Why Attend the Heartland Travel Showcase?

Grow Your Business
A Heartland tour operator, on average, experiences $36,700 in booked business resulting from the show in a given year. More than 300 exhibitors from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Ontario, Canada will be on hand at Heartland Travel Showcase to help you plan and book your tours.
