Kissimmee, Fla. (Aug. 22, 2018) – For the first time, Experience Kissimmee is hosting the Air Canada Race, an Amazing Race-style competition for 45 of Canada’s top travel agents. This marks the first time the Air Canada Race will take place in North America.

From August 26–30, the travel agents will participate in a variety of Kissimmee-area activities, including a footgolf tournament, zipline courses, scavenger hunts, and visits to area theme parks to learn firsthand about the Central Florida area.   

Experience Kissimmee, the official tourism authority for Osceola County, Fla. works directly with international travel agents to encourage destination visitation. The partnership with Air Canada offers an opportunity to market Osceola County as a top travel destination for Canadians.

“International visitors continue to be extremely valuable to Kissimmee,” said DT Minich, Experience Kissimmee President and CEO. “In 2017, Canadian travelers spent $110 billion in the U.S., an economic contribution that is expected to increase in 2018. Travel agents directly influence visitation, so we’re excited to showcase the best of sunny Kissimmee.”

During the competition, race participants will have a chance to win one of five amazing prizes, all of which include flights, accommodations in Kissimmee, and theme park tickets.
