From May 1 to May 6, Martinique hosted, on the invitation of the Martinique Tourism Authority,  a U.S. tour operators familiarization trip including Caribbean products managers and the CEOs from Travelocity, Orbitz, CheapCaribbean, Hotel Beds, and Spanning the Globe.

The four-day program included visits to three-, four- and five-star hotel (from boutique properties to resorts), a meeting with hoteliers and ground operators under the patronage of Mrs. Roy Camille (recently appointed president of the Martinique Tourism Authority), cultural sites, culinary delights and a quick overview of Martinique diversity, from lush rainforest to white sand beaches.

Participants shared their strong interest in the destination rich offer and largely committed to help increase awareness and sales on the destination.
