Paint the town red white and blue at the Visit USA Seminars

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: C.F The Americans are set to paint the town red, white and blue when they make their annual trip to Australia for the Visit USA Seminars next week.  Australian travel agents are encouraged to attend the seminars to learn how they can best promote the US to their clients.The US will mean big business for agents in 2010, thanks to a never-before seen exchange rate, which has remained between the 80-90 cent mark.There will also be a number of great airfare deals to the USA from Australia this year and both Delta and Virgin have increased their capacity between the two countries. Last year when many other travel destinations suffered from the effects of the GFC, Australian visitor arrivals to the U.S continued to prosper, increasing by 4.3% during the January-November period.  In November, Australian visitation was up 27% from the previous year and Visit USA expects this positive trend to continue throughout 2010. Getaway TV Presenter, Catriona Rowntree will host this years’ Visit USA Expos, which will be held in Melbourne (15 February), Brisbane (16 February) and Sydney (17 February).  Travel industry attendees will have the opportunity to network with 30 visiting USA suppliers, 12 Tourism Bureaux and local representatives from major wholesalers, airlines, accommodation, attraction and car & camper rental companies including: Air Canada, Air New Zealand, Air Pacific, Apollo Motorhome Holidays, Asia/Pacific Travel Marketing,  Avis, Choice Hotels, Creative Holidays, Delta Airlines, Discover the World Marketing, Disney Destinations International, DriveAway Holidays, Explore Holidays, Hawaiian Airlines, Hertz, Insight Vacations, Intrepid Travel, Marriott International, Travel 2, United Vacations & United Airlines, V Australia, Qantas & Viva Holidays.For more information about the Visit USA Seminars, please visit: <a href=”” target=”_blank”><img src=”;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a>last_img
