The airlines made use of the expo to promote their globe spanning services.

Effective Promotional Tool

Vacation Expo 2006, held from March 16 through 19 at the World Trade Center Curaçao, proved to be a very effective promotional tool. Visitors took the opportunity to interact on a one-on-one basis with exhibitors and got answers to many questions ranging from the best time for traveling to roaming options, comprehensive travel insurance arrangements and effective preventive vaccinations. In addition to satisfying their curiosity attendees also got a taste of several kitchens of the world. A big screen in the center of the food court continuously showed presentations of the show’s exhibitors. The exuberant interest shown by the visitors compelled many exhibitors to already sign up for next year’s event.
