About the Texas Travel Fair - Why You Should Exhibit (video)
The TTIA Texas Travel Fair, an annual trade show for TTIA members only, is held as part of the Texas Travel Counselors Conference sponsored by the Texas Department of Transportation - Travel Information Division. The travel counselors who attend this event work at Texas Department of Transportation Travel Information Centers, city visitor centers, Texas Parks and Wildlife offices, and Texas Highways magazine. These professionals give guidance to millions of travelers to Texas each year. As part of the training for travel counselors, TTIA members are invited to discuss their destinations, attractions or events during the conference and at the Texas Travel Fair. 

Exhibiting at the Texas Travel Fair gives you the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the travel counselors and educate them on what's new in your destination (i.e. attractions, events, festivals, etc.).  The travel counselors will be divided in groups of two this year and will be assigned a specific booth number to start.  Exhibitors, please have a one page information sheet that talks about what is new in your destination to give each travel counselor. 

  • All awards will be announced at the Stars of Texas Awards Dinner on Wednesday night. The dinner will begin at 6:30pm and the Appreciation Party will follow at 8pm.
  • On Thursday, we will begin with a breakfast with the travel counselors from 8:00am - 8:45am. All exhibitors are encouraged to attend. The Texas Travel Fair will follow breakfast from 9:00am - 12:00pm.
  • There will be a Mail Back Center for the Travel Counselors this year, but there are some restrictions. Each travel counselor will have the ability to fill one box (exact size 18"x18"x20") with items (approx. 30lb weight limit) and have it shipped to their office. Please keep this in mind if you plan to bring gift items. Please also note: breakable items are discouraged and will not be shipped to counselors.

  • All events conclude at 12:00pm on Thursday.
 Contact Jennifer Baker, Membership & Events Coordinator, at if you have questions.
