Ausmerica Mega Famil Ready To Take Off

November 19, 2013 Agents Incentives No Comments Email Email

Brand USA, in conjunction with Qantas, are hosting the first ever joint Mega Famil to the US next week as part of their Ausmerica campaign.

Today 50 travel agents nation-wide will head off to experience eight fabulous days in the USA.  The participants will initially be split into five groups of ten agents and one Brand USA host. Each group will spend the first five nights exploring New York and Massachusetts, Arizona, Texas, Louisiana or Florida.

The final two nights will see the entire group come together in Los Angeles for further sightseeing as well as an evening event at The Globe Theatre hosted by Brand USA, Qantas and Universal Studios Hollywood, where they can share their Mega Famil stories and experiences.

During the trip, each group will get a taste of directing their own short film to be shown in Hollywood! The groups will be handed a GoPro camera and charged with making a fun movie, starring a character from Universal Studios. The group are required to incorporate their character into showcasing their adventures in the destination they visit.

Upon arrival in LA, professional editors will turn their footage into a short film which will be showcased at the event at Universal Studios with some exciting prizes and awards up for grabs for the winning team!

The 50 participants were selected based on volume of Qantas sales to the US during the recent Ausmericacampaign. “We’re so excited to be showcasing the broad diversity of the USA to this group of travel agents,” saysJoe Ponte, Strategy Director for Brand USA in Australia and New Zealand.

Qantas operates double daily A380 services from Sydney and Melbourne to Los Angeles, a daily B747 service from Brisbane to Los Angeles (effective 2 December), a daily B747 Sydney to New York service and daily B747 Sydney to Dallas service.

Qantas is the only carrier to operate A380 services with four cabins between Australia and the US, and the award winning lie flat Business Skybed onboard its reconfigured B747 services to the US.

Brand USA is the newly created public and private partnership charged with promoting travel to the USA.
