2014 Tahiti Reception Series

Tahiti Tourisme North America is pleased to announce the successful launch of our newly formatted travel agent training program and receptions. The first reception took place on Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at Westside Tavern in Los Angeles. The new format brought together preferred retail travel advisors who were hand-selected by our participating Tour Operator Partners. The receptions gave this exclusive group of select travel advisors the opportunity to network with the participating Suppliers and receive a revamped destination overview that focused on the five archipelagoes, including activities and products offered throughout the islands.

Detailed information covering target markets beyond honeymoons including diving, family travel, sailing and yachting and Tahiti’s “Hidden Paradise” islands rounded out the overall presentation. The participating Supplier Partners also gave presentations on their respective properties.

The Tahiti receptions continued in California to Walnut Creek on Wednesday, February 12 and Sacramento on Thursday, February 13. In total, with our partners, we successfully trained more than 150 preferred travel advisors about the Islands of Tahiti. Earlier this month the Tahiti Reception Series were held in Long Island, NY on Tuesday, March 4, Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, March 5 and to Boston, MA on Thursday, March 6. Despite the treacherous weather, TTNA and our Partners successfully met with and trained over 150 additional preferred travel advisors on the East Coast. We will continue to hold the Tahiti Receptions throughout the year, exclusively for Partner invited travel agents in the following cities:
