With an endless sea of exhibitors from North and South America, and exotic destinations across the world, including Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia/South Pacific, and the Caribbean, it appears as if the entire world converged at the fifteenth-anniversary of The New York Times Travel Show at the Javitz Center in Manhattan. Over 40 destination specific seminars were offered to over 32,000 travel enthusiasts, with 900 media professionals in attendance and over 500 travel booths presenting consumers in direct contact with Boards of Tourism, cruises, resorts and tour representatives for 170 plus destinations.

The event, mainly sponsored by Turkish Air and South Africa, offered a multifaceted experience as each day catered to different groups, from media and travel professionals to families and non-industry travelers. Products, services, and travel trends featured prominently in the travel conference agenda as interesting topics.
