Throughout the games visitors to Saint Katharine Dock, a popular tourist site, lined with restaurants, were able to get a taste of the rich cultural heritage of the South Pacific. Two special events were held on the pontoon during the games. One was for press and media and the other for the travel industry. The Vanuatu athletes visited for both of these occasions and were a hit with the crowd. Our athletes were interviewed by a number of radio and television stations and travel trade magazines.
Brochures were distributed and special holiday prizes were offered during the duration of this event. The Vanuatu Tourism Representative in Europe, Jeanette Baude helped to co-ordinate this event.
