Review from Lynn Canham Sterling

The usual "show" at the convention center. Everybody and their friend has a booth and about half of them are related to the subject of the show. The rest are trying to sell everything from jewelry cleaner to windows. Just know that and never pay...continued

Great speakers at the show, especially Phil Keoghan. Rick Steves was informative, but spent too much time pushing his tour business.

Most of the major travel companies were not there! Present were small, individual travel companies I have never heard of.

Review from Kris Hizal

Lots of interesting travel options. There were places that we were unfamiliar with but would now like to visit. Can't wait to go through the brochures! Too many raffles that were actually time-share talking points. I know I'm going to get e-mail...continued

Review from Susan

There seemed to be a lot going on all at the same time. I would have liked to have seen more travel vendors selling travel wear, luggage, etc. I was able to stop by the travel services that interested me so that made it worthwhile.

Review from john B.

there was a lot of infor available from the booths. We didn't stay for that many speakers I understand it's the first year here in SD. I expect it will get better with repeat performances.

The best part of the event was the guest speakers.
Parking was $15 in addition to the event price so I
will not be going again.

Nothing much different than last year. The Peter Greenberg talk was the highlight of my experience. I did get to speak to the people at the Israel booth, as I am doing my research for that trip. Other than that, meh. I will say last year I had...continued

The only best part was the talk by S. Brown. The rest was people at the booths trying to sell you timeshares.

It was fun to see Samantha Brown talk. She is so down to earth and hilarious. The expo hall was ok, i prefer to book my travel online... but if you want to talk with a travel vender there were plenty!

Many many booths, national & international with information available to plan vacations. Worthwhile couple of hours. Did not attend any of the speakers/preformances, so can't evaluate those.

Hadn't gone in years. It was fun & it wasn't too large a show.
We got lots of helpful info and acted upon it right away. Also,

To top it off, excellent entertainment. We didn't have...continued
