It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…The Travel and Adventure Show landing in the Big D on January 30 – 31. Scheduling a complete takeover of the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center, the Dallas Travel and Adventure Show will lure travel enthusiasts from across the region to scoop what’s hot and what’s not by means of travel in 2016. A mega production, the Travel and Adventure Show hits 7 cities (including Dallas) on its tour, attracting well over 135,000 consumers annually.

Then ditch your walking shoes for dancing shoes as you shimmy and shake your way to the Global Beats Stage where the Convention Center magically transforms to beats and dances featuring cultures from around the world.
