The East Hampton Chamber of Commerce, partnering with Hamptons Visitors Council, will represent the Hamptons at the The New York Times Travel Show from January 24 to 26 at the Javits Center in Manhattan. In addition, title sponsor StayMarquis and winter tourism partner Long Island Winterfest will join the festivities all three days of the show.
The Travel Show reached a record 35,568 participants last year — the highest attendance to date. The chamber will have an interactive exhibitor booth with large digital video displays and entertainment to feature local businesses. With prime location with state and regional tourism leaders I Love New York and Discover Long Island, the business community is invited to come and promote their business to attendees looking for visits and vacations to the Hamptons.
Inns, eateries, stores, and services catering to tourists are all invited to bring promotional material and meet scores of potential new customers and potential collaborators when they register to attend. Look for over 700 exhibitor booths and over 250 travel industry speakers and experts. Over 175 countries are represented from around the world. It’s the largest travel trade and consumer show in North America.
“This unique opportunity to network with national media, consumers, and industry peers makes this show a ‘must attend’ experience for local businesses. Especially given the unique seasonality of our region, it’s a very impactful 72-hour experience,” said Glenn Vickers, board president for the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce.
