WASHINGTON, DC: Brand USA is looking for a PR firm to handle a nearly $600K PR push in Korea to promote America as a premier travel destination with many unique experiences.

The firm will tap into the power of earned media, events and stakeholder communications to promote the range of travel options available in the US.

With budget set at $583K, the destination marketing organization wants a firm “to create and implement approved annual strategic travel trade plan aimed at increasing visitation and visitor spend to the USA,” according to its RFP.

The agency will be responsible for “strategic oversight, planning and execution of all trade activities” in Korea.

It is expected to make direct outreach to tour operators, wholesalers, travel agents, corporate/incentive buyers and airlines.

Brand USA also wants the PR firm staffers to represent it at trade shows and other travel-related events.

The contract will begin Feb. 1 and run for a year with options to renew the agreement.
