The 15th Annual Joint Military Travel Fairs were conducted and organized by the Morale Welfare and Recreation unit on Guam’s two military bases.  The first travel fair was conducted May 2, 2018, at Andersen Air Force Base.  The second fair was held on May 3, 2018, at the Top O’ the Mar on Nimitz Hill Guam.  Over 760 military personnel and their dependents attended.

“The Marianas was very well represented as a premier family destination only 45 minutes away from Guam.  Our information on diving, casino gambling, resorts, WWII, and culture was very well received by the participants,” said MVA marketing manager Broc Calvo. “We are also working on new marketing efforts to improve the Guam military market for the Marianas.

In partnership this year with PDI and Islander Rent a Car, MVA operated a promotional booth and distributed information about Saipan, Tinian, and Rota at both events.


The road safety books were published by the Commonwealth Law Revision Commission and not the Bureau of Motor Vehicles as erroneously stated in the May 15 press release, “MVA Launches Safety Outreach through Car Rental Companies.”
