BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS – Travel agents will be exposed to the attributes that make St. Kitts and Nevis one of the most seductive destinations in the Caribbean, through a series of workshops and presentations in the morning and destination study tours and a scavenger hunt in the afternoon.
The October 6 – 9 conference, dubbed “One Caribbean Chapter Sales Experience,” is being organized to help the leading travel agents get a better feel for the destination through a programme of thrilling activities and seminars.
“More than hosting the usual conference with a packed programme of seminars and presentations, we want the travel agents to get to experience the destination so they can better sell it,” said Fernando Abreu, the CTO’s deputy director of marketing at the New York office.
A trade show and networking session with local suppliers – hoteliers, ground operators, attractions, restaurant owners, etc – is also being organized to give the agents the opportunity to interact with the suppliers and get to know what St. Kitts and Nevis has to offer and how the agents can create the best holiday experience for their clients.
The CTO member countries will have an opportunity to present spotlight presentations – a series of seminar sessions in which each participating country makes a 20 minute presentation on their product to a group of travel agents. The focus during these special presentations will be on weddings and adventure.
