WILLEMSTAD - The Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) recently organized a “Bin Topa Kòrsou” (Come and Meet Curaçao) event on the destination’s sister island, Aruba. The event, held this year at Paseo Herencia, Palm Beach, consisted of a press conference followed by a well-visited info market. Over the course of two days, the Aruban press and community got to know all about Curaçao’s activities calendar, accommodation offerings, and scheduled flights from Aruba to Curaçao.
As in previous years, Fundashon Bon Intenshon attended together with the CTB to reveal their line-up for the 2019 edition of the Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival to the Aruban press, in view of the many visitors that hail from Aruba each year for this big event. It was also a great chance to publicize several other musical and sports events scheduled to take place on Curaçao in the next few months, such as the Friends Forever Concert (Amigu pa Semper), Curaçao Invitational Golf Tournament and Jazz Meets Cultures Festival.
During the consumer event, the partners on hand, Trupial Inn Hotel & Casino, Livingstone Jan Thiel Resort, Renaissance Curaçao Resort & Casino, Acoya Curaçao Resort Villas & Spa, Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort Curaçao, Celebrations! and Rumba Tours presented their attractive packages for the coming season. Aruba too was represented, by Aruba Airlines, EZ Air and Maduro Travel. The event included live music, with performances by folkloric ensemble Gordons Dance Group, Dennis Aalse and Johnny Scharbaai, Tony Shearman and Leslie Vos among others. The entertainment section closed with a performance by Buleria.
The event in Aruba was also used as an opportunity to reveal a “Feel it for Yourself” billboard, inviting the Aruban people to come and experience Curaçao for themselves.
