Where there had only been one each year in the past, there will be three grand prizes available at the 10th annual AAA Travel Marketplace, March 1-3 at the Putnam Club in Gillette Stadium in Foxborough: All-inclusive vacation packages for two to Italy, Ireland or Bermuda. And given that roughly 17,000 people attend the travel show each year, the odds of winning would seem much better than with the state lottery, said Carl Richardson,travel center director for AAA Southern New England.

To enter, those attending the travel show need only fill out an exit survey when they leave, he said, adding that “given that not everyone does, the odds of winning are even better.” The show is the largest travel booking show in New England, he said, and expects roughly 100 booths to be at the event, many from New England and the northeast, a change from the first years of the show when the focus was mainly tours and cruises.

Admission is $5 at the door for AAA members, or $3 for advance sales on line or through an AAA branch, and $10 and $8 respectively for non-members. For information, visit www.southernnewengland.aaa.com/sne/marketplace
