Following presentations by each destination a lively Q&A was held with important questions about visitor safety, social media, environmental sustainability, airlift, and visitor trends from the U.S. market covered. From bird watching and diving to honeymoon escapes these destinations all offer diverse and compelling reasons to visit this year and as the number of tourists continues to increase to each. Travel agents can expect more demand and an increasing number of suppliers to book with in the future.
