Over the course of the last two weeks a group of the top wholesale & tour operator partners in Australia & New Zealand converged in Nevada to take part in the 2016 Nevada Governor’s Tourism Summit, which was held, at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada. The summit was an opportunity to learn about international tourism trends, market updates and at the same time put our Aussie & Kiwi contingent in an opportune position to meet with more than 400 other Nevada based destination & supplier delegates over the two and a half day summit. http://governorssummit.org
Prior to the conference the partners in attendance attended one of two FAM tours put on by Travel Nevada.
The Parks & Nature
FAM program saw the group explore the natural side of Nevada but not before they started with racing their chosen car at Speed Vegas. This program included a Helicopter Tour that landed in the Grand Canyon, Valley of Fire State Park, Cathedral Valley, Great Basin National Park and of course Lake Tahoe.
The Ghost’s and Ghaunts program saw some of the group explore the “spookier” side of Nevada with overnight stops in Las Vegas, Carson City, Tonopah, Rhyolite that inspired many an eerie tale.
Zoe Macfarlane of Jucy commented, “ Huge thank you for the invitation to the Nevada Global Tourism Summit – it was a great three days with some useful information to apply to our business plans, website and itinerary growth and to forward to our sales team. It was also awesome to meet so man
The Nevada Tourism Summit is an annual event that will take place in October or November each year.
