Press Release 5/12/13

We are pleased to announce that local marketing company Pandanus Consulting Ltd will be producing the 2014 Port Vila and Efate Maps. Full details on this map will be released by Pandanus to members within the next week. Work on this map has been underway for some time but business owners Jackie Potgieter and Nicky Barnes have focused on launching the recent tourism Voucher concept first. With the recent announcement of Jason’s receivership, they will be expediting their map project.

Operating locally since 2010, Pandanus Consulting has provided marketing solutions and graphic design to a number of VTO/VHRA members, and most recently have released the Hotspots Voucher system. This will be a tourist and resident focused voucher system providing a point of differentiation to Port Vila businesses starting in early 2014.

“In addition we have been working on a unique and improved navigational map for the past few months” says Nicky Barnes of Pandanus “we feel that we have a map that is not only better for the tourist, but is better for local tourist businesses too”. Her business partner Jackie Potgieter adds “with pay monthly plans and advertising for under $1 per day, we are confident that our maps will be well received.”
