ITB Berlin – Day 4
Good morning from a wet and cold Berlin today (Saturday). Well, cold by St Helena standards, with temperatures at 9 degrees this morning.
It has been an interesting day so far. It has been the first consumer day and the St Helena stand has been inundated with potential visitors. In the first half of the morning we have seen several hundred people visiting us. Of course we use the word potential as a lot of them are visiting purely as a matter of interest, but the good news is that many are coming.
We met several people this morning who have now booked tickets to St Helena via the Airlink flight and many have taken details and asked for itineraries to be compiled in anticipation of them visiting soon.
Some of our visitors are booked to visit St Helena on Cruise Ships over the next year and were very interested to hear first hand all about St Helena and as part of a promotion, Island Images are giving them a free Island Tour for those cruise visitors who are visiting between today and tomorrow.
We also met with Peter Metz, a contributor to St Helena Travel who had promised to drop by the stand.
In all today has been very busy.
