Flying the flag in the USA
Destination Britain North America (DBNA)
We are strengthening York’s profile overseas this month by meeting with operators at the Destination Britain and North America show in Las Vegas and by hosting the UK Inbound ‘Discover York’ workshop at the Cedar Court Grand, targeting international tour operators.
Visit York will attend Destination Britain North America (DBNA) held in Las Vegas from 14-16 September, followed by World Routes in Chicago from 20-23 September. Over 90 North American travel product buyers will attend the event in Las Vegas hosted by Visit Britain and we’ll set up a series of one-to-one appointments with buyers. This will give Visit York the ideal platform to sell the city and encourage operators and agents to feature York in their forthcoming programmes and itineraries.
In addition we’re linking up with Group Travel Organiser magazine to run a York familiarisation visit, focusing on the historic houses of York (Oct). We will also be sharing a stand with Leeds Bradford International Airport and Leeds & Partners at the World Routes event in Chicago, where we will be looking to secure new airline routes into the region.
