At check in, each attendee will be given HALF of an image from Martinique Promotion Bureau. It’s your mission to complete the image by finding its other half in the hands of another event attendee. Once you’ve met your match, follow the contest rules to be entered in a drawing to win anything from a Martinique-themed gift bag to a five-night stay on their beautiful island! Both travel advisors and suppliers are eligible to win. We wish you luck!
