Meet face-to-face with travel counselors and educate them on what’s new in your destination! The Texas Travel Fair, managed by the Texas Heritage Trails, is an annual trade show held as part of the Texas Travel Counselors Conference (TTCC) 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.

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, museums, events, festivals, etc.).
