When travellers take tours of Ottawa this winter, it may spark further interest in exploring even more destinations in the future. Fortunately, guests who visit Canada's capital city can attend the Travel and Vacation show coming to the new CE Centre on March 10th and 11th. The general public and travel professionals will connect at dozens of booths offering tips on all the latest trends in the industry.
Attendees can find inspiration for future travel plans by visiting the representatives of the various tourism organisations that will be present at the event. For example, national tourism groups from countries such as Croatia, China, Jamaica, Morocco and dozens of others will bring a wealth of information about their destinations and help guests decide where to visit next.
Not only will vendors provide advice and deals on vacation packages, but many will host interactive demonstrations and activities. One highlight of the conference will be the array of culinary delights presented to spectators, which will grant prospective travellers a taste of some delicious international cuisine before they venture to a new foreign locale. In the past, nations like Mexico and Indonesia have had professional chefs prepare authentic dishes from the freshest ingredients found near the city.
Another superb feature of the show is the opportunity for visitors to take home prizes and free trips by entering giveaways. Last year, the Nova Scotia Tourism Board presented a seven-day holiday for two with airfare, accommodations and planned outdoor activities. Other groups gave away flights to Orlando, Florida, and vacation packages to New York City.
This convention could be a great thing to do with the whole family, as children can receive free admission and seniors may attend free on the first day. All tickets can be reserved or purchased through the event's website and more information will be continually posted on the official Facebook fan page.
Those with a penchant for travel and seeing new places should not miss this exciting convention while on a fun holiday trip to Ottawa. Since the event is in its 18th year and will feature more than 160 vacation exhibits, travellers can be assured that spending some time at this event will be well worth their while.
