2015 Visit USA Marketplace heads to Sydney

The annual Visit USA Media Marketplace and Luncheon will take place on 19 February 2015 at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney.

The annual Visit USA Media Marketplace and Luncheon will take place on 19 February 2015 at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney.


The luncheon will provide a chance for Australia’s top travel and lifestyle media, both trade and consumer, to meet with more than 55 representatives from over 40 US tourist offices and travel suppliers.

“The number of Australians travelling to the US continues to grow. In 2013, Australian visitation to the US reached an all-time high of 1.2 million, and continued to grow throughout 2014″

Janette Davie, President of the Visit USA Organisation Australia

“The Visit USA media marketplace and luncheon is a great opportunity for trade and consumer media to meet with representatives from numerous regions and suppliers across the US. It’s great that so many of our US friends are returning in 2015, and we’re also delighted to welcome several new US travel suppliers to the event”.

Chris Petty, United Airlines Regional Sales Manager Australia and New Zealand said, “United is proud to once again sponsor the annual Visit USA media marketplace and luncheon. 2014 was a milestone year for United. We introduced the Boeing 777-200 aircraft to provide customers with inflight entertainment systems and in October celebrated the launch of the non-stop service between Melbourne and Los Angeles with the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner”.

“Sponsoring the Visit USA media lunch is a great way to start the year and show our continued commitment to the Australian market and help connect customers to destinations throughout the United States. To get the year off to a flying start we are offering one lucky guest the opportunity to fly BusinessFirst with United Airlines to the United States”.

Media will have the opportunity to meet with US representatives at both the market place and lunch. Additional one-on-one meetings and interviews can be organised on request.

There will be some amazing prizes given away on the day, including one United BusinessFirst ticket from Sydney – SFO/LAX or MEL-LAX.

The event will run alongside nightly Travel Agent Training and Visit USA Expos in major Australian cities.

The media luncheon is sponsored by the Visit USA Organisation (Australia) & United Airlines.
