Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (L.A. Tourism) has bolstered its on-the-ground team with the appointment of Carolyn Nightingale to the full-time role of Travel Trade Manager, Australia & New Zealand.
Nightingale will be responsible for trade relations across the Oceania market for L.A. Tourism, as well as promoting the redevelopment of Los Angeles International Airport, which is in the midst of a USD$14 billion renovation.
Based in L.A. Tourism’s Sydney office, Nightingale will report to Craig Gibbons, Regional Director, Australia and New Zealand.
Commenting on her appointment, Gibbons said, “I’m delighted Carolyn is joining the L.A. Tourism team at such an exciting time for Los Angeles. The city is currently undergoing an extensive revitalisation and redevelopment period, with new hotels, museums and attractions opening and expanding in various neighbourhoods. The Oceania market is L.A.’s second largest overseas visitation market and the ongoing developments will no doubt attract additional Aussie and Kiwi visitors to L.A. over the next few years.”
Prior to joining L.A. Tourism, Nightingale spent seven years as the Business Development Manager at Delta Air Lines. She is familiar with Los Angeles as a prime southern California destination and has extensive knowledge of the Australia and New Zealand market.
