Brand USA, the destination marketing organisation for the United States, in partnership with American Airlines and British Airways, has revealed details of the seven brand-new itineraries for the UK & Ireland MegaFam 2019.
Taking place from 9 – 17 May 2019, the multi-destination trip will see 100 travel agents from the UK and Ireland simultaneously partake in seven itineraries across 18 states of the USA, experiencing a range of destinations and product areas.
After travelling on one of the seven itineraries, the agents will come together in Phoenix / Scottsdale, Arizona. During their time in Arizona’s metropolitan centre, the agents will share their experiences with one another, with the goal of enabling all attendees to better sell the destinations upon their return to the UK & Ireland.
