using social media to promote travel destinations
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 09, 2012
Keynote speaker, Patrick Schwerdtfeger, announced today that he will present his signature program entitled “Social Media Victories” at the Cayman Island Tourism Exchange (CITE) on May 1, 2012. The annual event is held on Grand Cayman, the largest island, and attracts leading tourism suppliers and travel wholesalers from around the world.
Part of this year’s CITE forum will focus on social media and how tourism professionals can use it to promote destinations like the Cayman Islands. Patrick Schwerdtfeger will present his Social Media Victories session in the morning and Murray Izenwasser from Biztegra will present a more tactical social media workshop during the afternoon.
The Cayman Islands are a favorite destination in the western Caribbean Sea. Grand Cayman is the largest of the three Cayman Islands. “Not only is Grand Cayman a beautiful island destination but it also strives to cultivate a world-class tourism infrastructure,” explains Schwerdtfeger, “and I am thrilled to contribute to that objective.”
The Cayman Islands Tourism Exchange (CITE) is the only annual forum for leading suppliers of the Cayman Islands tourism industry to meet with travel wholesalers from the US, UK, Europe and Canada in a professionally organized business exchange. The event is organized by the Cayman Islands Tourism Association (CITA).
CITE allows the Cayman Islands tourism bodies to educate our wholesalers and international media about the tourism product in the Cayman Islands so that they are equipped to successfully sell or promote the Cayman Islands to their customers.
