International

Nevada’s world-renowned urban centers, mountain resorts, authentic western culture, Native American regions, national and state parks, outdoor adventure and wide-open spaces offer great appeal for international travelers.   With non-stop and one-stop connections from many of the world’s most active inbound travel regions and the country’s gateway cities, Nevada is an appealing destination for first-time and seasoned international travelers – which is why over six million international visitors traveled to Nevada in 2018 according to Tourism Economics.

Sales/Media Missions

Each year, Travel Nevada conducts and/or participates in a number of sales and media missions to each of our identified international markets. 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, as well as to offer partners opportunities to meet with leading travel agents, tour operators, airlines and the media in key growth markets.

Australia and New Zealand

“Nevada is such a great state for Aussies and Kiwis.

Aussies and Kiwis are experiential travelers. We don’t want to stop for a photo. We want to explore, discover, touch, climb, and hike. We don’t want to pass by. We want to stop and chat, ask questions, and immerse ourselves in other parts of the world. We don’t want to tick boxes on a travel list. We want to step out of the box and create our own unexpected list.

We come back with stories and experiences we didn’t expect, ones we couldn’t experience at home.

From sudden motorcycle rallies at old saloons… to staying in a haunted 1900s hotel in the middle of the desert… to wandering through ghost towns… to attempting to finish a Monster Burger while Top Gun fighter planes fly over…. to riding electric bicycles around stunning Red Rock Canyon just 45 minutes from Las Vegas…

Nevada offers so many unique stories we can’t wait to share when we get back home.”

-Corey Marshall, CTP

Canuckiwi, Australia & New Zealand

Travel Nevada added Australia to its international markets in 2012. Australia is a holistically ideal market for Nevada and has especially great potential for rural Nevada. Travel Nevada is represented in Australia and New Zealand by Canuckiwi.

Canada

“We are excited to show Canadians that Nevada is open to visitors and offers home-town comfort, historical sites, breathtaking national parks, and the entertainment hub; Las Vegas.

With the wide array of endless experiences, the State of Nevada not only offers bright, star-studded skies but the exuberant lights of the Las Vegas Strip; an experience like no other and a proven desire for Canadians alike.

But Nevada isn’t only about experiencing activities, it’s about the feeling you get while visiting. It’s the feeling of disconnecting and going offline, or as we like to say, “unfenced.”

We invite Canadians to let loose and get #Unfenced in Nevada!”

-Karly Melo, PR Manager

China

“Chinese citizens are having increasing consumer power and nowadays, as travelers, are seeking uniqueness they cannot find in China. As a relatively unexplored destination, Chinese travelers – especially the FIT travelers in first-tier cities – fall in love with Nevada’s different beauty of nature and rich tourism resources. They are seeking various experiences rather than just a one-time visit.

Nevada’s Native American cultures, the vast state and national parks, the wild cowboy events, the long driving routes and special experiences like Burning Man encourage Chinese travelers to come to Nevada continuously.

With the rising population of Millenia travelers, social media has become essential to promoting Nevada.”

-Zhenzhen Tan, Public Relations

East-West Group, China

In FY2016, Travel Nevada restructured its China sales and marketing effort, partnering with East West Marketing to promote Nevada to the Chinese FIT (Free Independent Traveler) and MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, Exhibitions) traveler.

France

“France is a high-potential market for Nevada. Cars are their preferred means of discovering a place as unique and beautiful as Nevada. Diversity and authenticity are key: the French love nature, open roads, people, and off-the-beaten track experiences.”

-Morgane Vincent, Account Manager

Germany, Switzerland, Austria

“Nevada is full of exciting contrasts: the rugged northwest offers an authentic cowboy experience, the west showcases the largest mountain lake in the US – Lake Tahoe – and the south offers endless silence in the desert. Lonely streets, ghost towns and wild horses make the state so unique.

-Patrizia Walaschek, PR Manager

Aviareps, Germany

India

“The experiential Indian tourist is most coveted. Every country is clamoring for a share of the Indian outbound pie, a major share of which comprises young, tech-savvy travelers with increasing disposable income. One of the fastest growing outbound tourism markets in the world, Indians account for nearly 25 million trips abroad each year. While on holiday, Indians love to splurge, little wonder then that they spent around US$1.6 bn on outbound travel in Q1 of 2019.

A perfect refuge for the discerning Indian traveler, Nevada has something for everyone. Indians would love to explore the bright lights at Neon Museum and hiking trails at Cathedral Gorge State Park as well as the belly-bursting buffets and hot springs of Spencer.”

Mexican travelers are attracted to the casinos and exclusive shows, but having the nature, culture and non-traditional activities surrounding such main attractions feels really different and makes the experience completely unique.”

To a traveler from the UK, Nevada feels unknown, unexpected, off the beaten track.

Japan

“As many Japanese live in bustling cities, when traveling they prefer to get away from it all, and Nevada offers an openness that is a great contrast to the daily grind.

Nevada’s expansive and beautiful deserts are especially loved by Japanese people, their like of which cannot be found in Japan, and they enjoy taking photos of the raw beauty.

Of course, Japanese people also enjoy visiting Las Vegas for its vibrant casinos, exciting entertainment, and world-class cuisine. Las Vegas is also the gateway to the Grand Circle for Japanese travelers, offering them an ideal combination of an escape to the natural world and a taste of American entertainment.”

Nevada provides a huge range of authentic experiences and is also abundant with not only natural and historic sites but also modern city cultures. Nevada is an undiscovered destination for Koreans in terms of its artistic culture, festivals and outdoor activities. Nevada is definitely a destination that allows Koreans to be inspired and bring home what they have seen and learned to transform their lives.”
