>L.A. Times Travel & Adventure Show

>This weekend, I attended the L.A. Times Travel & Adventure Show. Seemingly, the show was a success. I ran into some of my favorite travel agents, Marc Kassouf, Nathan DePetris and Jason Coleman, president of SoCalASTA. It was also fun to meet with Tourism Malaysia and learn about all the tourism opportunities there are in the country. I was surprised to learn that it is just now beginning to promote spa and wellness, which I think will be a really successful adventure. I also enjoyed meeting with Ecuador and South Africa and learning more about two tour operators that target a younger audience, Intrepid (http://www.intrepidtravel.com/) and Gap Adventures (http://www.gapadventures.com/). They even work with families — making me think that, if I were a family with young children (oh, wait — I am), I would really be interested in taking a trip with them!
Here are some photos of my trade show experience:
