I've always been excited about the prospect of visiting America. Perhaps it's the influence of watching so many television shows and films, or being constantly exposed to their music and pop culture, but the country has always held a certain appeal, and has long been on my list of places to visit.
So it was with some excitement that a friend and I recently planned a trip to Northern USA for the year 2013. On visiting our local travel agency, we were told of an upcoming travel expo that deals specifically with people wishing to travel to America, Canada and Alaska. To be held at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre on Sunday 12th August (from 10am to 5pm), the travel expo will feature exclusive deals and discounts, hundreds of travel options (including tours, accommodation, flights, and entertainment ideas), as well as the opportunity to hear presentations from travel experts who have traversed the majestic landscapes of these countries.
All people who book their holiday and make a deposit on the day also go into the draw to win one of seven $1000 Travel Gift Cards, which could come in very handy indeed.
Supplement your knowledge with travel guides, or head along and speak to people who know everything in the guides and more!
This expo has been organised by several well-known travel agencies - Flight Centre, Escape Travel, Student Flights, Cruiseabout and Intrepid My Adventure Store- who operate under the same umbrella company. Because of this, you can be guaranteed that all the travel information you receive will be accurate, up-to-date and cover the best that the USA, Canada and Alaska have to offer. With plenty of stalls to browse through, and representatives from all the major travel companies (including airlines and tour groups) under the one roof, you will easily be able to organise and book your entire trip. What's more, entry is free, so why not take advantage and get down to the Melbourne Exhibition Centre on Sunday? Your wallet will thank you for it.
Flight Centre is just one of the travel agencies that have put this expo together
