CT's World of Travel: After 25 Years, Consumers Are Now Invited

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2011) - For more than a quarter century, Addison Travel Trade Shows, Canada's only independently produced travel trade shows, have been recognized as Canada's pre-eminent B2B travel industry trade shows. Renamed as CT's World of Travel, the shows now open their doors to welcome consumers.

"We are extremely excited to welcome this new audience," says Brad Liski, President of ACT Communications Inc., the parent company of CT's World of Travel. "The benefits are huge. Consumers can learn about new and popular destinations, and network with the experts who can help them plan their next trip."

Featured destinations include Antigua & Barbuda, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, China, Italy, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Hong Kong, Israel, Jordan, Korea, Louisiana, Malaysia, Michoacán, Mexico, Orlando, Philippines, Puerto Rico, St. Vincent & The Grenadines, Thailand Turks & Caicos and even West Hollywood.

During the final hour of each show in the eight cities across Canada, consumers can walk the aisles, chat with destinations, tour operators and travel agents. Post-show, those attending will be sent links to a digital travel agent directory for agents and agencies in their area. If the consumer is interested in traveling somewhere specific, they can then seek an agent that specializes in that destination. "We are doing a matching service," says Liski "The agents get the education at the shows and then the consumers get the benefit of that education."
