He’s got the sassy personality, all the celebrity gossip & a naturally alluring presence that’ll keep hundreds of consultants entertained during the 2019 Visit USA Expos.

He’s Richard Reid and he’s returning to the travel industry to host the 2019 Visit USA Expos.

Event organisers confirmed this morning that Reid would once again MC the annual event after successfully hosting the showcase in previous years.

Brace yourselves for the laughs and the warm embraces!


For those sheltered from the world of Kardashians, pop stars and morning chat shows, Reid is a contagious bubble of positivity who delivers daily celebrity gossip to Channel Nine’s TODAY show. He’s also a favourite on the current season of Network 10’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

Not letting his busy TV schedule get in the way, Reid has agreed to MC the SOLD OUT Visit USA Expos running from 18-20 February 2019.

Visit USA President Lucy Rowe said she’s thrilled to have Reid onboard again, along with 80 US exhibitors and official airline sponsors Delta Air Lines and Virgin Australia.

“It’s partnerships like this, that make our events such a success.”

Rowe continued, saying that some 900 Travel Advisors have registered for the this year’s event, demonstrating “the high demand for the U.S., the quality of shows and the support by amazing members”.

Melbourne will host the first Visit USA Expo on 18 February at The Glasshouse, followed by Brisbane on 19 February at Howard Smith Wharves, and Sydney on 20 February at the Hilton Sydney.

“Each year the events get bigger and more interactive,” Rowe said.

“There are some great prizes to be won, fun to be had and lots of exciting new information to provide agents with the tools they need to be the most competitive in their field.”
