East Coast USA Mission Inspired Agents And Now a Select Few Have the Chance to Experience It for Themselves
The East Coast USA Mission saw the largest East Coast contingent to-date visit Australia and New Zealand, with 26 destination and product partners in attendance. Those represented included suppliers from New York City, New York State, New England, Philadelphia and Washington DC.
The aim was to inspire and educate the trade on the depth and breadth of experiences on offer, and to promote the ease of connectivity within the East Coast region.
Agents in Auckland, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane were brought up to speed on new developments, hotels, events and attractions within the region. The East Coast USA delegation highlighted the region’s pristine natural beauty, including icons like Niagara Falls, stunning coastline, culinary delights, and big city experiences all found in this diverse pocket of America.
Ten lucky agents from Australia and New Zealand also won a place on an East Coast USA familiarisation, October 23-29, flying American Airlines. The winners are Shernaz Engineer (Flight Centre NZ), Thaddeus D’Souza (Flight Centre NZ), Erica Slutzkin (FBI Intelligent Travel), Di Decker (Escape Travel), Kate Turner (Flight Centre), Samantha Neill (Flight Centre), Karlee Sinderman (Helloworld Circular Quay), Louise McCarthy (Travel Managers), Cheryl Perkins (Redcliffe Cruise and Travel) and Larry Sayer (Cruise About).
