Three lucky agents have won places on this year’s Brand USA MegaFam after proving themselves to be quiz champions at roadshows across the country.
Laura Callaghan of The American Road Trip Company, Travel 2’s Layla Macowan and Travel Counsellor Cathie O’Dea were each victorious at events in Manchester, Glasgow and London, respectively.
The fam trip, which takes place from May 10-18, is organised by the destination marketing organisation for the US and supported by American Airlines and British Airways.
Callaghan, who also went on the MegaFam in 2016, said she “couldn’t wait” to share her experiences on the fam with colleagues.
“It’s such a valuable trip and really helps to grow your product knowledge,” she said.
O’Dea said she was most excited about “all the new ideas” attending the MegaFam would give her to help create her clients’ stateside holidays.
Brand USA has also revealed the list of tour leaders for its 2017 MegaFam. The Golden Silver Sights itinerary will be led by Gerry Boyle; Allie Williams will lead Trails & Treasures; Emily Taylor will take Stocks & Springs; Jennifer Guiver will lead the Cultural Courses itinerary; Sarah Barnett will host Beaches & Blues; and Polly Beech will take Navigate New England; and Chris Ellis will lead the Pure Shores itinerary.
