Travel Shows

Join the Tourism Division as we hit the road to take the Kansas message across the region. Meet potential visitors (and trip planners) face-to-face at these travel shows. After several years of participating in these shows, we have culled the list to include only those shows with high attendance and engagement with audience members.​
