MVA hosts European dive media tour

(MVA) — Reaching out to diving enthusiasts throughout Europe, the Marianas Visitors Authority recently welcomed representatives of 11 European dive media outlets for a tour of Rota and Saipan.

The familiarization tour was coordinated through MVA’s representative office in Korea, which has branches throughout Europe, as well.

“Although the number of traditional visitors we receive from Europe is very small, divers are a niche market that will travel great distances for a great diving experience. That’s something The Marianas has to offer,” said MVA marketing manager Broc Calvo.  “Thanks to this excellent opportunity captured by our Korea office, European divers will now have the chance to know about and choose the Marianas their next destination.”
