It was a bit underwhelming, more a travel trade show than anything. The speakers were OK, but it was still pricey for what it was.

Maybe my expectations were too high. There were a bunch of booths set up with travel agents handing out brochures. I guess I expected something more than this. I'd rather spend my time looking at travel destinations online.

Pretty disappointing but not sure what I expected - it was a lot of tour operators just trying to sell their tour, not give information about the location. They couldn't give a good reason to use a tour, nor what to look for between different tour...continued

I went into this event thinking that it would inspire me to take a trip - all it ended up being was a lot of brochures and not enough knowledge. Half the people that were promoting these destinations hadn't even traveled there!

Huge crowds preventing access to booths & presentations. Went to later presentation 45 min early to get a seat. Not worth the effort. Parking was ridiculous. We couldn't park at the event center but in a neighboring garage that took 40 min to...continued

The best part was hearing Rick Steve's speak.
Other than that I cannot say I got much out of it.

I was really disappointed in the travel show. There was so many "canned" trips, so little creative really-get-to-know-the-people kind of travel.

Great travel show with seemingly all the travel experts & companies under one roof! The lectures on travel were informative and fun! If you are thinking about traveling in the near future, you should attend one of these events.

Various vendors from either State Commerce or Travel agencies stumping why it is best to tour their area. Many give aways but mostly vendors trying to get your contact info. Best part was seminars given by noted travel authorities, Rick Steves...continued

Cruddy parking experience, arrived at 9:40pm at the Convention parking structure, was diverted to the stadium parking across the street, in the rain. No rain cover walkway.

Not clear signage for the standing opening line.

Good thing, person in...continued

Parking was free and fairly easy, so I was able to check in in time to hear Rick Steves - always an enthusiastic and informative presenter.
I visited 6 or 7 travel booths and got some good information. Rest rooms and food concession were...continued

I learned so much from the Peter Greenberg and Rick Steves lectures. I am a seasoned traveler, traveling 4-6 weeks per year, so I did not think I needed to go, but having met the vendors, and listening to the great speakers, I was inspired to...continued

My main reason for going was to absorb the wisdom of Rick Steves from all of his travel experiences.
He was informative and very funny!
Most people did not get his humorous comments, but I had some great laughs!
The show opened my eyes wide to fun...continued

This event is NOT for seriously travelers. It's mostly for people who want free things (like cheap bags, mints, maybe a pen or two.) I was highly disappointed. There were MANY timeshare companies wanting give you a sales pitch on selling...continued

I'd never been to an event like this one, so I wasn't sure exactly what to expect. On the whole, I thought it was good but not great. There were some booths that really appealed to my interests and distributed helpful information and materials. At...continued

The "usual" thing, but with fewer countries, offers than others I've been to.

The selection of speakers was excellent, especially keynote speakers, Rick Steves, Peter Greenberg, and Phil Keoghan. The cheese seminar was also tasty and informative. It was too bad that the talks overlapped, but I guess necessary due to the...continued

I was hoping to get more details on unique trips, however most of the information provided was pretty much what I already knew. We were looking for more options in Europe, but the booths were limited in that area. The session on vacations through...continued

Lots of countries and states promoting tourism. Rick Steves and Doug McConnell were great speakers.

The show was quite large, and I liked that many local California towns were represented. I found several places that I will visit. I thought the international travel options were well represented.

My only complaint is with the venue. This is...continued
