Convention Center January 28-29, today announced the schedule of world-class travel experts, hands-on activities, regional cooking demonstrations and cultural performances being presented at the highly-anticipated 14th-annual event.

The Travel Show will also feature activities designed to provide a mini-vacation in the heart of downtown L.A. Attendees will have the opportunity to hop on an exhilarating zip line presented by Ecuador Ministry of Tourism, "walk on water" inside bubble rollers, climb a rock wall and glide down a rappel tower. The show's Culinary Stage, sponsored by Tourism Ireland, will serve samples of regional and exotic cuisine. Performers representing cultures from Africa to Japan will also add to the international atmosphere and The Times' award-winning Photo staff will be shooting exclusive souvenir photos.
