ATLANTA, Georgia – May 19, 2015, In a debut presentation, the Turks and Caicos Islands delivered an impressive ‘wow’ effect with a new 12-minute promotional video which not only stole the show, but was the perfect pitch to Atlanta’s leading Travel Agents.
The Premier’s North American Tourism, Investment & Commerce Sales Blitz, on Monday, took to the road for a second year and once again featured a high caliber contingent of Hotel, Tourism, Aviation, Real Estate and Business professionals who brought an alluring presentation to the city of the world’s busiest airline hub.
The road trip team led by Hon. Dr. Rufus Ewing, Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands and Minister of Tourism, Hon. Porsha Smith had a lot more to show off to the travel agents this year; the country was recently named as having the #1 Island in the World – Providenciales – in the Trip Advisor© Traveller’s Choice Awards.
“You many know Turks and Caicos for a beautiful set of islands that are known for great beaches, are known for high end luxury resorts and I am sure most of you who have visited Turks and Caicos before could attest to that; that we present world class resorts and that is why we were voted as the Number #1 Island destination in the world; the most beautiful island in the world,” said Premier Rufus Ewing as he welcomed the dozens of agents.
The City Club of Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia proved the ideal venue to roll out the production, which intentionally took the viewers beyond the sands and surf to the rich historic culture, adventure opportunities, unique island traditions, fine festivals, delicious culinary experiences and diversity of island escapes which the archipelago offers.
With a city that is home to over 5.5 million people and a direct link between Providenciales and Atlanta, thanks to Delta, the agents who arrange vacations for these millions explained their clients are always overjoyed at their Turks and Caicos experience.
“One of the things that gave me a great wow factor for my clients is the nature and the beauty and fine dining, people love to eat and people love nature and beauty,” explained Tilda Mosley of Personal Touch Tours Travel Agency in Hay Field, Georgia.
The Premier’s North American Sales Blitz will span six cities in the United States this week and next moves into Houston and Dallas in Texas.
