Saint Lucia launches SLAM – Saint Lucia Agent Months

SAINT LUCIA — The Saint Lucia Tourist Board has launched its annual travel agent incentive program, Saint Lucia Agent Months (SLAM).

Designed to showcase Saint Lucia to visiting travel agents, SLAM runs through Nov. 30, 2015, and includes booking incentives and special rates on accommodations.

During a visit to Saint Lucia, travel agents will experience the island’s tastes, sights and sounds through diverse tours, land and sea excursions and authentic cuisine. They will also be able to explore the island’s award-winning hotels and resorts through planned site inspections.

“Saint Lucia Agent Months are so popular with travel agents because they can plan a visit based on their schedule, see what’s new or new to them and enjoy the island as their clients would,” said Tracey Warner Arnold, deputy director of Tourism for the Saint Lucia Tourist Board. “Travel agents tell us that these visits help them create memorable vacations, honeymoons and even wedding experiences for their clients.”
