I thought this event was dull, the exhibitors weren't particularly enthusiastic and I didn't leave with the hoped for dream vacation idea. It was really disappointing.

if tickets were not complimentary it would have been a bad experience. I guess if you were interested in the speakers there might have been some good advice there, but mostly tourism companies setting up shop which is nice if you are planning a...continued

It was an organized event. I especially enjoyed when there were interactive or viewer friendly exhibits that drew you into the culture of a distant place. Those are the places I would more likely visit.

It was fun and there were a lot of goodies from many vendors. The exhibitors were knowledgeable and very nice. I'm definitely going back next year!

Mostly tourism bureaus promoting their countries, towns, states, etc. Would've preferred more diverse range of travel experiences.

The atmosphere there was energetic!! A great experience for obtaining ideas and resources for domestic and international travel. I was able to talk to multiple tour representatives for, e.g. the Japanese Bullet train, an African safari, a Mumbai...continued

This show was okay. It was pretty crowded and I felt that there was not enough European countries represented but tons of local destinations. I was also disappointed to find that there were also vendors from unrelated industries such as remodeling...continued

Well organized. Wide variety of vendors and destinations to learn about. Definitely worth the investment to attend at the Groupon discount (we live 100 miles distant and made it a D.C. weekend, beginning with the Travel & Adventure Show). Spoke to...continued

Went with 2 friends. Heard Steves, Brown, Frommer. They were really good. Cartan Tours who was there last year didn't come this year. Also wish there had been more representatives from train tours.

A few years ago, we went to the Travel Expo and it was GREAT! So many countries were represented, they all answered our questions from Australia, to Fiji, New Zealand to Thailand. The lectures were awesome, Samantha Brown really did an amazing...continued

Exhibits are getting less informative and much more self-serving. I have attended in the past; never again.

Great speakers sharing insights! It was a balance of mid-atlantic travel and international travel.

I enjoyed the whole experience from the travel experts to the vendors with lots of good information. It was so worthwhile, it was put together well. I would definitely attend this travel show again.

I had been to the show before anyway, but this was first time I went to ANY event through Goldstar. It is a great experience at these shows, as you get to talk to destination experts. After going to the this show, I already have a couple of ideas...continued

I liked the show, but was kind of disappointed that there were not as many USA places there this year as last year's show. Also, gutter repair and roof repair businesses and massage places have no business at a travel and adventure show!

I was shocked and taken aback to see that SeaWorld had several wild animals "on display" at the travel show. As animals who have not been domesticated, these animals have a fear response to humans -- particularly in a crowded and loud venue such...continued

I was unable to attend because my mother was rushed to GW hospital that morning with chest pains... I'm so sorry I wasn't able to use my goldstar tickets for this event.... But my mother's medical condition was more important.

Interesting way to spend a rainy afternoon on Sunday. Glad I didn't pay full price, though. Found a few interesting places to read up on for the future.
