From Jungle to The Stage Richard Reid Delights Agents
Visit USA’s Expo Week kicked off last night 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 – to 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 was a magnet to 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 also given away in abundance with many agents celebrating with trips won to the USA.
The roadshow now moves onto Brisbane tonight (19 February) and Sydney on Wednesday 20 February.
