b) to have not only nice but informative pictures for travel agents like rooms, restaurant, beach, pool, children playground etc.
c) we put only informative comments needed for sales - like exact description of the beach or working hours of all inclusive program
d) we always prepare a separate page with short characteristics of the hotel/hotel chain - what is unique in it
e) we write in correct Russian following grammar and punctuation rules e) we try to follow your corporate style in the presentation
h) we prepare the presentation in different formats ready-to-show (not in ppt), we like PDF which is shown on all the computers.
Good point is that travel agents always ask us to forward them the presentation, that means they like and need it!
