From June 7th to 9th, the French Saint-Martin Tourist Office participated to the first edition of the new show "Destination Caribbean" directed to the general public at the Galleria Mall in Fort-de-France, Martinique. Also in attendance were Sonesta Maho and Great Bay hotels represented by Mr. Bernard Hunt.
Organized in the largest and busiest mall in Martinique the show had a significant impact and a wide audience interested in spending the summer in Saint-Martin came to take information on the island.
4 destinations in the Caribbean also participated to this show:
- and Antigua
During these three days of exhibition, along with the contacts established the Saint- Martin Tourist Office agreed to help the company “Express des Iles” to organize a charter between Basse-Terre, Guadeloupe and Saint Martin from June 30th to July 1st with on board over 400 visitors who will enjoy the various activities offered by the destination: shopping, nightlife, dining, water sports, etc.
Gregory Dumel, Local and Regional Promotion Manager says: "For a first edition, the show was very interesting. In partnership with Martinique travel agencies such as AVS, Foyal Tour, Nayaradou travel Fléchon-Selectour we were able to offer weekly or 3 days/ 2 nights packages. We also took the opportunity to introduce new watersports activities proposed in Saint-Martin but also remind the assets all the charm of our island.”
