2023 Black Travel Expo!
For the second year, the Black Travel Expo (BTE) is hosting its annual conference to bring together some of the best and brightest Black travel professionals and enthusiasts. BTE is excited to host its 3-day conference in the city of Atlanta on June 9-11, 2023. BTE is proud to announce The Gathering Spot as its conference location Atlanta.
BTE is making it easier for people of color to learn more about the travel industry, plan their next vacation, find out who’s who in the travel industry, and meet travel leaders and influencers.
Initially motivated by the game-changing Black Travel Alliance (BTA) and MMGY Global report on Black U.S. leisure travel, the Black Travel Expo’s founder and CEO Maurice Foley took action to fill an obvious need for a travel event curated for and catered towards people of color. With spending among Black travelers reaching a remarkable $109.4 billion in 2019, Mr. Foley sought to create the expo to provide a platform specifically for Black travel consumers and entrepreneurs.
In addition to immersive networking opportunities and panel discussions, the expo will also feature travel-related exhibitors within its on-site BTE Marketplace during the conference. Industry leaders at the expo will share the latest travel news, trends, and inspiration for future travel.
Last year’s influential list of speakers included Denella Ri’chard (Travel Executive Producer and TV host of “Traveling with Denella Ri’chard”), Jay Cameron (Founder and CEO of Maximum Impact), and Nubia Younge (Founder & CEO of Black in Tulum). This year’s lineup of speakers and areas of focus will be announced in early 2023.
The Black Travel Expo is the first Black travel consumer and trade expo to be hosted in Atlanta. Registration is now open!.
