Trinidad and Tobago concludes tourism mission to Dutch Caribbean

Trinidad and Tobago concludes tourism mission to Dutch Caribbean ( In an effort to increase visitor arrivals to Trinidad and Tobago from the Caribbean, the Tourism Development Company Limited (TDC) has embarked on a tourism mission in the Dutch territories which aims to attract approximately 2,800 regional visitors in the coming months.

The trade mission, which kicked off on December 11, in Curacao, and concluded in Aruba on December 20, seeks to capitalise on new charter services to Trinidad and Tobago and arrest the decline in tourist arrivals from this region.

Major activities undertaken by the TDC two-member delegation included a trade show with members of the Dutch Caribbean travel trade and tour operators, a business forum targeting members of the business sector, sales calls and presentations to travel agencies on Trinidad and Tobago culture, cuisine, convention services and sport tourism facilities.

There will also be meetings with six key media houses in Curacao and Aruba as part of a strategy to speak directly with potential visitors.

Acting Chief Executive Officer of the TDC, Yolande V. Selman, said it is incumbent on the TDC to capitalize on the opportunity presented by the launch of the new charter services to Curacao and Aruba by Estellair, Just Go tours and Amral`s Travel.

“The role of the TDC is to ensure the return leg of these charter services from Curacao and Aruba are filled to capacity. To this end the TDC has partnered with the charter companies and we are acting expeditiously to engage an aggressive program of promotions in preparation for the upcoming Carnival and Easter vacation period,” Selman explained.

“It is expected,” she added, “that the promotions which are already well underway will put us ahead of the game and bear fruit well into 2015.”
