The final Visit USA Travel Agent Expo of the year, held in Canberra this week, had a great turn out of high calibre travel agents. A packed house of ACT agents mingled with key USA experts over breakfast on Wednesday, 23 September 2015. The event was so popular that Visit USA members reported go-shows, a rarity in this industry especially when it is an early start.
There was a remarkable 390 years of travel agent experience in selling travel to the USA in the room and yet they are still enthusiastic about updating their knowledge and promoting the destination. The newest agent to be selling USA travel had just one month’s experience with the destination and the most experienced was an amazing 44 years of promoting holidays to the United States.
Agents were reminded that their experience can earn them AU$500 through Visit USA’s Facebook and Twitter competition for the best tip for travelling in USA.
Danica Gallagher of Fiji Airways presented Craig Williams of Woden Flight Centre with his Fiji Airways return air ticket to Los Angeles. Many agents left with wonderful prizes and grins from ear to ear.
