Industry Trade Shows and Consumer Travel Shows

Industry trade shows allow the exhibitor to market their area or business to tour operators, travel writers, travel agents, meeting planners and others who have the potential of bringing large groups of visitors to the state.

Consumer travel shows put the exhibitor face-to-face with potential customers looking for a vacation destination or meeting venue.
