We enjoyed a VERY successful series of events and meetings with some of our favorite travel wholesalers and travel agents in Southern California. It was fantastic meeting with old friends and new colleagues, and discussing the Cook Islands, Fiji and Samoa.  The first day of the Long Beach Adventure Travel Show was also a great success, as there were many attendees showing lots of enthusiasm for travel to the islands of the South Pacific.

I have just returned from an exhausting but incredibly successful two weeks in Europe. The South Pacific Tourism Organization sponsored a roadshow throughout Europe, visiting the amazing cities of Paris, Munich, Hamburg, Amsterdam and Berlin.  Several hundred travel agents in these cities attended our South Pacific presentation, where I was honored to present Royale Takitumu, Palm Grove, Crusoe’s Retreat, and Coconuts Beach Club.  It was so nice seeing all of these agents come out to learn about our South Pacific paradise.  These European cities are beautiful, and these agents are very fortunate to live in such gorgeous cities – however, we were very proud to present the stunning islands of the South Pacific, which really did take their breath away.  After the Roadshow, I was lucky to spend one day at ITB in Berlin – the world’s largest travel show, with over 10,000 different exhibitors in attendance. While it was a long and very…
