Last week’s New York Times Travel Show in the Big Apple brought some attention to the beautiful French Riviera region, and I’m hoping it has spurred local tourism for ideas on how to entice global tourists here with a full calendar of vibrant events.
For my UK-based readers, the Destinations Holiday & Travel Show in London is being hosted at the Olympia London from 04-07 February, 2016.
Drop by any day from 10.30am to 5.30pm; kids under 12 years are free.
It has been run for 22 years in conjunction with The Times and The Sunday Times and inspires travellers with over 350 exhibitors and 70 tourism boards offering destination advice, special deals and packages.
There are photography workshops, travel writers forums, Wanderlust Magazine’s Travel Photo of the Year Gallery, street food stalls, Experience the World Stages with cultural displays and free samples as well as a new Adventure Travel section presented by National Geographic.
