DC reappoints ANZ rep

Destination DC has reappointed Canuckiwi Ltd as its representative agency in the Australian and New Zealand markets.

Pre-pandemic, the markets produced more than 90,000 visitors per year for Washington, DC, keeping them in the top 10 overseas arrival markets for the nation’s capital. During the pandemic, there have been new attractions, renovations and exhibits that have extended growth in DC’s neighbourhoods and will continue to be the draw card for visitation.

Destination DC is looking to engage with agents ahead of borders opening. Destination DC and Canuckiwi will bring the current Special Agent Academy online training platform to life through a three-module webinar series.
By completing the series, registered agents will become certified as DC Special Agents. Webinars will begin on 4 November and will run to 2 December. Session 1  – Washington, DC Special Agent Academy - Mission Information and Discover the Real DC is on Thursday 4 November at 11amAKL, 9am SYD.

When the All Blacks-USA Eagles game kicked off in Washington, DC last weekend many agents (and their clients) were wishing New Zealanders had the opportunity to be there live.

‘Events like this are always major drivers of travel, but this weekend we’ll need to be content to watch the game from home,’ says Corey Marshall, of Canuckiwi, who represents Destination DC in Australia and New Zealand.

He says nevertheless, the game is sure to inspire future travel to the American capital – which is amongst the world leaders when it comes to having health and safety protocols in place to manage the
‘new normal’.

‘Washington DC has strict Covid protocol guidelines in place – both at its stadiums and in many other establishments across the city.’

To leverage the historic occasion, when the teams play for the 1874 Cup, Destination DC has revealed a three-day itinerary, which highlights what travellers can experience in the city.

The itinerary is packed with attractions and outings from the National Mall and free museums, including the famous Smithsonian institutions, neighbourhood attractions and family friendly activities.

Having dinner at Union Station, taking a city Segway Tour (by day or night), going undercover at the International Spy Museum, or taking in a performance at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage are just some
of the options.
