The BTE is the one stop for the black traveling public to learn about new destinations within the United States and internationally. It is the place to hear amazing travel stories, receive great advice, learn how to travel smart, and find out who’s who in the black travel industry. Most importantly, buy and support black travel entrepreneurs, products, services, and brands over one weekend and under one roof.

The COVID19 pandemic has had an immense global impact on all of us and has claimed many Black fellow travelers. My deepest condolences go out to the people who have lost a loved one and to the people who have suffered.
I would like to personally welcome each of you to the Black Travel Expo. It’s an exciting time for the Black travel industry as we continue to grow during a time of many challenges. The travel industry will once again be an exciting world in which to work, study and play, and it is my goal to bring inspired people together in forums like this. The Black Travel Expo will provide a platform for travel consumers, entrepreneurs, influencers, industry leaders and journalist to help define the future roadmap of Black travel and tourism.
I’d like to thank each of you for supporting this necessary weekend event. As the traveling public, we can all work together in creating the vision, education, and experience in order to help all of us pave the way into the future of travel. You are truly our greatest asset today and tomorrow, and this endeavor could not be accomplished without your support. Throughout this expo, I ask you to stay engaged, stay motivated, and stay involved so that we all contribute to shaping the future of our travel community.
My personal respect and thanks to all of you and I look forward to personally welcoming each of you to the Black Travel Expo.
