NEW YORK, NY (October 26, 2015) – The Martinique Promotion Bureau is making a strong push to attract U.S. travelers this winter by hosting its annual Martinique Magnifique Travel Show in five key markets – New York, Boston, Baltimore, Washington, DC, and Miami – October 22–29, 2015. The special events tout the latest developments in air service, hotel development, cruise options, and attractions.
“With an 800% increase in cruise passenger arrivals since 2010, a nearly 200% jump in available nonstop air seats from the U.S. mainland since last winter, and several new hotel projects, we certainly have a lot of great news to share,” said Muriel Wiltord, Director Americas for the Martinique Promotion Bureau. “Together with a strong delegation of industry partners, who made the trip from Martinique to help us spread all the good news, we look forward to making everyone aware of all that makes Martinique especially affordable, accessible, and magnifique for U.S. travelers this winter.”
