Visit USA Organisation launch new social handles & ambassador badge
The United States travel trade tourism authority in Australia, Visit USA Organisation (Visit USA)has launched new social handles and a new URL to better serve Australian travel agents, as a source of engagement and communication.
Adopting the handle @usatraveltrade for Facebook, Twitter, plus Instagram and a new URL www.usatraveltrade.com, Visit USA hopes to demonstrate the support they offer to travel agents, Australia-wide.
Content on the social networks and website will be built up in coming months to promote new US itineraries for 2018, top travel tips for agents when selling the USA, prize giveaways, agent discounts on travel to the USA, webinar announcements, as well as local event happenings coordinated by Visit USA in Australia.
Complimenting the new social handles, Visit USA has uploaded a complimentary downloadable travel agent ambassador badge on-line at www.usatraveltrade.com. The badge is for travel agents to download and add to their USA travel quotes, itineraries, or signatures endorsing the individual consultant or agency as a USA holiday specialist.

As a travel industry led organisation, Visit USA Organisation Australia endorses the booking process through travel agents, and strives to ensure we provide a service that can support and endorse the great work travel agents undertake in selling the United States.
“Our new social handles will serve to support travel agents with the tools they need to sell the United States, while our complimentary ambassador badge is a means of demonstrating Visit USA’s appreciation to the service travel agents provide to consumers booking a holiday to the USA.”
