week spent lazing on a tropical beach, guests can plan their dream trip with tour operators, travel agencies, and representatives from the world's grand resorts. There's even a special emphasis on vacation cruises, with reps from trusted cruise lines including Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Norwegian, and Viking on hand to answer questions and share knowledge.

When they're not planning their next adventure, guests can also take advantage of the shows cultural programming. Cooking demos and celebrity chefs cover topics ranging from olive oil to Korean cooking, and travel seminars share insights from seasoned wayfarers.
