"As a first time exhibitor, Itzy Ritzy was excited to display our brand to new markets. The International Travel Goods Show met our expectations and accomplished our main goal of reaching new buyers, closing accounts, and creating a foundation to grow our brand in the travel industry. We look forward to exhibiting in 2014 and continuing that successful trend."

"The International Travel Goods Show is hands-down the best event in the travel goods industry. As a newer company and first-time attendee, I met potential buyers and industry insiders; I gained insight into the travel goods industry; and I made invaluable press contacts. There is simply no other forum for accomplishing this in three days. I highly recommend this event to any company in the travel goods industry seeking to gain broader market awareness and grow a company."
"This was our first year participating in The Show, and we were really pleased. I would say it's the nicest show at which we've exhibited. It was really well organized, the other exhibitors were friendly, and so were the attendees. The complimentary massages, cookies, etc. were a nice perk, and it was good to see many of our current customers stop by and order more product. Good job and thanks! We'll be back next year."
"After developing our travel accessory and thoroughly researching all options available to us worldwide, we came to the decision that The International Travel Goods Show was the only place that we should launch to the industry and establish global contacts. Eight weeks on, we now have 20 distributors covering 35 countries wanting to represent SuitPack, and have laid the groundwork for a highly successful product roll-out later this year."
"I just wanted to let you know that the TGA Show turned out great for us. We had a lot of traffic all three days. GES did a great job with our booth and freight. The New Products Pavilion worked out very well. UK-based Harrods department store first saw the PodPal in the Pavilion and then came to our booth. That was the last day of The Show, and they placed an order! I have been attending The Show since 1989 in Vegas, however, this was my first time as an exhibitor. We really had a great turnout. Felix the Cat had a good time, too!"
"All I can say about the Travel Goods Association is that it's just AMAZING! In this focus-oriented industry, they put brands in the pipeline with sales leads, marketing opportunities, and many other resources. For travel goods, The Show is the only place to intimately connect with industry veterans and utilize tools to take your business to the next level."
"We were fortunate to have one of the busiest and hopefully best shows, if even only a few of the potentials come through. We'll definitely get the 2014 application to you before June 1."
"Just wanted to say 'thank you'. We are so busy now from all the interest that our product and the Product Innovation Award generated!"

"Thank you for an awesome 2013 Show! I know there are lots of folks who love Las Vegas (and there are lots of fun things to do there) but I (and my allergies!) are looking forward to a break! Yeah for Phoenix! Again, thank you for all the hard work you put into The 2013 Show!"

"First, I would like to thank the TGA team for a great show. Everything was superb, flawless. Not only the Travelers Club team, but also our buyers were very comfortable and happy with everything TGA has provided. Great work, thank you all so much. I appreciate your help as always, and I hope to see you in Phoenix next year."
"The International Travel Goods Show is the greatest marketing decision for the travel sector and is always a big part of our marketing budget."

"For me, The International Travel Goods Show is a 'must-see' each year. Not only does it provide insight into what consumers will find on store shelves in months to come, but also helps me generate a number of story ideas to sell to newspapers, magazines and websites. It's the easiest (and quickest) way for me to become an expert on luggage and accessory trends."
