The Destination Theater, sponsored by AAA, is where travelers will receive destination-specific information from local experts containing information on when to go, how to get there, what to see and local, off the beaten path attractions from destinations such as Arizona, Australia and Canada.
The Taste of Travel Theater highlights top chefs who present live cooking demonstrations right on the show floor. Featuring cuisines from around the world, guests will have the opportunity to taste samples and get a full cultural experience in a stadium-seating styled theater.
