Yes, travel is back! The crowd attending the New York Travel and Adventure Show at Jacob K.
Javits Convention Center on Saturday, January 28, 2023, and Sunday, January 29, 2023, shows
that travel is in high demand. The travel demand is even higher than before the global pandemic
tested the travel industry.
There were many reasons to attend the 2-day event. Barbara Graham of Queens, New York, was
there looking for someone to help book her next trip. Alisha Mcfarlane, President of Her Pink
Passport, sought inspiration to help build her brand. While world traveler and social media
influencer Goon of The Lifestyle Brothers said, he wasn't sure what to expect since this was his
first time attending the expo. However, he reportedly made some excellent connections and
looked forward to being a Speaker at an upcoming Travel and Adventure Show.
Travel Advisors traveled from near and far to attend the event. Dennis Mott Jr., world traveler
and CEO of DMJ Travel and Gifts, traveled from California to participate in the travel expo. "I
gained a lot of knowledge from the different vendors and places worldwide. I loved seeing all the
people coming in looking for great deals. Mott said it was very important to mingle with the
customer and learn so much information from vendors. Travel business owners, Stacy Pratt
Bynum and her husband, Ugene Bynum, drove from Philadelphia to New York to attend the
event with their team of travel agents. They enjoyed the perks and special treats many exhibitors
had on hand to give to travel professionals. While CEO of Magic Travel Biz, Bryan Sanders,
enjoyed talking to the exhibitors. "I've always wanted to go to Tahiti, and they're here giving out
information," said Bryan as he smiled triumphantly. However, those travel professionals who
waited too long to register for Trade Day saw it was "sold out."
Those in attendance had the opportunity to learn from travel experts during workshops and panel
discussions. There was a diverse selection of exhibitors representing destinations from all over
the world. More exhibitors were representing Africa at this expo than in previous expos, and tour
operators wanted people to know there's more to Africa than wildlife safari. Mauly Tours &
Safaris Tanzania stood out among the tour operators with tailor-made tours to suit travelers'
The Caribbean was well represented. Barbados was a Supporting Sponsor for the event and had
an impressive exhibitor booth. Exhibitors were also representing Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda,
Aruba, Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Curacao, Jamaica, Martinique, Roatan, St. Lucia, Turks &
Caicos, Trinidad and Tobago, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Curacao Tourism Corp received
compliments for the beauty of their booth. The artist said he was happy to know people enjoyed
his artwork and expressed his pride in representing his love for his country through art.
Yes, travel lovers, the New York Travel and Adventure Show was worth the trip. What if you
could take great vacations for free or highly reduced rates? What if you could write off most of
your travel-related expenses on your taxes? Well, you could if you owned an online, home-based
travel business. There are many perks and benefits of owning an online, home-based travel
business, including being your own boss, working online from anywhere, making your own
schedule, and getting paid to do what you love.
One of the wealthiest men in the world, Warren Buffet, says, "What you like to do, make that
your hobby. But what the world likes to do, make that your business." Events like the New York
Travel and Adventure Show remind us how much the world loves to travel. Before the global
pandemic, travel was an $8.3 trillion industry. Recent industry studies show travel is a $9.6
trillion dollar industry. How much of that money do you need to be happy? If you're traveling
anyway, consider learning how to turn your passion for travel into profits.
While the income-earning potential with an online, home-based travel business is incredible,
many business owners didn't get into business based on the money. Many were wooed into the
travel industry because of their desire to travel more and access the perks and travel benefits of
the industry. For others, it's time for freedom, financial freedom, and the amazing lifestyle they
can create. While many others already own businesses, they can wrap the online, home-based
travel business around what they're already doing to enhance their offerings.
