Las Vegas thrives because of the tourist, whether it's the independent traveler who vacations or spends weekends here or the road warrior who attends trade shows or conventions.

What do they have in common?

They all need products that will make their travels easier.

Some of the newest travel products and accessories were on display in Las Vegas this week at the Travel Goods Association trade show. More than 300 companies exhibited at the show, which drew about 3,500 people to the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Among the industry innovations are a vest that offers built-in baggage pouches and gives new meaning to the term carry-on, luggage with built-in shelves — eliminating the need to unpack — and carry-on bags that are easier than standard products to tote through Transportation Security Administrationcheckpoints at airports.

Here are a few of the items on display at this year’s travel products show.

  • The Scottevest

    For the traveler who wants to wear his or her luggage through the security line comes the Scottevest, a lightweight vest with 24 pockets, including one large enough to carry a laptop computer or iPad. Skip Warner showed off the vest, which incorporates a “Personal Area Network” for music system wiring inside the collar and a pocket with clear-touch fabric that enables a user to access a smartphone screen without removing the device from the pocket. The company also showed Scottevest travel boxers made of lightweight fast-drying material. Rinse them out in a sink and they’re dry in a half-hour. Not only could you wear the same boxers day after day, but they also have a couple of pockets.
