Tuesday, March 10
This is the single most important social event in the industry — everyone who’s anyone in travel goods is here — making it the ultimate professional mixer, and a critical networking event.
Festivities will begin immediately following The Show’s first-day closing at 5:30 p.m. with light hors d’oeuvres, an open bar and the chance to rub elbows, clasp hands and renew industry friendships.
Wednesday, March 11
Cheer on the travel goods industry’s most dynamic, accomplished personalities, help congratulate the winners, and recognize the people, companies and products that have made a difference in how the world travels.
The Awards Ceremony takes place immediately after Show close, at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 11. We’ll salute the recipient of the TGA Award, give recognition for outstanding altruism with the Community Service Award, and spotlight the most cleverly ingenious new travel items with the Product Innovation Awards.
Please join us as we applaud our industry’s best examples, and catch a glimpse of the items that are changing the way people travel — and likely to be lighting up the sales charts for 2015.
Many of Playluggage's colorful designs are inspired by tattoos. Their graphic designer, Kristjan Luiga, will be onsite in their booth, custom-designing a luggage skin with a special tattoo starting at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 10. The one-of-a-kind, handmade suitcase will be raffled off at the end of the day on Wednesday, March 11.

Travel Sentry Inc./Okoban SA
Come meet IATA, Okoban and Travel Sentry for a Q&A session to learn about the new IATA Cabin OK program. Cabin OK is both a common size for carry-on baggage and a service promise that approved bags will be allowed in the cabin – no need to use a baggage gauge at the gate. The program is designed to help everyone: Consumers will know which carry-ons will be accepted as carry-ons by lots of airlines, not just one, and airlines will be happy because this will simplify the boarding process and eliminate hassle and delays.
Travelsox invites attendees to come by their booth and get a free pair of Travelsox (a $15-$35 value), to prove how great your feet will feel by the end of the day. The only thing you have to do is put them on and wear them (you can keep your old socks)! While supplies and sizes last.
