WILLEMSTAD- October 6, 2017 – The KLM and the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) recently organized the KLM Curaçao Roadshow in Germany. The show made stops in Munich, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Berlin, with approximately 160 travel agents in attendance. The aim of these encounters was to create a memorable experience and offer travel agents an opportunity to meet KLM and CTB representatives and discuss sales strategies for the island. The conversations revolved around the island’s hotel portfolio and of course also airlift.
The travel agents who attended were welcomed with a Blue Curaçao cocktail and even could create their own in a Blue Curaçao cocktail workshop. The event included presentations by both the KLM and the CTB. The event was sponsored by Curaçao Airport Partners (CAP) and Curaçao Airport Holding (CAH).
Agents could also participate in a raffle to win a trip for two to Curaçao with KLM, with stay at the Hilton Curaçao or Coral Estate. At the end of the event, they were handed a Curaçao/KLM bag filled with information that will come in handy in their continued efforts to promote Curaçao as a Caribbean tourist destination.
The roadshow partners are Avila Beach Hotel, Acoya Hotel Suites & Villas, Coral Estate, Floris Suite Hotel – Spa & Beach Club, Hilton Curaçao, Kontiki Beach Resort, Lions Dive & Beach Resort, Livingstone Jan Thiel Curaçao, Morena Resort, Papagayo Beach Hotel, Rancho El Sobrino Resort & Restaurant, Renaissance Curaçao Resort & Casino, Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort, Scuba Lodge Boutique Hotel & Ocean Suites and Sunscape Curaçao Resort, Spa & Casino.
