As worldwide vaccination rates are on the rise and consumer interest and confidence are increasing, the Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) will welcome nearly 50 travel trade partners from Korea in early November as one of the first steps toward market recovery.

The four-day familiarization (fam) tour will introduce the travel trade group to updated safety protocols and facilities around the island to gain a better understanding of how Guam has adapted to keep locals and visitors safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are very excited to welcome our travel trade to Guam for this special fam tour on November 8th. This group visit will help wake up our tourism industry which hasn’t had much activity since the pandemic began,” said GVB President & CEO Carl T.C. Gutierrez. “We are confident in our island’s capabilities to provide a safe and desirable destination to incoming travelers.”
