Thus far, the GTA has partnered with local service providers to produce two video experiences. The first video features a hiking excursion set in the lush green Grand Etang Rain Forest with views of the volcanic Crater Lake and the second highlights a destination experience complete with some of the most picturesque spots in Grenada including the world-famous Grand Anse beach.
These videos were premiered via virtual reality technology, to travel agents hosted by American Airlines at Silversands Grenada over the weekend, receiving rave reviews.
Speaking of this new focus, GTA Chief Executive Officer Patricia Maher says, “At a time when global travel is challenged, it is the perfect opportunity to invest in these new technologies in which visitors have a more immersive experience and at the same time feel inspired to visit the destination.”
