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.




Cambria Hotels—an upscale brand franchised by Choice Hotels International Inc.—introduced the Cambria Hotels Threads Collection, a new product offering that further elevates the brand’s commitment to creating a sense of place in each Cambria hotel.

(Almost) season’s greetings! It’s the time of year when we’re all thinking of ways to celebrate the holidays—whether that means arranging a gathering for groups or planning an activity to show your appreciation to your team and clients. New York, always a magical holiday destination, has a host of ways to get into the holiday spirit, with iconic performances and events. Here are some ideas:

Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, Nov. 30


October is the month of fall color viewing, pumpkin picking, and pizza. Yes, October is National Pizza Month, and if you’re looking to commemorate the occasion, head to New Jersey.

Others may disagree—let’s make that, others will certainly disagree—but last year Food & Wine Magazine named New Jersey the best pizza state in America, followed by Connecticut and New York in the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, respectively. Pennsylvania landed in seventh place and Massachusetts nabbed 10th place.
