The 2015 International Travel Goods Show hasn't quite filled up...yet. But it will. And you don't want to get locked out of your chance to reach the biggest buyers in travel goods. It's going to be a high-energy, revitalized show as we return to the bright lights of Las Vegas, which always tends to entice the most retailers seeking the latest in travel items (and perhaps a little respite from winter's chill). Mark out your space on the floor plan — it's the next best thing to writing orders. Get with Trade Show VP Cathy Hays at 877-842-1938, x-707 to see what's still available, and how we might put together a custom package to help you show off your travel gear before, during and after the biggest retailer gathering on the planet.

Big savings. Big pop.

That's a tremendous savings to put your company in the pre-Show, Show and post-Show issues, which are the year's strongest issues for reaching media and travel goods retailers. Special promo packages in these three issues will also include extra bonuses, but you'll need to make direct contact for details. Just get in touch with Cathy Hays at 877-842-1938, x-707, and find out how the smartest ad buy in the industry just got a whole lot better.

Travel Goods Association Releases State of the U.S. Travel Goods Market 2002-2013: Selling Less for More [FULL STORY]

Travel goods sales fell by volume in 2013, but consumers were willing to pay more for those fewer products, leading to a rise in sales by value, according to a new report released by the Travel Goods Association (TGA). Travel goods are defined as luggage, backpacks, travel/sports bags, business cases/computer bags, handbags, personal leather goods, and luggage locks. TGA estimates that sales of travel goods in 2013 surpassed pre-recession levels, with U.S. consumers spending an estimated $29.5 billion in 2013 on travel goods, a rise of 17.2% from 2012.

TGA makes recommendations regarding potential Proposition 65 reforms

TGA joined 140 other business groups and companies in submitting joint comments on November 17 in response to California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment's (OEHHA) request for public participation on potential regulatory action on Proposition 65 (Prop 65). The comments serve as a guide to help OEHHA determine how to address any future regulations that are in line with California Governor Jerry Brown's proposed Prop 65 reform. The comments address specific issues such as updating and streamlining the safe use determination process, clarifying regulatory provisions on averaging exposures, determining chemicals which should be given priority in the development or update of Safe Harbor levels, and determining where interpretive guidance is needed to provide more clarity to businesses.
