Visit USA’s Expo Week kicked off on Monday in Melbourne with winner of ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’ and Hollywood entertainment reporter Richard Reid taking to the stage as MC, along with Hawthorn Footballer and jungle buddy, Shane Crawford – before a packed room of agents at the Glasshouse at Olympic Park.

US tourism boards, tourism regions, airlines and attractions updated a full house of travel agents on the latest offerings in the USA along with a ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’ themed-quiz round.

Visit USA President, Lucy Rowe said, “Last night’s event was a huge success with a packed audience, new exhibitors and great prizes.  The exhibitors had great booth displays for agents to enjoy including an amazing doughnut wall from Visit Portland!”

A big hit with the agents, Richard Reid was a magnet for the camera, with guests lining up to have their picture taken with the US personality and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here winner.

Prizes were given away in abundance with many agents delighted to win trips to the USA. Kathy Thomaidis from MTA won a great prize: return airfares to LAX with Delta Airlines and Virgin Australia, staying and in Philadelphia and at the Beacon Hotel New York.


The roadshow moved onto Brisbane last night (19 February) and will hit Sydney tonight,  Wednesday 20 February.  Details at

As most in the industry know, Visit USA is funded by the US and Australian travel industry. Visit USA members consist of airlines, wholesalers, tourism bureaus and destination marketing companies who stand collectively to promote travel to the United States, through key trade events in the Australian market – including the highly successful Visit USA Expos.
