DENVER, CO: The fourth annual Travel and Adventure Show held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, February 22-23, 2020 saw record-breaking attendance. With headline speakers, cruise, hotel, and destination providers, as well as informational booths, the enthusiasm for domestic and worldwide travel seemed stronger than ever.
The most popular speakers included Rick Steves, Gosh Gates and Pauline Frommer who provided the large crowds the most up-to-date and relevant travel advice. Steve’s books, in particular, are a common sight in Europe with travelers looking for the best destinations and deals and his shows.
Visitors wound their way through the various isles where they could interact with representatives from the sea and river cruises, airlines, and hotels as well as domestic and international destinations. This was the first time that Switzerland Tourism was at the show and their green screen allowed people to take photos of themselves in various venues around the country.
Some of the more popular information booths included the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority which also represents some of the smaller but interesting locations such as Primm, Boulder City, Mesquite, and Laughlin. A site called Travel Your Tree offers genealogy heritage and cultural tours.
Tours by Locals feature vetted local guides in 60 countries. Sardinia ZonaBlu Tours provides excursions to discover the longevity secrets of Crete, one of the healthiest islands in the Mediterranean.
Additional shows scheduled throughout 2020 include Atlanta, Washington DC, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Dallas.
