The Travel & Adventure Show series concluded its 2024 season in March having appeared in nine US cities during its programame including: Atlanta, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Denver, Washington DC, Dallas, the Bay Area, and, new to the Series, Phoenix.

As travel demand in the US recovered to pre-pandemic levels, the organisers reported record attendance at the shows, with travellers eager to learn about new destinations, take advantage of show-floor deals and receive expert travel advice and meet with celebrities such as Rick Steves (pictured), Andrew McCarthy, Peter Greenberg and host of Netflix’s ‘Somebody Feed Phil’, Phil Rosenthal. 

The show made its way to Phoenix for its debut year at the Phoenix Convention Center, where 9,000 attendees got to meet with representatives from over 250 local and international exhibitors, such as main show sponsors Tourism Fiji and Go Touch Down Travel & Tours. 

Chicago’s longest-running travel show returned this year to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center with Rick Steves’ Europe, Visit Loudoun and South African Tourism as headline sponsors. The show welcomed over 16,000 attendees and more than 350 exhibitors for a weekend of travel inspiration.
