Every year, the Travel and Adventure show returns to New York City as one of the biggest travel conferences and shows in the United States at the Javits Convention Center. Professionals and travel lovers engaged with destination representatives, tour operators, and travel providers domestically and globally, offering travel ideas and inspiration. Airlines, tourism boards, hotels, cruises, and more were at the event, ready to explore the world.
The increased interest in travel highlights that travel is making a huge comeback in a post-pandemic world. There were over 21,500 people at the show, with over 350 exhibitors and 850 travel advisors, and over 3,000 travel trade and media members. These people are interested in traveling locally in their communities, throughout their home countries, and outside their countries to new cultural destinations.
The Beauté Study staff were interested in talking with various states and countries to seek answers about beauty-centered and wellness-centered tourism. For example, countries like South Korea and Iceland have signature spas and beauty treatments like saunas that people far and wide travel to yearly. Different states like Maine and Arizona are getting into wellness retreats with glamping, and private yoga retreats too.
Depending on the regions of interest, more tourism is reopening for guests worldwide to visit and experience the culture. Airlines are joining the tourism boom with direct flights from major US cities like New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, and more. For example, the Guadeloupe Islands have reopened for guests in the Caribbean with direct flights from New York and Miami to the island on Jetblue. The show helped introduce these countries to new levels of tourism interest that have not been since pre-pandemic numbers.
If you have a travel bug, you don’t want to miss a Travel and Adventure show coming to a major city near you this year or next year. Attendees have gotten deals in different hotels, cruises, and packages from travel professionals and advisors. Plus, they have tourism boards nearby to provide excellent advice on key on-site locations like museums, wellness spots, restaurants, and more to try. After the Beauté Study staff spoke to multiple travel professionals at the show, we can confidently say that visitors who attend utilize this time well to purchase and plan their trips for at least the next two years.
