NYT Travel Show: LGBT Panels Take Off
If you’ve got the travel bug, be sure to be at the Javits Convention Center in New York City February 27-28 for the New York Times Travel Show and expo.
With over 500 exhibiting companies, five Regions of the World Pavilion Stages, seven Travel Trade Conferences featuring 34 conference sessions, the Travel Industry Reception, 24 Consumer Conference sessions, and the Tourism Cares live auction benefiting the September 11 Memorial & Museum Fund, there will be no shortage of informative avenues to help you hone your knowledge and skills as a jet-set world traveler.
Most important, don’t miss the two LGBT conferences that weekend cohosted by PlanetOut Travel contributor and gay travel guru Ed Salvato and friends.
