Visit USA Australia Inc (Visit USA) announced the return of Richard Reid as MC for its 2019 ‘Sold Out’ Visit USA Expos in February.  In addition, Delta Air Lines and Virgin Australia have been announced as the official airline sponsors.

Visit USA President, Lucy Rowe said, “We are so thrilled the Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney Visit USA shows have been ‘sold out’, with over 900 agents registered.  It really demonstrates the high demand for the U.S., the quality of the shows and the support by our amazing members.  This year we have the highest number of exhibitors participating than ever before, including many new members”.

Not letting Gossip Guru Richard Reid‘s busy TV schedule get in the way of his most important gig of the year, it has been confirmed Reid will once again grace the stage as the official MC of the annual Visit USA Expo series to be held February 18-22.  Reid has only been in the jungle a short while on Network 10’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Hereand already he is proving to be one of the show favourites.

In addition, it has been announced that Delta Air Lines and Virgin Australia will be the official airline sponsors for the Visit USA Expos, sponsoring airfare giveaways for the major travel agent prize draws at each expo event, for the third consecutive year.

The Visit USA travel agent expos are the biggest event on the industry calendar promoting the Americas; over 80 US companies are exhibiting at the 2019 expo series with 68 booth spaces booked in Sydney.

Dates and venues:

  • Melbourne – Monday 18 February, The Glasshouse
  • Brisbane – Tuesday 19 February, Howard Smith Wharves
  • Sydney – Wednesday 20 February, Hilton Sydney

Commenting on the partnership, Visit USA President Lucy Rowe said, “As a voluntary body that promotes travel to the United States of America, Visit USA’s primary focus is to make our annual expo series a success for all our member exhibitors and travel agent guests.  We’re thrilled to once again align with Richard Reid as our MC as well as Delta Air Lines and Virgin Australia as our official airline partners.  It’s partnerships like this, that make our events such a success.

Each year the events get bigger and more interactive.  There are some great prizes to be won, fun to be had and lots of exciting new information to provide agents with the tools they need to be the most competitive in their field,” said Rowe.
