To mark the launch, agents who complete the e-learning platform will have the opportunity to win a spot on a famil to New Caledonia.
The new site includes brochures, maps and imagery for agents 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.
It features videos, images, mini games and quizzes for agents to acquire relevant information to better sell New Caledonia. 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 focuses on information travellers need, including currency, entry requirements and cost of living. The third module focuses on everyday life and culture in New Caledonia. Additional levels, including new modules, are set to be added.
A badge and score system add a light-hearted sense of competition for agents. Those who rank highly in the badge and score system will go in the draw to win a spot on a famil to New Caledonia, which includes flights provided by Aircalin. The famil will take place once travel restrictions have been lifted.
Sally Pepermans, director of New Caledonia Tourism in New Zealand says agents are the destination’s backbone. ‘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 the incentive provides a little positivity during these unprecedented times.’
