Randy Santos, Vice President of ‘Les Clefs d’Or’ in Dubai and spokes person on behalf of Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) at the event said: ‘It is appreciated when companies like Vice Versa have an interest in the tourism segment and acknowledge our work and support what we do. We have always been keen on offering the Vice Versa card to our guests as it is our job to provide the best recommendations and advice, and when we can recommend a product that so directly benefit the visitor, we benefit too!

Mr. Laksa, the lucky Les Clefs d’Or member to go on the Vice Versa sponsored trip to China added: ‘When I give recommendations to my guests I have found that women in particular are keen on the Vice Versa card. They often like to go to the spa and then go shopping. When they realize the fact that  simply by presenting the Vice Versa card they get 20% back on their spa bill as Card-Cash that can be  spend immediately on more shopping, they are very excited. I will be bringing the Vice Versa Welcome Packages to China to share the experience with my colleagues, as I believe it is still truly unique for a destination like Dubai to offer such a reward card for Visitors.’
