Musical MegaFam

Sixty travel agents from across Australia and New Zealand will head to the USA next month, courtesy of Air New Zealand and Brand USA.

The week long MegaFam will see participants split up into six hosted groups, each spending five nights exploring itineraries in various US destinations before gathering in Las Vegas for a grand finale gala dinner.

Brand USA director Australia/NZ Matt Fletcher said the trip would be themed around American music, showcasing the nation’s diversity and collision of cultures. Participants are being selected through an incentive campaign that kicked off last month, with Air New Zealand regional general manager Kathryn Robertson saying the trip was a fantastic opportunity to promote both the Air NZ experience as well as the diversity of the USA. Air NZ currently flies daily from Australia to four US ports via Auckland — Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco — and will add Chicago on 30 November.
