History & Future

Celebrating 30 Years of Travel South Showcase

Travel South USA began the first regional, domestic, computerized marketplace in 1983 to bring more group travel business to the Southern states. Twenty-nine Showcases later, the goal has not changed - provide the easiest, most efficient way for tour operators to book business in the Southern states.

The first year of the Showcase, in Tampa, Florida, about 35 tour operators joined 65 tourism suppliers to meet in one-on-one appointments. In 1992 for the first time Travel South USA began inviting international tour operators to attend Travel South Showcase. Today we have tour operators from 32 states, Canada and other international locations. In 1998 editorial media began keeping appointments on the Showcase floor to learn more about Southern destinations.
