On April 22nd the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta hosted a Dinner Seminar for 90 travel agents in St. Louis, Missouri.
The main purpose of the event was to promote the new airlift launched jointly by Apple Vacations and Funjet Vacations from this city, which is ready to kick off the Summer Season. This flight is in addition to the regular flights departing from St. Louis that both companies already have in place.
Wholesaler Delta/MLT Vacations was also on the agenda; this company does not have direct flights, however, they widely promote the region via connecting flights.
The event was a complete success. As part of the traditional incentives handed out to agents for their attendance and support, both Apple and Funjet raffled off two free tickets on the new flight along with accommodations in hotels, one in the Riviera Nayarit and the other in Puerto Vallarta.
