Visit USA Australia launches online Expo marketplace for travel trade
Visit USA Organisation (Australia) has launched a new, and environmentally friendly, online marketplace developed to streamline communications and contact between travel agents and visiting American tourism industry professionals before, during and after the Visit USA Expos in Australia in February.
The new platform will have three components:
- An online marketplace where members can network, store and browse brochures, and upload press releases;
- A daily e-newsletter summarising the latest updates to the online marketplace, including new brochures and releases plus upcoming events;
- Connect and follow functionality to stay in touch and up-to-date with members’ profiles and their travel plans.
The daily newsletters will begin one week prior to the February Expos and will continue for the duration of the shows, allowing attendees to supply their news directly to Australian travel agents, and allowing travel agents to familiarise themselves with the exhibitors and connect with visiting attendees.
