The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre hosts the Brisbane Travel Expo on 13 and 14 February 2016. The expo runs over two days from 9am to 4pm.
Jam packed full of exhibitors and talks the intrepid traveller will be able to get inspiration and ideas at this expo.
Whether you're planning a holiday next month or next year there is something for every budding traveller here. Get on the spot bookings and advice for all of your travel destinations.
Exhibitors such as Star Cruises and Holland America Line showcase the best in cruising. Sno n Ski Canada talks all things snow while Tongan Tourism Authority and Fiji Where Happiness Finds You will show you the best of the pacific beaches. Or perhaps you're outback Australia bound? The Travel Expo exhibits both Australia and the World with representative travel services for many countries and modes of transport.
Find discount flights with Emirates Airline and Virgin Australia, or plan a trip on the Rocky Mountaineer.
With over 120 exhibitors, visitors are sure to find a destination and budget of choice. Maybe Celebrity Cruises appeals to you, or Top Deck Travel for the 18 to 35's.
Besides the many and varied exhibitors showcasing their best deals there are also free travel presentations for many of the destinations and travelling styles from the big travel companies. Learn about how to trek Asia in comfort or cruise through Europe.
Tickets can be purchased online free of charge and when you order your free ticket online you go into the draw to win your choice of 5 amazing holidays. My pick is the Northern Lights holiday but having been to the Indian continent a few years ago, Exotic India also appeals. At the time of ordering your ticket online you can also register for one of the many travel destination presentations. While you can register online, it is not imperative, you can just turn up on the day if you want to.
The Brisbane Travel Expo is held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on 13 and 14 February from 9am to 4pm. Paid parking is available on site and public transport is available.
