[ATLANTA] – Good news for all Americans, mostly people of Caribbean heritage, TASC (Travel Advisors Selling the Caribbean) has drawn out a fun plan to ensure that all who celebrate with them can have a delightful time.
Caribbean American heritage month is a prestigious period that is celebrated in the USA annually in June. The celebrations are ignited by proclamation of the President and Congress. The period is reserved to honor the achievements and contributions of Caribbean immigrants. In addition, their descendants living in the United States, particularly in government, sports, entertainment, and the arts.
Being a beautiful and natural region, Caribbean American heritage month often doubles as an opportunity for the people to showcase the beauty of their land as a possible vacation destination to the rest of America and Caribbean’s in diaspora.
To commemorate the event, TASC has lined up a few activities to keep participants engaged and happy throughout. These activities include:
From June 1 to June 30, select destinations will be featured daily on the TASC Facebook and instagram page. The Spotlighted destination will have an opportunity to take over the TASC page for 24 hrs. Especially to highlight the unique selling points. Plus, provide the travel advisors with content to share on their business pages learn something new and engage their clients. The destinations will be featured in alphabetical orders. “TASC has been great for my Caribbean needs.
I am a seasoned travel professional of almost thirty years and stay on top of changes and updates to continue thriving in this post COVID world. Kelly’s partnerships and online programs have been a great resource for me and has helped me grow my business and confidentially close more sales. I have learned so much from one of her programs. One example was Destination spotlight program she presented on Facebook. After seeing the content and sharing it, I was able to confidentially sell Anguilla from a lead. This is an island I previously knew nothing about! Each of her programs are rich in information and would help a travel advisor, whether new to the industry or long term, such as myself. I am glad for the continued training sessions since so much has changed. Christina Ernst, VIP Travel
