If you’re looking for signs that people are ready to travel again, look no farther than the Javits Convention Center in New York City. In late January 2023, the convention center will be hosting two key travel events. First up, on Jan. 25-26, will be TravMedia's International Media Marketplace (IMM), a global networking event. Then, on the weekend of Jan. 28-29, New York Travel & Adventure Show will move into the convention center. 

The partnership is being marketed as “New York’s first-ever ‘Travel Week,’ where top constituents in the industry will gather in the travel capital of the world for a week dedicated to all things travel and tourism.” 

“With travel restrictions lifting around the world and travel demand at an all-time high, this is a great opportunity to bring together North American media, global destinations, and travel brands here to New York City to celebrate and promote travel,” says Dominika Dryjski, COO of TravMedia. “We're delighted to partner with Travel & Adventure Shows to bring Travel Week to New York, inspiring people to visit new destinations and sharing in the latest news and updates in travel.” 

John Golicz, CEO of Unicomm, LLC, the producer of the Travel & Adventure Show Series, strikes a similar note. “We launched the New York show last year just as consumers were beginning to think about travel planning, but now that travel is booming again, we're even more excited to bring a bigger and better event to the Big Apple in the heart of the travel buying season,” he says. “Tri-State residents have incredible access to nearly every destination in the world and we strive to inspire them with ideas of new places and things they can see. Save the date, we'll see you in January.” 

Travel & Adventure Shows will be hosted in other major cities across the country in 2023, including Chicago (Jan. 14-15), Boston (Jan. 21-22), Washington, D.C. (Feb. 4-5), Los Angeles (Feb 18-19), Denver (Feb 25-26), Santa Clara (March 4-5), Atlanta (March 25-26) and Dallas (April 1-2). For more information, visit travelshows.com.




On Nov. 23, the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) held its annual luncheon at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The event brought together the city’s hospitality community to celebrate travel, tourism, and the return of in-person events. It was a high-spirited gathering in a magnificent space. Guests were invited to browse the museum’s galleries, including the acclaimed “Matisse in the 1930’s” exhibit. 


If you’re planning a meeting in the Finger Lakes region of west-central New York, chances are you’ve chosen the destination for the natural beauty of its 11 lakes, blue hills, and rolling farmland; its low-key friendly vibe, and its charming towns—all a revitalizing contrast to urban centers. Now, with the introduction of FLX Well-Being Passport, it will be easier than ever for attendees to enjoy the restorative benefits of the area.


The Pennsylvania Convention Center, located in Center City, Philadelphia, and its trade show labor partners have established the new Hospitality Industry Advancement Trust (HIAT).
