These include partnering with National Geographic to produce a number of digital nomad reports by Andrew Evans. These road trip reports, which will showcase five different journeys across the USA – will all be streamed digitally on Brand USA‘s DiscoverAmerica.com website. The first report, which will feature the iconic Route 66, will be available later this year.

Brand USA has also commissioned IMAX films to make a wide 70mm format film covering some of the most stunning photo images of the United States.
