Voluntary travel body Visit USA Australia has announced the return of Richard Reid as MC for its 2019 travel agent expos this month, which are now sold out.
Known as a celebrity gossip guru, Reid (pictured above) has been busy surviving in the jungle on the latest season of Network 10’ I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!.
In addition, Delta Air Lines and Virgin Australia have been announced as the official airline sponsors for the Visit USA expos, sponsoring airfare giveaways for the major travel agent prize draws at each expo event for the third consecutive year.
The Visit USA expos are the biggest event on the industry calendar promoting the Americas. Over 80 US companies are exhibiting at the 2019 expo series, with 68 booth spaces booked in Sydney.
The expo roadshow will kick off at The Glasshouse in Melbourne on Monday 18 February, before heading to Howard Smith Wharves in Brisbane on Tuesday 19 February, and then finishing at Hilton Sydney on Wednesday 20 February.
Visit USA president Lucy Rowe said: “We are so thrilled the Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney Visit USA shows have been sold out, with over 900 agents registered.
“It really demonstrates the high demand for the US, the quality of the shows and the support by our amazing members. This year, we have the highest number of exhibitors participating than ever before, including many new members.
“We’re thrilled to once again align with Richard Reid as our MC, as well as Delta Air Lines and Virgin Australia as our official airline partners. It’s partnerships like this that make our events such a success.
“Each year the events get bigger and more interactive. 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.”
