WILLEMSTAD – The Southern Caribbean island of Curaçao has launched its “Curaçao: Escape the Bored-Room” campaign to reward meeting and incentive planners for booking groups with select resorts and destination management companies on the island.
Available to book now through November 30, 2014, for travel through Dec. 31, 2015, the “Curaçao: Escape the Bored-Room” promotional offer includes the following hotel perks for groups of 25 or more:
- Complimentary rooms and island tour for site inspections
- Up to five complimentary room upgrades
- Complimentary room upgrade for planners
- Up to five complimentary VIP welcome amenities
- Gift certificate for three night stay for the meeting planner
As an added perk, the Curaçao Tourist Board is also granting qualified groups a one-hour “Bon Bini” welcome cocktail reception, to be enjoyed at selected host resorts. Additionally, U.S. taxpayers can claim tax deductions for expenses associated with conventions held in Curaçao to the same extent as a convention held in the U.S.
The former Dutch island has a combined 100,000 square feet of meeting space, making Curaçao an emerging powerhouse in MICE travel. These new incentives, combined with the appeal of the island’s diverse landscape and experiential out-of-meeting activities, make it an exceptional destination for group travel.
