(Princeton, New Jersey) The Summer issue of Travel Goods Showcase is on its way to mailboxes, and will paint a vivid picture of The 2012 Travel Goods Show for readers.

This past March, The Travel Goods Show experienced a record-setting year in Las Vegas. The sold-out Show floor and exhibitors' attractive, lively booths was an indicator that the travel industry is thriving and strong. Many manufacturers choose to debut their newest and most exciting items at The Show each year, and the three packed exhibit days serve as a true first peek at innovative products and trends to come.

Whether you were busy visiting booths, strolling the floor, or unable to make the trip to Las Vegas, open the pages of the Summer issue of Travel Goods Showcase to experience The Show in its entirety.

The Summer issue brings you a complete breakdown of The 2012 Travel Goods Show in a variety of must-read features, including:
