TGA Postpones The Travel Goods Show

In light of recent conversations with members of the TGA community, the rapidly-spreading Omicron COVID variant, related supply-chain and staffing issues, and travel restrictions, the TGA Board of Directors has decided to postpone the 74th Travel Goods Show — previously scheduled for February 27–March 1, 2022 — until 2023.

TGA Chairman of the Board Cliff Ensley states, “Our industry faces significant challenges right now, and the decision to postpone The Travel Goods Show this year was not an easy one. We do so in the best interests of our exhibitors and attendees. As the travel goods industry rebuilds, so will our Show. Our focus remains on the health, safety, and profitability of our members and partners at all times.”

In the meantime, TGA will continue to offer product-sourcing resources for retailers via its digital publication, Travel Goods Magazine, and the HUB, its online marketplace. To stay up-to-date on future events and activities, please visit travel-goods.org.

Thank you for your commitment to The Travel Goods Show and to our industry. We look forward to seeing you in person next year at a fresh and robust Travel Goods Show.
