We’re delighted to announce a brand new, year long partnership with PROMTUR Panama aimed at raising awareness of the beauty and diversity of the destination to travellers from the US, Canada, Europe, China and LATAM.
The exciting co-op campaign is designed to put Panama high on people’s wish lists for when safe travel resumes and will target Hotelbeds’ high value, hard to access portfolio of 60,000 travel trade buyers – including retail travel agencies, tour operators, airlines and points redemption programmes.
Hotelbeds already has a strong presence in Panama, producing over 100,000 incoming pax into the destination from 80 different source markets, and partnering with more than 130 hotels and activities. We strongly believes that Panama has enormous potential to grow and become one of the top producing destinations within our LATAM portfolio.
The promotion will be focused through Hotelbeds main distribution channels of Bedsonline (our brand targeting retail travel agencies) and Hotelbeds, for wholesale distribution. The campaign will aim to place Panama on the radar of more than 60,000 travel trade buyers.
