A team comprising staff from the Reunion Island Tourism Board (IRT), Air Austral, and the Saint Alexis Resort were in Geneva earlier in the week attending “Vacances – Le Salon de Vacances, Voyages et Loisirs,” which was staged from January 24-26 as Switzerland’s leading consumer tourism fair. More than 25,000 visitors visited the various destination stands to learn more about their personal dream destinations, and the team from Reunion reported great interest from tourism trade visitors as well as from potential tourists.
The IRT used their presence to meet several key Swiss tour operators, including Ad Gentes, Lets Go, FTI Touristik, and Air Marin, another opportunity for IRT this year to promote the destination among tourism professionals and jointly map out activities for the year 2014. The three days in Geneva allowed IRT to strengthen its market presence and increase the visibility of the island of Reunion in the Swiss market.
Reunion’s team will also be present at ITB in Berlin with a full-strength delegation, including home airline Air Austral and a number of key resorts, as a destination but also as part of the Vanilla Islands Organization which will also be in Berlin to showcase the new destination for the first time since the launch at World Travel Market (WTM) last November.
