(SLTA SCOOP) – Last week, the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority’s Canadian office held a travel agent familiarization tour headed by SLTA Trade Sales Manager – Canada, Rod Hanna.
The trade partners are all SLEx certified and top Canadian sellers of the destination.
In attendance were Jen Hardy (Nexion Canada), Jane Phillips (Expedia CruiseShipCenters), Joanne Sammut (Cruise Holidays), Ingrid Godman (Ingrid’s Travel), Srini Subbaratnam (Red Tag Canada) and Diana Plihtiak (All In One Travel & Services Ltd).

The group also made stops at several of the Summer of Discovery locations as part of the tour.
About the trip, Jen Hardy of Nexion Canada said, “I’ve most certainly been inspired! You can place the following hashtag next to my name #ivebeeninspired”. Srini Subbaratnam of Red Tag Canada said, “It’s not like any other Caribbean country. It’s not just about the beach there is so much more to do see and eat.”
