Few events will help to promote Reunion Island’s adventure destination status more than the annual Mascarun, staged by Reunion Island Tourism (IRT) for participants from the tourism and travel trade in key source markets.
For the Mega Mascarun 2015, more than 200 participants are expected to come to the island and then embark on a journey of discovery across Reunion, covering beaches and mountains, valleys and volcanoes, cuisine and culture, and experiencing the unique blend of French administration with a strong Creole flair.
Spots for next year can be claimed by participating in a quiz which IRT launched last week and which continues to run until the end of the year.
After welcoming France, Belgium, Switzerland, and Germany in 2013, the 2015 edition is also open to South African participants. More than 200 professionals from the global tourism industry will take part in this adventure where experience, wit, quick thinking, and team spirit will be hugely important to come out as a winner.
The teams will compete in a variety of challenges enabling them to assess, in passing, the variety and richness of landscapes and activities that make Reunion Island a unique place in the world.
