“Having attended UNITE Indian Ocean as a supplier in the past, I knew immediately that with the addition of Blue Safari Seychelles to the Travel Promoters portfolio that Unite Indian Ocean is was a ‘must’ for our sales calendar. The fact that the day is highly subscribed and in demand is testimony to the value and productivity that the the show offers. It was good to be back and with the convenient appointment system Unite Marketing & Promotions have added, arranging to meet both existing and new trade partners was seamless All in all a highly productive and positive day, with huge thanks to Debbie and her team.”
