JCVB offers members space at trade shows
The Juneau Convention and Visitors Bureau has purchased booth space at two important consumer travel shows in early 2009 and is offering JCVB members the opportunity to join.

The first show is the Seattle Times Travel Show, to be held Jan. 24-25, 2009, at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. Last year's Seattle show was attended by 6,640 consumers and local travel agents. Cost for booth-sharing at the show is $300.

The second show is the Los Angeles Times Travel & Adventure Show in Los Angeles, Calif. The Los Angeles show is the largest consumer travel show in the U.S. It will be held Feb. 14-15, 2009. The show will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Last year this show drew more than 18,500 qualified consumer attendees, travel agents and tour operators. Cost for booth-sharing at the show is $500.

Both shows deliver an audience of affluent and active consumers. Juneau is a great match for these West Coast travelers, with our easy air connections and abundance of attractions and activities.

Each show can accommodate five bureau members. Space will be confirmed on a first paid, first served basis. The booth-share cost is an incredible value for reaching these particular audiences.

The single booth cost at the LA show is $3,350 and single booth cost at Seattle show is $795. All other travel expenses are the responsibility of participating member. JCVB members interested in participating in the booth-share should contact Elizabeth Arnett at 586-1737, ext. 105 or email at
