The show opened up at 10:00 am and then the most popular speaker, Rick Steves, was scheduled to speak at 10:15 am for 1.5 hours. 15 minutes after the show opened?! By the time we got to where he was speaking, there was only SRO and quite a few of us had to stand for an hour and a half! Bad planning - speaking too close to the doors opening and not enough room for everyone to enjoy his presentation.

Groupon ticket prices were great! The booths were well organized by countries or regions so you could speak with several vendors all in a row to gather information. Great show!

What You'll Get

Unprepared travelers are prone to rookie mistakes, such as forgetting to bring pants or slapping a monarch with the left hand rather than the right. Glean worldwide knowledge with today's Groupon: for $7, you get one-day admission to the Travel & Adventure Show in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center (up to a $15 value) on either Saturday, March 12th or Sunday, March 13th. Tickets are good for one day of admission; you can purchase an additional Groupon to gain admission both days. Children under 16 get in for free.

The Travel & Adventure show dishes up a smorgasbord of globetrotting attractions, highlighting destinations around the world with cultural performances, regional cuisine, and hands-on activities. Shimmy your way to the Global Beats Stage to survey the rhythmic landscape of the globe and explore exotic songs and dances plucked from paradisiacal parties. To experience travel with more than just your eyes, head to the hands-on activities and ignite your tongue with the Fiery Foods Challenge, where the hottest cuisines from cultures around the world face off in the thunderdome of your mouth. Adventurous travelers douse burning with a swim in the free Scuba pool and then get a preview of athletic destinations with the indoor rock climbing wall and zip-line that whisks riders across the show floor. Cultural spectators can become participants with hair braids and henna tattoos at the Cultural Pavilion, and would-be wayfarers can glean worldly wisdom from dozens of travel experts and tour operators.

Featured presenters include expeditionist-extraordinaire and penner of eponymous guidebooks Pauline Frommer as well as the trio of authors behind The Lost Girls, with book signings following each presentation.


The Travel & Adventure Show in Washington, D.C. has received mentions from Adventure World magazine and Examiner:

  • In turn, I was able to speak with representatives from Morocco, Panama, Belize, Mongolia, Thailand, China, Costa Rica, Belize [sic], and more. In talking with them, I realized this show is ideal for countries to directly connect with the consumer and provide incentives, resources, and options for travelers even in a tough economic climate. – Ty Stevens, Adventure World magazine
