With participation of 160 travel agents
WILLEMSTAD- October 17, 2023 – Recently, the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) and KLM Germany organized a roadshow in 4 cities in the northern part of Germany. The goal of the roadshow was to raise awareness about what Curaçao has to offer as a tourist destination. A total of 160 travel agents participated in the roadshow, spread across the cities of Düsseldorf, Bremen, Hamburg, and Berlin.
CTB and KLM Germany, with 6 local and German partners worked together to execute the roadshow. Upon arrival, the travel agents were welcomed with a welcome drink and some snacks, and were then invited to participate in 8 informative presentations. Each partner presented their products and answered questions from the travel agents. The highlight of the evening program was when the travel agents had the opportunity to work on an artistic painting on canvas with the theme ‘Curaçao’. This certainly resulted in a joyful, artistic, and memorable activity. Among other things, the travel agents painted our famous Handelskade, our underwater life, cocktail glasses, and much more. In the city of Berlin, the travel agents painted Chichi, symbolizing the connection with Curaçao, since Berlin is the hometown of local artist Serena Israel. At the end, each set of 15 paintings was combined to form a large artwork which was then gifted to a travel agent who placed this colorful art as decoration in their store. The painting activity was guided by Götz Friedewald, a professional German artist.
CTB is grateful to the partners who participated in the roadshow, which are: Inclusive Collection – World of Hyatt, Kontiki Beach Resort Curaçao, Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort, LionsDive Beach Resort Curaçao, Sandals Royal Curaçao, and DER Touristik.
