San Francisco Travel
Trade & Media Luncheon



  • Delegates from the San Francisco Travel Association and the San Francisco International Airport travelled to Hong Kong to share the news that the city had been chosen to host the 2018 Rugby World Cup Sevens. The delegates also wanted to introduce the latest travel news and itineraries to the Hong Kong media and travel industry practitioners.

  • Eighty20 was engaged to plan and deliver a Hong Kong travel trade and media luncheon to raise awareness of San Francisco as an exciting city to visit in the U.S.A.


You all did a wonderful job on the event, both in the logistics and in the quality of partners and journalists you were able to have in attendance.
Thanks so much for all of your hard work and excellent planning.

All I can say is: You did a fantastic job! From the planning to the execution and follow-up, everything has been just flawless. San Francisco Travel works with a lot of agencies who assist us to organize client&media events all around the globe, and we very rarely get services with such a degree of perfection and detail orientedness as you have provided. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with you.
