The Saint Lucia Tourist Board is launching a new month-long campaign in September called ‘My Kind of Saint Lucia’ focusing on five key themes – Luxury Traveller, Foodie Fan, Nature Explorer, Romantic Escapist and Beach Lover.
The aim of the campaign is to highlight the unique and enticing reasons for people with different interests and motivations to visit Saint Lucia, and to help drive early bookings to the island for winter 2014 and summer 2015.

To be in with a chance of winning, agents need to book a minimum of two package holidays to Saint Lucia in September and will need to enter details of the bookings on www.SaintLuciaExpert.com.
The September campaign will also be supported by 24 tour operators and hoteliers, who will be offering fantastic deals to Saint Lucia throughout the month, as well as blogger support, print and online adverts, pay per click advertising and social media.
