NEW DATE: The 2017 International Travel Goods Show Will Be April 5-7

Click here to read the letter from the Chairman and President of the Travel Goods Association.

We listened to exhibitors and retailers alike, who expressed concern with the original early February date. After examining all available options – including a change of venue and even a new host city – TGA and its Board of Directors concluded that The Show had to remain in Las Vegas, and April 5-7 is the best available date for a mid-week Show, which most retailers and exhibitors prefer.

We realize any change is potentially daunting, but hope you understand it’s for the greater good, and that the TGA staff is here and ready to help to ensure a positive Show experience for you in 2017 and beyond.

Testimonials

  • For us, the main thing is to be seen and to make the most of the terrific springboard to notoriety that The Show represents. The U.S. market is still difficult for us but The International Travel Goods Show helps us to find some strong distribution partners in Asia and even in Europe!

  • The Show was the first time Playluggage exhibited at a trade show and showed our products in the U.S. market. It was a successful Show, but even more important was the preparation prior to Las Vegas. We got loads of contacts all over the world, and lots of press attention as a result of The Show.

    General Manager, Playluggage

  • Introducing ourselves to new customers and meeting with existing ones is always refreshing, but what we love most about The Show is hearing firsthand from women about what women want in their travel and business gear. No one knows best except the people using and selling our bags!

  • Ever since we began distributing our luggage in the U.S., DELSEY has never missed one single Show! The Show sets the tone for the travel goods industry, and at no other time can a retailer see almost all luggage products under one roof.

    Coralie Lindvay
    U.S. Director of Marketing, DELSEY
  • I have been attending The Show since the 1980s, and I can honestly say that every Show has been an investment in my business. I pick up on trends, new innovations, renew vendor relations, catch up with fellow retailers and gain ideas for my business. It is a great venue to view products, make selections and plan for the next selling season.

  • As the travel retail category continues to be an important component for our company, the TGA Show has been vital in providing IVAR with a means of one-on-one connection with the true stakeholders in the business. It’s where everyone meets once a year!

  • Once again, I’m glad I attended The Show. Great gifts are always needed and we always score innovative gadgetry at The Show. Registering ahead of time was a breeze. We wrote some orders, noted others and basically gleaned enough to launch us for the next 6-8 months. See you at the next Show!

  • Friendly and helpful TGA staff, eager retail buyers, and a professional atmosphere. That’s The International Travel Goods Show. Since 2013, we continue to find new interest in the Flanabags line of products at The Show.

  • I’m so thankful that I was able to attend my 10th Show in March since reopening my family’s business in 2005. Where else can you see all your major vendors all under one roof? I was able to find new and innovative products to bring into our store. I never miss visiting the New Products Pavilion! We are already making plans to attend The 2016 Show.

  • Acting as the unifying force of the industry, the Travel Goods Association is our glue. TGA allows everyone, big or small, the opportunity to feel equal. Department stores and “mom & pop” stores can discuss their futures side-by-side without one feeling slighted by the other.

    David Stoller
    Owner, Suitcases & More
  • The Travel Goods Association provides a sense of urgency, customer care, and patience that is seldom found when preparing for a trade show. We signed up just two weeks before The Show, asked a TON of questions and the staff was always available, early and late hours included, and exhibited tremendous patience with us.

    Sam Nebel
    co-founder Goodwipes
  • As a new member of TGA, I was impressed with the organization of The Show and with their efforts to promote new products. The team is a pleasure to work with, and they strive to showcase new, creative solutions in this industry.
