Twenty-nine travel agents and tour operators from nine countries, including Australia and New Zealand, gathered in Oregon last week for a 7 day road trip of the state.
The fam was an opportunity for the group to gain further knowledge of the destination in hopes of expanded itinerary development beyond the traditional USA gateways as consumers look to new destinations to travel to.
The trip began and ended in Portland with agents testing the famous Portland craft beer, Portland Blazers NBA team and goat yoga (keeping up with the Portland tagline “Keeping Portland Weird”).
Agents then continued exploring the state’s Oregon Coast, Southern Oregon and the famous Crate Lake National Park and the Willamette Valley, known for it’s Pinot Noir.
Australian trade included Bradly Baldwin – Helloworld Travel, Melanie Landick – Travel Utopia, Rebecca Healy – Echuca Travel Centre, Belinda Condon – United Airlines and Corey Marshall, Account Director AU/NZ – Travel Oregon. Flights were thanks to United Airlines.
New Zealand trade included Bailey Gorst from Adventure World and Leigh Refugia from House of Travel along with Corey Marshall, Account Director Canuckiwi. Flights were thanks to Air New Zealand.
