Telling Peru’s Story in North America

Peru’s dramatic increase in sales from the North American travel trade is a direct result of DCI’s strategic direction and aggressive marketing in North America. Consumers are increasingly asking for Peru because of the public relations campaign that supports every aspect of our marketing program in North America.

The Challenge

Increase North American visitor arrivals to Peru during an economic downturn, maximizing dispersal of visitors to less traveled regions of the country.

 

The DCI Strategy

Position Peru as a top Latin American destination via influential, third party endorsements and increase sales by wholesalers, tour operators and travels through enhanced education, marketplaces, tradeshow presentations and virtual seminars.
