“After being in the travel business for over 20 years I’ve realized I’ve been in a rut. When approached about GTM I was thinking to myself: ‘Ugh, another travel show.’ I immediately came tumbling down from my high horse, and I honestly feel like I’ve been reborn. This is the BEST business decision I’ve made in years. Everything about GTM was 100% spot on. EVERY little detail was covered. This was the best travel show I’ve ever attended, and I’ve been to plenty!”
— Bobby McGovern, Reservations Master
