Saint-Martin Tourism Office At the Travel and Cruise Show in Guadeloupe

The third edition of the "Travel and Cruise Show" was held from November 27th to 29th, 2015, at the World Trade Center of Guadeloupe.

With fifty stands, the event attracts about 8,000 persons, professionals and potential tourists. It has become in a short time, a major event of the Tourism industry in the Caribbean.

Once more, many socio-professionals shared the Saint-Martin Tourism Office’s stand :
- The Beach represented by Josiane Davoren and Thibaut Nottet
- The Mercure Saint-Martin Spa & Marina represented by Isabelle Beyrat and Rudy Issorat
- Luxuria Travel represented by Laurie Brumier were present

Several prizes were given out during the three-day exhibition, with the grand prize of a weekend villa for 6 persons courtesy of Luxuria Travel.

Eager to renew contacts and strengthen the presence of St. Martin in the regional market Jeanne Rogers-Vanterpool, President of the Saint-Martin Tourism Office met the Guadeloupean press accompanied by Ramona Connor, 2nd Vice President of the Collectivité of St. Martin, Wendell Cocks, 3rd Vice President of the Collectivité of St. Martin and Alain Gros Desormeaux, Territorial Counselor who was in Guadeloupe for another mission but joined the delegation.

During a work meeting between Jeanne Rogers-Vanterpool, Dumel Gregory, local and regional market manager and Malaïka Maxwell, local and regional press and communication and Penchard Voyages, the President of Penchard Voyages Jean-Marie Penchard confirmed that : « Saint-Martin remains a popular destination for Guadeloupeans despite the strong competition from the Cruise industry. It is impossible to create packages during school holiday periods without proposing Saint-Martin ! ». Shopping, "night life" and gastronomy are without a doubt still the main attractions of the destination, closely followed by events (end of year celebrations, carnivals ...) or the simple need to change your daily routine for a few days.

"The results of this travel show are positive and encouraging. The attendance on the Saint-Martin stand were good and the professionals were satisfied with their meetings. The Tourism Office will therefore continue its promotional actions on Guadeloupe by organizing workshops and communication campaigns targeting travel agencies and a Fam trip to St. Martin. " said Grégoire Dumel

The Saint-Martin Tourism Office suggests that the merchants of the French side target this market even more with commercial deals and sales especially during school holiday periods.
