New York Times Travel Show 2017

The New York Times Travel Show in New York City Starts today and I got some free tickets just for my readers (courtesy of the New York Times)! They will go quick. Enjoy!

There will be lots of seminars, over 500 exhibitors, 5 stages with performances throughout the weekend, book signings, and more. In the past, I talked with experts about Australia to help plan my trip and got information to explore other new places for future trips. If you love to travel, you could easily spend 1 day here between the seminars, exhibitor booths, and chatting with experts but I would plan at least 4 hours… at least until you get hungry and have to look for food (see BAD food below).

HOW TO GET TICKETS

  1. FREE Ticket:  Click here and use promo code “NYTTRB” when you check out. Free tickets are limited! [Please leave a comment or tweet me if you use it]
  2. Buy discounted tickets from Goldstar $8-$15 + $3-4 service fee
  3. Buy a ticket directly from the show. Use coupon code TS17NYTTS to get 2 for 1 (regular price = $20 for 1 day or $25 for two days).

FREE RIDES TO THE SHOW

Want a free ride with those free tickets? The show is at the Jacob Javits Center (655 West 34th St, New York, NY 10001). If you need a ride, take a Lyft (new users get $50 free credit), Uber (new users get a free ride up to $20)Gett (new users get $50 off next 10 trips), or Via (new users get $10 free ride credit), Juno (10% off all rides). Note: These are my personal referral links and I will get credit if you use them.

BAD BAD FOOD – WARNING!

The food is always bad. Think expensive hot dogs and Pizza with no restaurants close by. If you want some normal food, take a walk to 9th Ave where you'll find lots of good stuff including many Thai restaurants (my favorite, Chili Thai, has sadly closed down).

SEMINARS

There are always lots of seminars covering a wide range of tops like planning an African safari trip, Italy, Japan, and an update on the travel world from Pauline Frommer. These are great for newbies.

PERFORMANCES

I don't spend much time watching the performances but you might light that kind of thing. The performance schedules are all listed here. Here are some highlights from 2015.
