Next Week, fifty five travel agents from America who specialise in selling Australia to the world will touch down in Byron Bay at the Byron at Byron resort to meet with 50 of the best Australian and New Zealand suppliers in the travel industry.
Attendees will include Crown Hotels, Virgin Australia, Sydney Opera House, Bridgeclimb and Let’s Go Surfing. The event previously held in New Zealand is a first for Australia and this coincides with The Byron at Byron Resort & Spa being chose as a must visit destination.
A popular destination for travellers around the world, Byron Bay allows Down Under Answers (DUA) to offer their agents a ‘true Aussie experience’. DUA, owned by Kirk Demeter from Seattle, is one of the biggest wholesale agents sending American tourists to Australia and New Zealand, contributing to the vast influx of American tourists visiting Down Under
Byron Bay is an area that all of us at DUA have really enjoyed over the years, we feel that bringing some of the USA’s top sellers of Australia for a stay at the luxury resort will really open up some great opportunities. Access to Byron Bay from both Sydney and Brisbane is good, which makes it easy to incorporate into itineraries, the weather is great, nature, food and wine, adventure and just pure relaxation are ideal in this location. That’s why I chose the Byron at Byron Resort for this event.Kirk Demeter, Owner of Down Under Answers
The travel agents will want to meet the suppliers and better understand their product, catch up with suppliers they already use and get updates. From the region, they’ll want to understand why putting Byron Bay on an itinerary is such an enhancement for the US traveller”.
