Agoda in association with GAM (Guesthouse Association of Maldives) concludes Agoda’s first workshop at Saman Grand, Hulhumale successfully on 15th September.

A total of 21 guesthouses participated in the workshop from Hulhumale. Guesthouses of Maldives informs that this workshop is the first step of the series of workshops planned to execute nationwide. The objectives of the workshop were to understand the challenges guesthouses are currently facing with regard to online sales and to find out how Agoda and GAM as partners can assist them in continuing their business.


Full youth consultancy training and tactics on how to thrive in competitive environments were discussed in the workshop. Agoda also introduced their new programs Agoda VIP, Market Place, Agoda Pay, Advance Payment Program and Agoda Lite during the workshops.

Guesthouses play an important role in the Maldives tourism industry and the country’s economy. Guesthouse Association of Maldives (GAM) was established in 2014 when a group of establishment owners got together to promote the local tourism industry. They continue to help the guesthouses in the Maldives to develop the industry.
