WTM and FCCA review

Post by hackshaw »

Hello all,

I attended both the FCCA conference in Grand Cayman and the WTM in London last month. I thought both were very much worth my while.
The FCCA caters mainly to the cruise ship industry in the Caribbean, and it is an excellent way to meet key people in the various sectors, from shore excursions to purchasing. It was very well attended and allowed everyone to mingle with decision makers. It also had excellent conferences which dealt with different topics. I attended the shore excursions ones and gathered a wealth of knowledge as to what is wanted, needed and required. The panel consisted of key people from a number of cruise lines. Anyone wanting to gain more business from the cruise ships really should try attending this event. The next one is going to be held in Mexico next year.
it was also my first time at the WTM in London. This was a real eye opener for me as I saw the extent of our competition world wide. The choice clients have to choose from really shows that ones product has to be at its very best and then some! As it was my first year did not have a many meetings set up as I could of and I feel I will be better organized next time. The overall interest in our St. Lucia booth was encouraging and most people wanted more info on our tours. Again anyone wanting to increase sales should showcase their products at this event.
