NY Times Travel Show Returns to Javits Center


Much like the Auto Show and the NY Comic Con, the New York Times Travel Show (March 2 - 4, 2012) is a great fixture of the Javits Center (655 W. 34th Street, New York, NY 10001), and will be there once more. 

The Show features a wide range of exhibitors representing countries from towns and cities all over the U.S.A. as well as all over the world,. Travel show representatives encourage people to: “Get a closer look at domestic and international hot spots, familiar favorites, and those under-the-radar escapes that are still relatively crowd free.”  

Included in the programming are five cultural stages offering food and performances from around the world.

This year’s culinary travel demonstrations will feature star chefs from the Food Network’s South Beach Wine & Food Festival including (among others):

  • Jonathan Waxman, Executive Chef and Owner of Barbutto
  • celebrity chef David Burke

Embracing the emergence of new technology and social media, the Travel Show will also feature the Connected Traveler Showcase, the first-ever showcase of technology for travelers. Connected Traveler ( -- one of the longest-running travel and tech sites -- will be presenting a range of mobile devices, digital photographic tools, video cameras, apps, augmented reality, travel career education, device accessories, and mobile services that make pleasure or business travel easier, safer and more fun.

Another aspect of the show's array of features is a wide range of seminars which give information and advice on traveling hosted by such world travel experts as
