Go Go - travel agents' recent visit a fantastic success
As the season progresses, the US market continues to show an increase in arrivals. As the demand for vacations to Antigua & Barbuda continues to grow, twenty ‘Go Go’ agents recently visited Antigua for a four night familiarization trip.
For the majority of the agents, this was their first visit to our twin island state. They are seeing an increase in demand for visits to Antigua & Barbuda especially with the inception of non-stop flights from JKF on American Airlines.
The agents spent their trip visiting the majority of the properties within the ‘Go Go’ programme, local attractions such as Shirley Heights; they enjoyed local cuisine, music, nightly entertainment and introduced themselves in A&B's unique culture.
The agents were hosted by the St. James Club — one of the premier Resorts in Antigua & Barbuda. The first stop on their itinerary was the Rex Halcyon Cove, where they were met by General Manager, Mr. Richard Michelin who expressed a warm welcome to the agents. The Rex Halcyon Cove is one of the oldest properties on the island.
