INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL AGENTS ENJOY A WEEKEND ESCAPE IN TCI

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL AGENTS ENJOY A WEEKEND ESCAPE IN TCI

 

PROVIDENCIALES, Turks & Caicos Islands; Tuesday, July 23, 2013 - Twelve (12) international travel agents including representatives from Consultoria e Negócios Turísticos in Brazil and Luxury St. in Moscow were treated to true TCI hospitality when TCHTA hosted its 5th annual TCI Destination Weekend Escape from July 18 - 21, 2013. 

 

Accommodated at Venetian Ridge Villas & Spa, Regent Palms, Ports of Call Resort, The Alexandra, Beach House, Point Grace, Ocean Club Resorts and Villa del Mar, the agents were given firsthand knowledge of what their clients truly experience while vacationing in the TCI through the Association's Weekend Escape initiative. 


Speaking at a Cocktail Reception compliments Blue Haven Resort, TCHTA's Executive Director Stacy Cox said, "Our TCI Destination Weekend Escape programme continues to be a hit with travel agents who sell the destination as they are given the opportunity to visit TCI, as well as stay at and tour some of our amazing hotels courtesy of TCHTA and its members. This then better allows them to promote and sell the destination. Our aim is that through this initiative TCI leaves a long-lasting impression with the agents and reinforces the fact that we have a first class destination for all travellers."

  

Cox also added, "The TCHTA would like to extend special thanks to its members who so willingly sponsored rooms or services in order to make the Weekend Escape possible. This year Hemingway's hosted the agents to lunch and the boat trip to North and Middle Caicos was facilitated by the Tourist Board and Caicos Wheels. I am also pleased to note that through our recent Sales Blitz in Brazil there has been increased interest in the destination with our first Brazil travel agent from Campo Grande participating this year."

 

Weekend Escape 2013 was definitely a resounding success, putting TCI in a good position for the upcoming Winter season and beyond with all participating agents announcing their continued commitment to promoting and selling the destination on their return.
