On July 20, 2015, the Pro Imagen Associates Caravan, along with our presenter Mr. Mauricio Aymerich, traveled to the United States to kick off our international events. On July 21, our first Educational Seminar for Travel Agents was held in San Francisco, California, at the Westin San Francisco Airport Hotel. We were very proud and happy to welcome over 80 travel agents eager to learn how to sell Costa Rica! We were also joined by important wholesale tour operators from the West Coast and 3 airlines that provided their unwavering support by accompanying us to appointments and agency visits in the morning, as well as inviting their top accounts.

The following day, we traveled to Los Angeles, California, where we held our second event at the Hilton Los Angeles Universal City Hotel. There was great interest from over 130 attending travel agents; the event was oversold. We had the presence of 4 wholesalers: Passport Costa Rica, Apple Vacations, Festival Tours, and Pleasant Holidays. Additionally, 4 airlines supported us: Alaska Airlines, Avianca Airlines, United Airlines, and Copa Airlines.

The successful tour in California concluded at the San Diego Marriott La Joya Hotel with our third and final event. Over 300 travel agents were trained and highly interested in the destination.

We thank the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT), the wholesale companies that accompanied us, the 4 airlines that supported us, and the associates who joined us and participated by sending their promotional material, which was delivered to each travel agent. We wish everyone many successful business deals!

We hope you continue to join us and participate,

The next events will be held in South America, the East Coast (USA), and Mexico.
