during the 13th Copa Vacations Argentina Convention…
WILLEMSTAD- September 27, 2023 – Recently, Curaçao had the honor of receiving 85 Argentinian travel agents as part of the 13th annual Copa Vacations Argentina convention. It was the first time that such a large group of travel agents from Argentina visited Curaçao. The goal of the 3-day visit was to enable the travel agents to get to know and experience Curaçao, enhancing their ability to promote our destination more effectively to the Argentinian market.
The event program started with a welcome party where the Minister of Economic Development, Mr. Ruisandro Cijntje, gave a welcome speech, inviting the travel agents to enjoy and feel for themselves what Curaçao has to offer. The following day, the travel agents visited different hotels to inspect the amenities offered by each. With the knowledge acquired, the travel agents can better advise their clients on the best accommodation options according to their needs. At the end of the second day, the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) organized a beach party where the travel agents were able to experience various aquatic activities such as sea-doo’s, clear kayak’s, water bikes and other activities. On the last day, the group went on a Willemstad tour by trolley train and electric scooters to learn about Curaçao’s culture and history. To conclude the program, the travel agents enjoyed a boat tour to explore Curaçao from the sea.
The visit to Curaçao was part of a broader program, where upon invitation from the operators Copa Vacations, Delfos Tours, Logan Travel, Siga Turismo, Top Dest, and Tower Travel, the travel agents experienced three different countries, Curaçao, Panama and Aruba.
Argentina is a growing market for Curaçao. CTB is pleased with its collaboration with private sector partners to highlight the rich diversity that Curaçao has to offer.
