Travelbiz's Don Shearer and Shane Cullen were at the Visit California's 2019 Dublin Roadshow event which was held at The Odyssey Room at the Alex Hotel, Dublin. Hosted by Visit California, in conjunction with Hertz and Aer Lingus, a large delegation of Californian partners were present. Despite being one of the nicest summer evenings in Dublin, the delegates came out in their droves with a strong uptake on the valuable opportunity to network with key destinations and attractions from this US state. The roadshow even included a Hertz Ford Mustang (conveniently in the Travelbiz colours!).

 

A passionate speech by Anette Kaiser-Rott (Visit California) explained California has so much to offer from mountains to lakes, oceans to desert. You can sunbathe and ski in the same day. With a strong statement advocating road trips through this diverse state, Anette stated, "We believe that buckled in you are most free, we believe in shooting the photo less taken, we believe you haven't seen the big tree till you have driven through one, ...in dessert driving, coastal cruising and mountain motoring, and tomorrow, let's see. We believe every detour is an opportunity and grabbing the wheel is letting go". With the tag line of California, Dream Big, it does make you want to throw a T-shirt and shorts or two in a bag, jet off to the east coast, hop behind the wheel and explore all the state has to offer at your leisure.
