The New York Times Travel Show, Day 1

The New York Times Travel Show is a spectacular international celebration, sharing insight on valuable travel tips at seminars hosted by experts in the field. Attendees learned about domestic and international hot spots, familiar favorites and under-the radar crowd-free escapes. I spent 2 days photographing this magical event. Here are some highlights from Day 1.
