Orlando taps UK market
Visit Orlando, the official tourism association for the most visited destination in the US, will hit the road in March for the destination's first-ever UK roadshow, delivering a robust schedule of training events to tourism and travel agents across the country.
Hosted alongside theme park partners Disney World Resorts Florida, SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment and Universal Orlando Resort, the Orlando Roadshow will take place over eight days in the lead-up to the summer season.
Each session will provide a comprehensive look at new developments in Orlando including what's new at the region's theme parks, shopping, dining and ticket options.
"The action-packed sessions will not only arm agents with the tools they need to better sell Orlando, but sixteen lucky agents will walk away with a trip to Orlando through a confirmed spot on the annual Orlando Super Fam," the tourist board stated.
"Due to limited capacity, agents are encouraged to secure their place now by emailing their name and venue of interest."
