It’s time to plan for The Travel Goods Show, February 27 to March 1, 2022, which will be held alongside ASD Market Week. Both events will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center and both require a Buyer badge for free entry.

While TGA has no on-site registration fee, if you plan to check out ASD Market Week, we recommend you register ONLINE before the show. Avoid paying ASD’s $55 onsite fee by indicating you would like a complimentary ASD badge during the online registration process. TGA and ASD have separate badges to be picked up onsite, each at their respective registration counters. You will receive separate emails from TGA and ASD with onsite badge pick-up instructions.

For those that do not qualify for a free badge, there will be a $1,000 per day fee to access the exhibit hall.

Once you have registered, you will receive a confirmation email from The Travel Goods Show.

See you in Las Vegas!

Neither party is preparing for a strike or a lockout, contrary to speculation in news reports. The parties remain focused on and committed to reaching an agreement.” However, the two sides did not agree to extend the current contract until a new agreement is reached. TGA is working with others on a multi-industry letter pushing for an indefinite extension of the current contract until a new deal is reached. Members of Congress also continue to weigh in. These efforts build on the June 8 TGA letter urging President Biden to engage in the West Coast port labor negotiations. Many believe the negotiations will turn on the issues of pay and the future of automation at West Coast ports. ... See MoreSee Less
