Making CRUSA Work for You

In addition to our Sales & Marketing Opportunities, there are numerous ways for destinations and attractions in the Capital Region to increase your reach with CRUSA’s international audiences:

Overseas Tourism is Big Business for the USA

Overseas visitors stay longer and spend more money in the Capital Region than visitors from the USA. In 2019, 2.40 million overseas travelers visited the Capital Region, stayed an average of 9.4 nights and spent nearly $5.2 billion on hotels, meals, shopping, attractions, and other goods and services across Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia.

Global Travel Exchange

Capital Region USA's inaugural Global Travel Exchange is an annual marketplace designed to connect the region's travel suppliers, overseas buyers, travel trade media, and receptive operators in face-to-face appointments, regional familiarization tours, and engaging networking events.

CRUSA is seeking proposals for the 2023 GTE.

The destination or property selected to host the GTE has the unique opportunity to showcase their facilities and attractions to as many as 40 targeted international tour operators and US-based receptive tour operators as well as regional, state, and local tourism professionals. Hosting a GTE may result in substantial follow-up business opportunities for the destination/property. The deadline for proposals is 5 p.m., Monday, January 16, 2023. View the RFP.
