The Travel & Adventure Show comes to Los Angeles February 18-19, 2017. The Mexico Report will be attending on Saturday, February 18 and we hope to see you there. Here are the top six highlights we are looking forward to experiencing:
- Travel Speakers: Andrew Zimmer, Peter Greenberg, Pauline Former, Rick Steves and Johnny Jet are just a few. Tip, if you know which one you really want to see, find out what time they are speaking and arrive early. These sessions fill up quick and it’s hard to hear in the overflow section.
- Travel Deals: If you are thinking about booking travel for spring break, summer or even fall 2017, this show is the place to find exclusive deals and show specials as most travel agencies, tour operators and hoteliers are coming to the show to share with you their best offers.
- Global Beats Stage: take a mental vacation and let the music and dance transport you a million miles away with cultural performances from Maui, Tahiti, Caribbean, Panama and more.
- Travel Tip Sessions: How to travel smart and pack right, how to visit three US Virgin Islands in one vacation, traveling in a time of disruption are just a few of the sessions available in several stages. Personally, I’m really looking forward to the guide to better travel photography by Ralph Velasco at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday in the Savvy Travel Theatre.
- Drawings & Prizes: Tourism boards, Convention & Visitors Bureaus, adventure companies and many others are offering drawings to win travel, air, hotel, adventure experiences and more.
- Taste of Travel Stage: Celebrated chefs dazzle audiences by preparing their specialty cuisine in a stadium style theatre connecting food with the destination experience.
