Visit USA has announced a host of exciting updates ahead of the Visit USA Expos kicking off across the nation this month. Shaping up to be the best yet, the expos are packed full of American amazingness.

Think great entertainment, sponsors and exhibitors, and of course fab venues, food, and prizes!

(We all know how much agents LOVE prizes!)

Plus… Richard Reid is BACK!

“The Visit USA 2020 Expos not only offer direct access to US travel suppliers, they’re a great night out for agents. Packed with entertainment, world-class music, and an impressive list of prizes on offer – the expos are both informative and lots of fun”,

Lucy Rowe, President of Visit USA (Australia).


Hi Richard

Visit USA Expo

Richard Reid

The vibrant and witty Richard Reid is joining the Visit USA Expos once again – this time heading to Perth, Adelaide and the Gold Coast.

The Hollywood reporter is known for his quirky, comical and upbeat celebrity coverage, and of course, taking out the crown in Australia’s “I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here”.

Reid will host the expos and will be on the hunt for the “Top Agent” in each city, wowing and entertaining agents as he goes!

Attendees at the Visit USA expos in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane will be serenaded by world-class musicians who are in town to provide a sneak peek of the upcoming Texas Music Takeover taking place across Sydney in April.

The taster, sponsored by Visit Dallas and Visit Fort Worth, will feature Sam Riggs, an American Country Music singer-songwriter with over 30 million streams on Spotify, and the uber-talented Joey Green, an established country music rocker, you may recognise from The Voice (US Season 15)!
