The 2016 Boston Globe Travel Show, one of the largest consumer travel shows in the country, has set an official date: the 11th annual event will take place February 19-21, 2016 at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston.
Showcasing the culture, cuisine and sights of both exotic and domestic destinations, The Boston Globe Travel Show regularly draws more than 20,000 attendees looking to book travel. In 2016, the three-day event will feature more than 300 travel exhibitors and suppliers, representing every segment of the travel industry and offering detailed information on trips to every region of the world.
The 2016 Boston Globe Travel Show offers attendees the opportunity to expand their horizons with travel pavilions that showcase destinations around the world. In addition to individual destinations, the show pavilions feature cruise specials, adventure travel, vacation rentals, volunteer travel, vacation planning and packages and much more. Other vendors will feature the latest in luggage offerings, technology and travel gear.
From legendary travel writers such as author Patricia Schultz to Robert Rose, host of Raw Travel, attendees will learn about new and exciting travel opportunities ranging from eco-tourism to budget vacations, luxury escapes, vacation rentals and much more. Those interested in booking a vacation immediately will find great deals in the “show-only” specials offered by many exhibitors.
Food is an important part of travel and some of New England’s best chefs will be on hand to showcase cuisines from around the world. Visitors to the culinary stages will learn unique cooking techniques before having the opportunity to sample dishes from all regions. The show also will include cultural seminars, music and dance presentations and a craft beer pavilion, making it more of weekend destination than simply a trade show.
According to research conducted by The Boston Globe, more than 40% of Boston Globe readers spent more than $5,000 on their last vacation. 36% of readers traveled outside the country more than 3 times in the past three years, proving that Boston residents are active travelers.
“The Boston Globe Travel Show is always huge success for Visit Central Florida. It is a great venue for us to promote our destination as the perfect location for family-friendly vacations,” said Joni Allen of Visit Central Florida. “We are looking forward to the 2016 show.”
The 2016 Boston Globe Travel Show is sponsored by JetBlue, Cruise Travel Outlet, Turkish Airlines, Foxwoods Resort Casino, Visit Central Florida, Sagres Vacations, League of NH Craftsmen, The Bethel Inn Resort, Collette, New Hampshire Office of Tourism, and Poland Spring Resort.
