Thousands of visitors flocked to the Place Bonaventure in Montreal, intending to plan their vacation or get further information on destinations for future travel. Travel destinations exhibited included Belize, the Caribbean, Cuba, Mexico, Turkey, Japan, Taiwan, and many more. Throughout the day free conferences were available to visitors that offered advice on vacation planning. The showcasing of cultural dances, music, and traditional foods was also presented by different destinations present.
Visitors to the Belize Hotel Association booth were drawn by the array of activities portrayed on our huge banner, as well as BHA Map, that caught their attention. They were amazed by the diversity of attractions Belize has to offer and the countless activities and hotels that suited every budget and every need. Many visitors to ITTS knew of Belize already and were excited to learn more about our country. Several travel agents also stopped by, asking for more information.
The list of contacts will be emailed to our BHA members this week. We ask our membership to reach out to these persons who are looking forward to receiving more information about Belize and your property.
