National and International travel these days is a lot easier with access to airfares and hotels - absolutely anywhere in the world, at your finger-tips! However sometimes the best way to make the most of your next holiday destination is to speak directly with those in the tourism industry and that is what Travel XPO is all about - allowing the public to attend different seminars and ultimately help them plan their next dream holiday.
The Travel Xpo is held over the weekend of Saturday, March 19 and Sunday, March 20 2011 at the Royal Exhibition Building, Carlton. It will then travel to Sydney and Brisbane.
The convention presents the various multimedia seminars in five different groups;
There is the Reconnect Seminars - which are all about short breaks. Here you will be provided with all the information you need for your next short break - be it a short stay at a resort or a golfing expedition.
Explore Seminars are designed for the explorer. Here you will be able to design your next trip, with the help of experts and exhibitors. You can view footage and images and learn all about the popular group destinations and the solo adventure trips around the world.
Adventure and Ski Seminars are perfect for the thrill-seeker - here you can learn about land and water tours, ski locations and remote locations around the world. Also extreme sports destinations are also presented.
Family Seminars are designed for the young family as planning a family holiday is certainly no easy task - exactly how do you please mum and dad, a teenager and a toddler? Well, the experts are here to help - presenting popular family destinations which will please every member of the family. Whether you desire a theme-park holiday, a resort holiday or a beach holiday - the experts at Family Seminars, will help you plan the perfect family-friendly holiday.
Discover Seminars are all about those who wish to discover the world in a different way. Here you will learn about holidays for groups and individuals. Maybe you want to discover a country by railway or relax on a cruise, or perhaps venture on a wilderness tour - here you will have all the information you need to plan your next trip.
It is expected there will be over a hundred exhibitors at the convention and besides the seminars, there will be special guests from the popular Channel 9 travel show Getaway, as well as roving entertainment and performances demonstrating a number of cultures of the world.
As the floor plan demonstrates, the convention not only will present different types of holidays right here in Australia, but also numerous travel options in New Zealand and the Pacific, Asia and Africa and Europe and the Americas - everywhere in the world will be covered.
