A recent group of Florida travel agents visited Nassau, capital of Bahamas for a Familiarization trip. The group included travel agents from the Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando areas, all of whom had been exposed to The Bahamas product through a Seminar or presentation during the year.
Authentic Bahamian cultural activities, including the Changing of the Guard at Government House and the country’s‘People-to-People Experience,’ were a big hit with the group.
The Familiarization trip served as the Bahamas Tourist Office sales team’s second phase of a Florida Travel Agent Engagement Program.
Bahamas Tourist Office, Florida’s District Manager, Tina Lee, shared that the purpose of the two-pronged program included, “strengthening and deepening relationships with the agents and then exposing them to The Bahamas.”
The group’s accommodations were at the Baha Mar Grand Hyatt, Cable Beach and the Warwick Paradise Island. The Familiarization also included a tour and meals at various hotel resorts in Nassau, Bahamas.
The Bahamas Tourist Office sales team led the group’s visit. Members of the sales team included District Manager, Lee; Sr. Marketing Representatives, Adrian Kemp and Phylia Shivers and Sales Coordinator, Elke Pettiford.
