Put Your Destination On The World Stage
A key channel to reach consumers in overseas markets is through travel trade. Travel trade includes online travel agents, receptive tour operators, wholesalers, and travel agents. Located in the country they are selling to, the travel trade partners have an intimate knowledge of their local travellers’ interests and motivations, and promote tourism experiences and vacations that will appeal to them. Working with the travel trade in a variety of overseas markets helps us navigate changing demographics and economies, and can help your tourism business achieve a “balanced portfolio.”
As part of our work with the travel trade, we create sample itineraries that they can use that best highlight our region. Here are a few examples.
