We’re inviting selected resorts and transfer companies based in the Dominican Republic to attend a special event on Thursday morning, April 29!
That week, the Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Specialists Association (DWHSA) – the world’s largest network of romance travel specialists – will meet at the Hilton La Romana (D.R.). Seventy-five travel agency owners and individual agents will attend this conference.
On Thursday morning (April 29), we’ll have a two-hour session called the Dominican Republic Romance Travel Showcase. Resorts and transfer companies operating in the Dominican Republic will have tabletop displays to meet with the attendees who will walk among the tables. Also, we’ll have several 10-minute small-group meeting times where agents may choose to sit near a supplier’s table to learn more about each company.
At this time, we’re inviting ONLY (a) resorts that participated in our recent Zoom training with the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism, (b) resorts that are working with us on the conference directly, and (c) resorts and transfer companies helping us with site inspection tours during the conference.
We’d ask you to arrive at the resort after 8 am to set up your tabletop. You may bring a few items to place on the 6′ draped table, but please don’t bring pop-up displays (everything must sit on the table – nothing on the floor – no electricity available at the tables). You should bring business cards, but we discourage brochures (the agents will not be able to take those home with them in most cases). The two-hour showcase will start at 9.15 am and end at 11.15 am. After the showcase ends, we’ll send you a full list of the attending agents with their contact information so you may follow up with everyone.
Hilton La Romana charges USD$85 for the day pass that will allow you to enter the resort, and we must add $4 to cover credit card processing fees ($89 total). The pass is good from 8 am through lunch. (We encourage you to talk to agents about eating together if you wish.) To thank you for attending this showcase, DWHSA will split the cost of the pass with invited suppliers – DWHSA will pay $45, and you may use the form below to pay $44. (We know marketing budgets are very tight now, so we’re glad to help this way.)
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (U.S.) 615.730.9977 if you have questions. Once you register below, we’ll follow up with you shortly. Thanks – and best wishes for a quickly improving 2021 and beyond!
