SARAH GRAY
J.L. Childress


“As a first time exhibitor, The 2014 International Travel Goods Show provided a platform for J.L. Childress to introduce our best-selling juvenile travel products to a brand new industry. We had a number of great meetings that we hope will lead to the expansion of our products within the travel goods marketplace. We also got to know some wonderful manufacturers who welcomed us with open arms into their industry. Overall, our first experience at The 2014 International Travel Goods Show met and even exceeded our expectations!”


DAVID STOLLER
Suitcases & More


“Whether sharing stories of ‘the ol’ days’ or the excitement of innovation, The International Travel Goods Show is my yearly feeding of both. Plus, where else can I satisfy my sweet tooth to analyze and critique what my vendors are doing! The show is a mandatory visit every year, I’ve only missed two in my 30 years in the industry.”


SCOTT APPLEBEE
Travelpro International


“The International Travel Goods Show allows us the opportunity to showcase all of our new products in one location to a large group of retail buyers in a very cost-effective way. The Show creates the environment to effectively launch new products and get feedback from key retailers.”


GUY PAQUETTE
Bagot Leather Goods/Luggage Plus


“This is a big industry but it’s also really small. The social aspect of the show is hugely important. Making and fostering contacts is imperative to the success of our operations.”


BARBIE HALL
WallyBags


“As a regular exhibitor WallyBags couldn’t be any more thrilled about our continuing success at The International Travel Goods Show this year in Phoenix. Being able to network and meet with buyers all in one place is a rewarding experience and it is only one of the many reasons we display each year. We look forward to seeing everyone again at The 2015 Show!”


COLLEEN COE
AAA Oregon/Idaho Travel Stores


“I’ve been attending The Show since the late ’80s and it’s the best place to see trends in the travel goods industry. Having all of the products in one place gives you a perspective that you can’t get without coming to The Show. You also get to reconnect with longtime friends who genuinely care about each other. Hugs are common and make you feel valued and part of the travel goods family.”


CHUCK WEISBART
It’s…In The Bag!


“Great show! The best ever! Thank you.”


SALIM E. AWAD
The Travel Halo


“I want to thank you for all your help at The International Travel Goods Show in Phoenix. The response to our product has been so great that we have sold out of our entire inventory!”


ALFRED CHEHEBAR
Genius Pack


“We would have not been able to see the growth rate for Genius Pack without TGA. Thanks for another successful year!”


BRIDGET MUSCAT
Allett Inc. The Original Thin Wallet


“After years of selling Allett’s thin wallets to a selection of travel stores, we decided to finally exhibit at The International Travel Goods Show. The Show served as a great platform to meet retailers and press. We were able to generate a great deal of ‘hype’ at our booth through the available marketing channels offered by TGA. We had successful meetings and our show follow-up has been paying off immediately.”


RANIA KFURI
Free like Birdie


“Free Like Birdie was so happy to exhibit at The 2014 International Travel Goods Show. It is a great opportunity to learn about new companies with innovative products like ours and connect with key buyers. The organizers are wonderful. Our company enjoyed an excellent experience. We look forward to future participation!”


ROGER DILLON
Ricardo Beverly Hills


“All of us at Ricardo Beverly Hills would like to thank everyone who took part in making The 2014 International Travel Goods Show a great success. We were very pleased with the outcome of this year’s Show. We received a lot of traffic and were quite busy throughout the event. We made new contacts, received invaluable customer feedback and were able to connect with several important clients about our new products and our latest innovations. This event was also a great platform to strengthen our relationships with our domestic and international customers. We had a wonderful time. Thank you for making this Show a huge success. We look forward to seeing everyone again in Las Vegas next March!”


TONY SPIELBERG
Red Label Accessories/Rawlings


“We had a great show. The TGA staff was spectacular and we look forward to working together in the future. Thanks for hosting.”


LAURA BALLEREAU
Briggs & Riley Travelware


“Thank you for all you do for me, Briggs & Riley and Solo. TGA 2014 exceeded all our expectations and goals. Year after year, The International Travel Goods Show proves to be the ideal forum for our team to learn about industry trends and to meet with specialty retailers to introduce new products, discuss their needs and challenges, and brainstorm ideas that will help grow their businesses. From a production perspective, the convention center was perfectly situated across from The Show hotel and The Show floor was easy to navigate because it was so thoughtfully laid out. The Show planning process gets better every year and the actual convention evolves to be smoother, smarter and stronger. Great job by the TGA team.”


LINDA FLANAGAN
Flanabags


“The TGA Phoenix Show was another big success for Flanabags. The International Travel Goods Show has become our best source for qualified retailers. We plan to continue our association with TGA into the future.”


CORALIE LINDVAY
DELSEY


“Ever since we have been distributing our luggage in the U.S., DELSEY never missed one single Show! The TGA Show sets the tone for the travel goods industry and is definitely the place to be for retailers to preview our latest collections. At no other time can a retailer see almost all luggage products under one roof.”
