Linkd Tourism, well known for sales, marketing and PR representation in Australia and New Zealand, has appointed former Disney Destinations Business Development Manager, Michael Cassis, to take the lead on developing the trade marketing program for its Japan clients, as well as some of Linkd Tourism’s U.S. destinations.

Based at the Gold Coast office in Burleigh Heads, Michael in his first weeks as Trade Account Manager has engaged agents throughout Australia and New Zealand on behalf of Ishikawa and Gifu prefectures, including the production of new agent training material and newsletter communications. His role will be developed to incorporate the promotion of some of the company’s U.S. destinations to the trade, in addition to the portfolio of Japanese contracted and project-based partners.

Michael began his career in the travel industry in 2006 as a Team Leader and International Travel Consultant at Flight Centre before progressing to Infinity Holidays as a Wholesale Reservations Agent and later stepping into marketing as Infinity’s Marketing Manager for the USA. In his National Travel Business Development Manager role at Disney Destinations, Michael promoted six of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts’ global Theme Park, Resort and Cruise Line businesses in the Australian and New Zealand market, in which he played an integral role in welcoming the delegation at the newly opened Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for IPW 2019 in Anaheim.

Of his new role, Michael commented “I’m really excited to join the Linkd Tourism team and promote some of my favourite destinations, including Japan and the USA. I look forward to supporting agents in up-skilling and educating the trade on the fantastic sights and experiences in these destinations, readying for the reopening of the borders and beyond.”

Managing Director of Linkd Tourism, Kylee Kay, added “It’s been an absolute pleasure working with and alongside Michael for several years and I’m thrilled to have his enthusiasm and experience on board.”
