Benidorm shows its "other side" to 345 British travel agents
Visit Benidorm Foundation participated this week in the fifth annual conference of British tour operator Jet2 Holidays, which was addressed to the main independent agencies of its network of collaborators.
The conference whose slogan chosen for this year has been that of “The Great Meeting”, has had a total of 345 travel agents and has been held at AR Diamante Beach hotel in Calpe.
Beginning last Monday and ending tomorrow, Thursday, four full days of the event will take place in which Visit Benidorm has been able to be very present and publicize its wide tourist offer.
During the morning of Tuesday, the 345 participants witnessed the broad benefits of Benidorm, thanks to a presentation of destination made by Visit Benidorm. Next, the Foundation and the other participating destinations and hotels, among which were the Costa Blanca Board of Trustees, RH Hotels and the Benidorm Palace, among others, had a counter with information that all travel agents went through and were collecting information. The day concluded with a gala dinner and an awards ceremony.
Today Wednesday, Benidorm has had the privilege of receiving more than 70 conference agents. Accompanied by technicians from the Foundation, the agents have made a tourist bus ride, a visit to the Old Town and enjoyed a tapas route in order to savor the rich local cuisine.
The event has had a presentation by the CEO of British tour operator Steve Heapy who and a performance by an English celebrity such as actor and singer Peter Andre.
Undoubtedly, this has been a great opportunity to show the wide and varied tourist offer of Benidorm to a large number of travel agents who work day by day to sell tour packages to Benidorm but who mostly did not know the rest of the products that offers the city, beyond the sun, beach and nightlife.
