The Visit USA Nationwide Expos continues in October, with the final 2 shows to be held in the Gold Coast on 21 October and the Sunshine Coast on 22 October, sponsored by Hawaiian Airlines.
The Visit USA Nationwide Expos are a series of trade shows held in major Australian regional cities. The expos offer the chance to meet with representatives from tourist offices, hotels, airlines and attractions and find out what’s new in the USA to share with your clientele.
The expos include a short formal USA presentation, one on one presentations and additional time to interact with participants after the conclusion of formal proceedings.
There will be prize giveaways, including one return airfare to Honolulu thanks to Hawaiian Airways, and entertainment on the night as well as substantial refreshments.
The roadshow has been a huge success so far, with more than 120 travel agents attending the Newcastle and Wollongong expos in September and 15 US exhibitors in attendance. The lucky winners of one return airfare to Honolulu via Fiji, thanks to Hawaiian Airways were Hayley Russell from italktravel, Maitland, Newcastle and Tina Berry from helloworld Wollongong on Burelli.
“It’s exciting to see that our program of nationwide expos is valued by so many Travel Consultants, and by our members, who are all US product specialists. Ongoing education is an important part of the Visit USA charter, together with growing the visitor numbers.”
