During July and August we held a series of webinars on new projects / attractions / developments in the Cancun / Riviera Maya area. The feedback we received was extremely positive and we are so pleased for our staff in Cancun who worked very hard on the presentations and were highly-motivated by the encouraging responses from the attendees of the webinars.
We are now putting the final touches to a similar webinar, this time on the destination of Los Cabos/Baja California Sur. The webinar will follow the same format of around 40-45 minutes presentation to be followed by a question/answer session. Again we intend to present the webinar on several different occasions in order to give as many of our clients the opportunity to participate as possible. So if this destination interests you at all, please keep a lookout for our information concerning dates and registration. We hope to be presenting this webinar during September and October.
In our last Newsletter we presented the idea of personalised individual incentive programmes as a possible way forward during the pandemic…and indeed even after, as obviously the effects of the pandemic will be far-reaching for quite some time… as opposed to the large group movements we have been so accustomed to over the years. Our idea is simply to consider the individual traveller, or even those who wish to travel in small groups within the restrictions we are likely to see for some time yet. We also mentioned in particular those who are ‘winners' and who under normal circumstances would be recognised in some kind of formal presentation during a group programme. We feel they should not be penalised simply because group programmes have been suspended for the foreseeable future.
The pandemic continues to wreak havoc with our travel industry business worldwide and still there seems to be no end in sight. We are all having to find alternative solutions to the dilemma we find ourselves in and hoping and praying we can survive until a vaccine or some kind of cure can be found. However some suppliers have taken a different approach and are using their services and premises for the benefit of others who are less fortunate. We received this news article the other day and all of us were extremely touched by what this hotel is doing for the local population of schoolchildren. We decided to include it in our Newsletter as an example of what can and should be done when we consider others more than just ourselves. We sincerely hope the article will give us all something to think about…..!
