This Weekend: L.A. Times Travel Show (Jan 18th & 19th)

Los Angeles times Travel Show
This weekend the 16th Annual L.A. Times Travel Show arrives at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Jan 18th and Jan 19th. Whether you're a regular traveler or just looking to travel more, this is the perfect event to gain insight and ideas. A number of the show's taglines tell you all the reasons you should travel more:

  • "No one ever wishes they traveled less."
  • "A touch screen is no substitute for touch."
The travel trade show also offers guest speakers, including some famous headliners and many well-known travel authors.  Headliners this year include Henry Rollins, Alyssa Milano, Adam Richman, and Arthur Frommer.  Many exhibitors will also be on-hand to provide show-only specials and trip giveaways - it's also the perfect opportunity to talk directly with experts in the industry about destinations around the world.

Tickets are $10 per person and kids 16 and under are free with one paid adult.  Discounts are also available.  L.A. Times Members receive a 50% discount.  Tap card holders, Metro employees, and L.A. County employees receive $3 off admission. To learn more, visit the Los Angeles Times Travel Show site.
