Founded 41 years ago in Los Angeles, California, AmericanTours International (ATI) has grown to become the world’s largest Visit USA tour operator, featuring more than 80 escorted motorcoach tour itineraries in more than 10 languages through the U.S. and Canada, self-drive, city packages and over 4,000 FIT hotels and 25,000 direct connectivity hotels, all with instant confirmation. ATI offers easy XML connectivity and customized web booking sites. The company’s leadership team has become two of the most visible and well-known leaders of the tour and travel industry in the United States, with Noel Irwin-Hentschel currently serving on the Brand USA Board of Directors.
The TourOperatorLand.com website by the NAJ Group (it also publishes the INBOUND Report) has introduced both receptive tour operators, U.S. tour operators and international tour operators to travel product and services of U.S. travel suppliers and DMOs. Visitors to the website can use its exclusive Receptive Finder™ to find the right RTO. It is designed to help both the travel trade and travel suppliers find the right U.S. based receptive tour operator to sell their products on the international travel market place.
The receptive operators, who are vetted and qualified by the NAJ Group also take part in at least one of NAJ’s RTO Summits series. The Summits take place annually in Los Angeles, New York City and Orlando. The next Summit takes place October 24-25, 2018 in Orlando. For more information, visit: www.TourOperatorLand.com.
REMINDER: INBOUND will not publish next week, as we will be a part of IPW #50 in Denver, Colorado. We resume publication with the May 30 edition of INBOUND.
