Reunion island went to meet tourism professionals in Nagpur for the Global Panorama Showcase and in Puducherry for the Destinations Forum.

Global Panorama Showcase

The Global Panorama Showcase (GPS) took place in Nagpur from 8th to 10th January 2016. This trade event allowed tourism specialists and travel agents from the region to meet and so introduce Reunion island to them as a destination.
 
The event welcomed nearly 100 exhibitors and more than 500 visitors in three days. For the IRT (Reunion Island Tourist Board), the GPS offered the chance to increase the awareness of the island across the Indian market but also to generate sales. In total, 75 travel agents were educated about the destination and more than 100 conversations were had on site.
 
This reasonably sized trade fair allowed travel agents to take their time in discovering Reunion Island. Honeymoons and golfing holidays, two themes much enquired about, particularly interested the Indian professionals. The video shown on site also allowed Reunion island’s beauty to be showcased.
 
Destinations Forum
 
The first edition of the Destinations Forum took place on 12th January in partnership with the representatives of three French regions present in Tamil Nadu.
The event was held at the Consulate General’s Puducherry residence, a centrally located and beautiful place.
 
The Forum gave opportunities once again to make contact with agencies so as to better understand their needs and to be able to communicate better across the Indian market.
