Meet Puerto Rico’s ‘Check Off your Bucket List’ promotion delivers incentives for planners
The industry is currently moving from a period of assessment to engagement, with Milton Segarra, president and CEO of Meet Puerto Rico, saying they “were hit hard, that is for sure”.
“But we are still standing,” he said. “Right now, according to the Puerto Rico Tourism Company, 72 per cent or 108 out of 149 endorsed hotels, are operating, this means that 82 per cent of endorsed rooms are available and accepting reservations for new bookings.
“We current also currently have 1747 weekly non-stop and direct flights to Puerto Rico from the USA, Caribbean, and International cities. Coupled with attractions updating us on their ability to host guests, a Convention Center that is in such good shape it is being used as the headquarters for government officials and local DMCs being open as well – we are ready to turn your meeting lists and ours, into bucket lists, to be fulfilled in Puerto Rico.”
The ‘Check Off your Bucket List’ promotion, rewards meeting and incentive industry planners for booking groups at select participating hotels and resorts in Puerto Rico. A one-time ‘experience’ from either a culinary, cultural or entertainment option will be provided to a group for any day.
The promotion applies to new leads or groups generated/contract signed by March 31, 2018 with the travel window until December 31, 2019.
For 100-499 room nights, Meet Puerto Rico will contribute US$10 per booked room night; 500-999 room nights – US$15 per booked room night; 1,000+ room nights – US$20 per booked room night.
“We are not just coming back, we are moving into a new age with the amazing opportunity to try new ideas, new approaches and new commitments to our clients, and we want you to participate in our progress, and share in the anticipation of relaunching and rediscovering Puerto Rico,” said Segarra.
“We want your business. Our hotels, attractions, airport and transportation services are all readying themselves for you, and we are keeping you informed so that you feel confident in booking your next meeting here.”
