The new trade website includes brochures, maps and imagery as well as a dedicated section on how to sell New Caledonia, containing itineraries and a list of wholesalers. Key industry events will also be added once social distancing measures have been relaxed.
The platform includes one level with three modules, each taking approximately 20 minutes to complete. The first module presents general information on New Caledonia, including its geography, history, fauna, flora, climate and more.
The second module focuses on information travellers need before visiting the destination, including currency, entry requirements and cost of living. The third and last module focuses on everyday life and culture in New Caledonia. Additional levels, including new modules, are set to be added throughout 2020 and beyond.
Those who complete the e-learning platform will have the opportunity to win a spot on a famil to New Caledonia.
“We’re excited to launch the new e-learning platform and updated trade website,” said Emilie Hess, director of New Caledonia Tourism in Australia.
“Our agents are our backbone, and we want to ensure they have access to the best, most up-to-date information on New Caledonia so they are well prepared to work with their clients both now and into the future. It’s our hope that these resources are a one-stop-shop for agents, and that the incentive provides a little positivity during these unprecedented times.”
