2018 AAA Vacations Showcase – Denver, Colorado

Last weekend Gene and I were very happy to be able to attend the AAA Vacations Showcase here in Denver, CO. This year it was a two day event which included tour operators, cruise companies, convention and visitors bureaus, hotels, and more!  They also had a range of presentations and demonstrations.  Here is the schedule that they had on Saturday –  Presentations_Saturday_2-3-18  . We enjoyed quite a few different ones, and they were different than last year. Sadly we weren’t able to get to all of them. We did split up a couple of times and got more information than we would have if we went to all the same presentations.

Vacations Showcase

There were so many vendors wanting to exhibit at the Vacations Showcase, and we wanted to visit as many as we could, but it was so spread out. I love Mile High Stadium (the current venue) but sadly it is not a good venue for this type of event.  You spend a lot of time going from one area back to another area and then back to the area you were originally.  Not the best way to utilize your time in my opinion. But that’s just my two cents worth.

Even with that said, we did get to speak with many of the vendors in between and after the presentations. I was happy to be able to see Peggy with Royal Gorge Bridge & Park.  I had met her last summer while on a media event, and it was great to see her again.  Below is the list of the vendors that were here in 2018:
