Tahiti: Canadian PR Strategy Creates Bucket list Destination
Canadians considered the Islands of Tahiti an “unattainable dream” destination, and visitor arrivals were on the decline.
DCI positioned the Islands of Tahiti on Canadians’ achievable-travel bucket list by increasing consumer awareness and trade distribution of Tahitian two- and three-star level guesthouse accommodations through an earned and paid media and travel trade strategy.
