On September 10th, the St. Martin Tourism Office was present at the Salon des Comités d’Entreprises at Hotel la Batelière in Martinique.
It was an opportunity to promote the destination to the two hundred company committees present (with over 400 employees) and convince them to choose Saint-Martin to organize their reward trips.
Capitalizing on his presence on the territory, Gregory Dumel, Head of the local and regional market met with Nayaradou Voyage, AVS, Fléchon Voyages and Foyal Tour, the four largest travel agencies of Martinique. Desk officers and specialized service agents (business and groups) were able to discover the novelties of the destination and the most suitable products for their customers.
The third edition of the Comités d’Entreprises in Guadeloupe held September 17th at the Royal Riviera in Gosier was the opportunity to meet hundreds of company committees who were very interested by our destination. Saint-Martin remains a very attractive destination for Guadeloupe despite the cost of airline tickets.
A series of working sessions allowed Gregory Dumel, Head of the local and regional market to meet the Guadeloupe travel agencies that sell the destination every day; namely Penchard Voyages, Navitour Selectour and Thomas Cook.
"Guadeloupe’s clientele is mostly interested in shopping and night life, but we notice a growing interest for relaxing, visiting tourist sites, water activities and good food. "Gregory Dumel.
