The Niagara Tourism and Convention Corporation will host 11 front-line staff members from America Tours based in the Czech Republic on Sunday, April 17.

The staff of America Tours will be given a familiarization tour of Niagara Falls State Park, view the "Legends of Adventure" movie at the Niagara Adventure Theater, meet with representatives of Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours and visit the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls USA. Those participating in the tour are reservation agents and the planned activities will allow them to experience Niagara USA firsthand.

"It is always best to host reservation agents, particularly those working for international tour operators, in Niagara USA so they can actually experience our destination rather than sitting through a sales presentation in their office," said Elizabeth Davis, director of sales for the NTCC. "With their visit, they will be able to better sell our destination as they can speak to their own experiences while here. It will ultimately increase sales of USA itineraries that include Niagara Falls USA."

The tour is a part of a larger East Coast familiarization tour going to Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Binghamton.
