GREAT BAY – The St. Maarten Hospitality & Trade Association SHTA recently revamped its website www.stmaartenauction.com. The website has received a facelift, contains new features such as the ‘Buy Now’ option and boasts a sleeker more attractive look and a customer friendly interface.
Since its inception the auction site has generated great value for money for its members and the public. It offers a wide range of items such as hotel stays, dinners for two, luxury phones, shopping trips, jewelry, and island activities, at a discounted price. Persons visiting the site can log in and bid on the items which, at the end of the bidding period, will be awarded to the highest bidder.
SHTA initially developed the auction site to drive tourism to the destination by featuring one discounted hotel stay per month in St. Maarten. In 2013, it expanded the website to accommodate many more items. The site offers a great opportunity for SHTA members to promote their products and services and creates great deals for everyone at the same time. August’s features include, amongst others, luxury jewelry and items in the Buy Now category, 3 days /2 night stay at The Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort, 3 Days/2 nights at Oyster Bay Beach Resort and a Lambada boat trip to Prickly Pear for 2 persons.
The auction items are also seen on the St. Maarten Auction Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/stmaartenauction.
“The SHTA is dedicated to bringing quality to all aspects of life on St. Maarten by promoting sustainable economic development for its members in cooperation with the social partners, and the creation of a fair marketplace,” the association said in a press statement.
