Now in its thirteenth year, G’Day USA has been bringing together industry leaders and key influencers in government, business, tourism, academia and the arts to cultivate and enhance the Australia/United States relationship.
Helloworld senior leadership members Cinzia Burnes and Gregory Lording were in LA for the recent G’Day USA program of events.
Qantas is a major sponsor of the program and CEO Alan Joyce and senior Qantas staff hosted an exclusive VIP welcome reception at the new A380 hanger at LAX and guests included Cinzia Burnes, executive director Helloworld Limited and Gregory Lording, Group GM Helloworld Wholesale.
“There are in excess of 680,000 Americans visiting Australia every year and they represent one of the highest per capita spends while on their holidays. It is terrific to be able to celebrate this great association at G’Day USA,” said Burnes.
“The USA is an important market to Australia and one that the wholesale arm of Helloworld, Qantas Vacations who are based in LA, continues to work towards growing,” she added.
