Receiving the World Travel Award is a great honor for The Landings.
Miami, Florida (PRWEB) November 06, 2013
The best hotels, chosen by travel agents and consumers worldwide, have been announced by World Travel Awards and The Landings St. Lucia tops the list as St. Lucia’s Leading Hotel. The luxury beachfront resort credits its success in maintaining the AAA four-Diamond rating and earning the World Travel Award to its dedicated team of employees, the hotel and resort community in St. Lucia and their partnership with AskMeInc, a sales and marketing company for hotels and destinations. For the past year, the team at AskMeInc has worked closely with The Landings to strengthen travel agent outreach, engage consumers and to increase awareness in top markets.
“Receiving the World Travel Award is a great honor for The Landings,” stated Hilary Lanzer, managing partner of AskMeInc, “This along with the increase in revenues, profitability and client satisfaction is a solid sign that the work we at AskMeInc have been doing is benefiting our client. Success like this is only possible with a great team at the resort eager to exceed guests’ expectations and excited about working with our off-site sales team.”
The special World Travel Award (WTA) comes exactly one year after The Landings hired AskMeInc to develop a comprehensive sales and marketing program in the United States. In the past twelve months, AskMeInc has secured relationships with luxury tour operators, coordinated week-long sales blitzes in key markets, developed monthly newsletters, organized travel agent familiarization trips, conducted online seminars, and produced their marketing collateral from brochures, sales kits, promotional flyers and tradeshow displays for the resort. “The Landings has always been a great resort,” stated Lanzer, “We just made sure that the appropriate travel agents and high-end consumers knew about this Caribbean gem.”
World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry. Close to 800,000 travel agents and consumers from 171 countries vote in the annual program. For more information and a list of the winners, please visit worldtravelawards.com.
