These missions provide a cost-effective way to connect with travel professionals, influencers and the media in target regions. The missions are generally conducted in partnership with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Bureau, Brand USA or Visit USA and frequently involve other members of the Nevada tourism industry. These missions offer an ideal opportunity to showcase several experiences available to individual travelers, groups and journalists writing about the destination.

From PR and marketing campaigns to sales and industry programs, every service we offer our partners is driven by careful consideration of combined proprietary research conducted by our vendors (TNS for visitor research and advertising effectiveness studies, Dean Runyan for economic impact studies, as well as U.S. Travel Association, Brand USA and others), and studies conducted by the tourism and vertical consumer brand marketing industries.
