You can find out more about potential travel destinations and also get your hands on some useful maps and information brochures.

There are travel “experts” or at least industry insiders to help you with your travel plans. At the country pavilions, you can ask for advice on your destination. You may also find out the better route to take and discover attractions that are out of the travel guidebooks.

There’s more to just discounts on package deals at the NATAS Travel Fair. Do your research online before the fair and you’re sure to get a good deal at NATAS Fair!
