Vanuatu Tourism Office launches new trade micro-site and online training in Australia

Following on from the success of the Australian roadshow at the end of April, Vanuatu Tourism Office (VTO) Australia has launched a practical trade micro-site www.vanuatuspecialists.com.au , designed specifically to educate and inform travel agents about the destination.  The site also features the newly launched online training, powered by “Your Workshops”, where agents who complete the training to become a Vanuatu specialist are given the chance to win a place on a famil trip at the end of the year. In a move to add more colour and character to the usual format of a trade site, the VTO has partnered with passionate Vanuatu advocate, Channel Nine TODAY show presenter, Steven Jacobs featuring some travel experiences and tips from him.
The site also lists some great selling tips and fast facts on Vanuatu, in order to help agents best understand and sell the destination more effectively to their clients.  The site will be regularly updated with details on trade events, famils and expos with an easy registration function.  Agents interested in self-famils will find packages from different properties as well as Air Vanuatu’s $50 agent fare (excluding taxes) departing from Sydney or Brisbane. Note: For members who would like to have their travel agents famil rate displayed on the site please send details, logo and pricing (in AUD preferable) to australia@vanuatu.travel.
