Leisure Travel Trade Show

Thursday, August 17th, 2017. Mohler Assembly Hall 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


Missouri Travel Council is proud to present a Leisure Travel Trade Show for our industry members and partners, at the Missouri State Fair, in the Mohler Assembly Hall, in Sedalia, MO on Thursday, August 17th, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Thursday, August 17 has been designated as Governor’s, Legislators’ and Judges’ Day at the Missouri State Fair.

This trade show will again feature the Throwback Thursday theme and provide the opportunity for our participants to have some fun with a 50’s, 60’s, or 70’s throwback booth theme or, perhaps, an opportunity to throw back to a particular date in history important to your destination. Your choice.

Whether promoting your area’s history, attractions, shopping, girlfriend and/or couples get-away packages, spa weekends, golf opportunities, unique boutiques, wine tasting tours, etc., let creativity be your guide and let’s make it a fun day promoting all that Missouri has to offer! To make the day even more special, the Fair is doing a throwback $5 gate admission all day for ages 13 and over, while admission is free for kids 12 and under. Throwback pricing will also be available at select concessionaires and vendors to add even more value to the day.

Your cost to exhibit is only $125 per booth for MEMBERS of Missouri Travel Council. The booth price is only $150 for NON-MEMBERS. There are a limited number of booths available. Make your reservation as soon as possible and pay online with the buttons below.
