Successful 8 years of representation of the Bahamas in Russia
In 2009, the Bahamas simplified visa regime for the Russian citizens. Since that time Altezza has been promoting the Paradise islands in Russia. We work in two areas: trade marketing and PR.
Our team actively cooperates with travel agencies and tour operators educating them about the benefits of Bahamas and providing guidelines for their interaction with Russian tourists. As such we created such helpful tools as fact-sheets and catalogues about the Bahamas in Russian for the travel agencies and general public. We also conduct regular road shows and FAM trips, organize events, participate in such specialized exhibitions as Luxury Travel Mart and RuDive.
Together with key Russian travel journalists we create a "dream" about the Bahamas Islands. Leading top editions like Vogue, Tatler, Conde Nast Traveller, Narional Geographic etc as well as travel bloggers participate in our press events and press trips. Potential travelers receive information about the Bahamas from various printed stories and broadcasts. Altezza also manages Facebook and Instagram accounts of the Bahamas Islands which Russian toursts find very helpful.
In 2017 we implemented a special project with a popular "Heads and Tails" TV show titled "The Paradise on the Bahamas». Over 50 million Russian speakers watched the show. Additionally we conducted special online contest «The Bahamian Pick» in support of the new Condor flight that was launched to Bahamas in 2017. The reach of the contest was over 2.5 mln. users in social media. The winners of the contest traveled to Bahamas in January 2018. The total number of Russian tourists travelling to the Bahamas has been steadily growing at 15-20% rate annualy within the eight years of cooperation between the Bahamas Tourist Board and Altezza.
