The 3rd Annual Vancouver International Travel Expo was by all accounts a great success. Aisles were busy as visitors chatted with exhibitors. Exhibitors were pleased with the quality of the audience and visitors commented on the wide variety of travel options on display.
Elaine Dixson of Sahara Adventures commented “The Vancouver International Travel Expo provided us with an excellent opportunity to showcase our Morocco tour business to both travel agents and potential travellers. That was a great combination for us, considering that everyone who came to the show was motivated by an interest in travel…
In an exit survey, 84% of people asked said they were planning a trip of 7 days or more in the next year.
Visitors’ comments included: “We thought we knew what we were looking for when we came to the show, but all of a sudden we have so many new options to consider!”, “Loved the dancers, we’ve already started planning our trip to Indonesia!”, “Very informative presentation…Tahiti here I come!”, “That tent on the roof thing (Editor’s note: JUCY RV Rentals) was neat, can’t wait for next summer!”.
The Main Stage drew big crowds for the music and ethnic dance performances and exhibitor presentations.
Plans are well underway for the 4th annual Expo which will be held in the same location (Vancouver Convention Centre, East Exhibition Hall B) on Saturday, September 28, 2019.
