Built on input from agents, on what training and information was needed to support them to sell Papua New Guinea, the new destination training website, launched by Papua New Guinea Tourism Promotion Authority (PNGTPA) this month, aims to immerse agents in the unique stories of this exciting destination.
We are really hopeful that agents will be sending clients to Papua New Guinea in the not too distant future and we want to ensure they’re well prepared for the opportunity as soon as the time comes,” said Holly Marshall, Trade & Marketing Manager, Papua New Guinea Tourism Promotion Authority Australia and New Zealand. “As the primary source of information to help travel trade learn more about Papua New Guinea and how to sell it, the site is not only more modern and engaging in design but also provides a larger array of tools and resources that are actually needed by the industry.
“Papua New Guinea has so much to offer the traveller, yet is still relatively untouched and unknown despite being right on Australia and New Zealand’s doorstep. We hope the new site encourages more agents to discover everything the destination has to offer.”
Completing the five training modules will take approximately 20 minutes and, as well as practical information and an introduction to the destination, history and culture, agents will also learn about the opportunities for experiences including trekking, diving and surfing adventures.
To celebrate the launch, PNGTPA is offering agents the chance to win one of five $250 visa gift cards. To automatically enter and be in with a chance of winning, agents simply need to complete the five new training modules on the site by 15 December, 2020. The winners will be drawn and contacted directly via email on 16 December, 2020.
