Go big. Travel Goods Showcase big.

When it comes to reaching travel goods professionals, nothing is bigger than Travel Goods Showcase. And no issue gets more exposure, or reaches more people, than the Post-Show issue that receives bonus distribution to travel experts, travel writers and other media outlets. And it enjoys the longest shelf life, as it's kept as a year-long reference and product resource by travel media professionals and retail buyers alike. That's right – you can put yourself in the biggest issue of the year, and at half the regular price – but a deal like this won't last forever. Ad space reservations must be booked by Friday, April 18, with artwork due Friday, April 25. Contact Cathy Hays, 877-842-1938, x-707, to reserve your space and extend your reach with exposure in the biggest new product issue of Travel Goods Showcase.

Travelzing at The 2014 International Travel Goods Show [GO TRAVELIZING]

Jeff Broman shares, "I attended the 2014 International Travel Goods Show to find out about all the latest and greatest travel products. I admit that I have an addiction to travel products and have a hard time finding something I do not already own. At least that is what I thought until I attended The Travel Goods Show and found a whole bunch of new and exciting products."

Cacinda Maloney writes, "The International Travel Goods Show is set-up to debut all the latest travel gadgets that you will need (or want) to fly around the country (or in my case, the world) in style (and comfort). The theme of The Show appeared to be lighter luggage, the fancy spinner wheels, better travel pillows and devices and four-point backpacks. Also, a lot of the latest in technology has infiltrated the travel market as well. Without further ado, I would like to show you a few of the gadgets that I found interesting."
