Find your Next Favorite Destination at The New York Times Travel Show 2020


Have you ever been to the New York Times Travel Show? I went last year for the first time and I loved it. It is like being in a candy store! I want to go everywhere!

It is the Largest Travel Trade and Consumer Show in North America!

The New York Times Travel Show attracts more than 35,000 attendees with over 700 exhibitors from more than 175 countries, making it the largest travel trade and consumer show in North America. In 2020, the show was January 24 – 26 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
