WILLEMSTAD - The Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) recently organized a Sales Blitz in Belgium targeting tour operators and travel agents who sell leisure and luxury travel packages. Over the course of three days, the team met with a total of 15 tour operators and travel agents to raise awareness of the product offered by Curaçao, especially to those for whom the island is a new destination in their portfolio. The travel agents who had already been offering Curaçao as a destination were updated with information that will allow them to better serve their customer base.
The focus was mainly on the more luxurious aspects of the island, such as Jet Center, accommodations and the wide range of activities such as tours available to private groups, including boat tours, diving, museums and other on-island activities. Curaçao was showcased as an ideal destination for weddings, honeymoons and golfing. Interest in Curaçao is already high, and with the new flight schedule which will soon be offered by Air Belgium, the Belgian market interest in the island as a destination can be expected to soar. The CTB’s special thanks go to all its partners who participated in this successful Sales Blitz: Baoase Luxury Resort, Renaissance Wind Creek Curaçao Resort, Sandals Royal Curaçao, ECO Destination Management Services and Pitch Perfect. The CTB will continue to invest in this type of exchange, in its efforts to grow the visitor arrivals to Curaçao.
