PNG Tourism launches new trade micro-site and online training

October 15, 2014 Training No Comments Email Email

Papua New Guinea Tourism Promotion Authority (PNG TPA) has today launched a trade website, designed specifically to educate and inform Australian and New Zealand travel agents about the destination.

The site features online training modules, powered by “Your Workshops”, which will help agents become familiar with the key PNG selling points and allow them to become a PNG Wantok specialist.

Participants are given the chance to win a place on a famil trip to Tufi Resort in the Oro province, a destination known for its diving, breath-taking fjord and fascinating culture.

The site will also be regularly updated with details on trade events, famils and expos with an easy registration function. A list of PNG tour operators, news and events and a toolkit featuring downloadable brochures are also available on the site.

PNG TPA’s Australian and New Zealand Representative, Stuart Thompson, said the new trade website is a useful tool to build the confidence of travel agents who previously may have grappled with selling travel to PNG due to a lack of information and understanding.

“PNG is a niche destination with an emerging cruise industry and it’s for this reason we wanted to ensure the top selling points were easily accessible to agents and so when the right sort of client is seeking their next great adventure, PNG is front of mind,” Mr Thompson said.

Agents are encouraged to login and register on the site to receive targeted updates about PNG including information about famils.

All agents who complete the training modules by 10th January 2015, will go into the draw to win a place on a famil, to experience Papua New Guinea first-hand.
