Travel Expo is an annual event that takes place in Seattle, WA. The objective of the event is to help grow the travel and tourism industry as a whole. Many destinations and provider of travel/tourism services, especially in Washington State that doesn't have a tourism office, are underrepresented and need a platform that brings their target audience to them, which generates brand awareness and additional revenue through purchase power.
Our mission is to create an equal platform for all businesses and destinations, regardless of being large or small, from the travel and tourism industry to promote themselves. We achieve this by following these simple points:
- • Keeping our exhibitor cost low
- • Creating a fun and entertaining event for all visitors
- • Promoting our exhibitors to increase their ROI
Since childhood Al Lawati had a passion for traveling. He has traveled the world and lived in three continents. He also has a passion for marketing, which he has been professionally doing since 2005. By combining these two passions, Al decided to create Travel Expo in order to help grow the travel and tourism industry as a whole.
He always wanted to help small businesses, which this event allows him to do. This is achieved by creating an equal platform that promotes both large and small business in the travel and tourism industry.
When he moved from Miami to Seattle, he realized the Washington State is the only state in the United States that does not have a tourism office. Therefore, he took it upon himself to help the underrepresented provider of travel and tourism products and services.
