Visit USA Pavilion Launches At Destinations, The Holiday & Travel Show

DESTINATIONS, The Holiday & Travel Show at EventCity (Jan 15-18) has a dedicated VISIT USA Pavilion for the first time. It’s in response to the unprecedented numbers flying out of Manchester Airport to North America – over 936,000 in 2014 with an eight per cent increase in passengers heading for the USA.

The Pavilion, at Stand USA1 in the heart of the North America section, will offer the largest ever selection of US tourist boards and tour operators.

Chris Bradford, Product and Commercial Manager for My America Holiday, exhibiting at Destinations 2015, revealed that the company’s bookings with a Manchester departure have grown by 23 per cent in the last six months. 

He said: “We’ve noticed a large increase in bookings from Manchester, which is predominately due to the increase in capacity on the direct routes from Manchester to America. You can now fly direct from Manchester to Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York, Miami, Orlando and Philadelphia and we are sure that the VISIT USA Pavilion will prove very popular.”

Manchester Airport has approximately 45 flights a week to the USA including New York, Chicago, Atlanta and Washington depending on the time of year. From March, capacity on the Manchester to Atlanta service will increase as Virgin Atlantic take over the route and Delta will be serving a new route to New York. 2015 will also see Manchester being the only airport outside London to have a direct flight to Miami.

USA Exhibitors confirmed to participate in Destinations 2015 include Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Deep South USA, North Carolina, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, North America Travel Service, My America Holidays, Kentucky Travel and United Airlines.
 
The show promises to be a great day out and a source of inspiration for all passionate travellers and will also take place in London from January 29-Feb1. Advance day tickets cost just £8 and kids go free (aged under 16). Tickets can be booked online here or on 0871 230 7141 (calls cost 10p per minute plus network extras).

In addition to the exhibitors showcasing destinations from all over the world there is a line-up of celebrity appearances including TV presenter Simon Reeve, travel adventurer and TV Presenter Charley Boorman, and author, cook and TV Presenter Martin Dorey. The show will run alongside the co-located Caravan & Motorhome Show, showcasing the latest caravans, motorhomes and accessories from over 200 exhibitors.
