The Caribbean’s leading tourism conference is coming to Grenada next week, with a major focus on recovery and rebuilding in the region in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
The Caribbean Tourism Organization’s State of the Industry Conference, which will be held at the Radisson Grenada, will include a major three-hour session focusing on issues and recommendations for Caribbean rebuilding.
“This is the time when not only do we have to focus on the state of the industry as we know it today, but because of the really strong hurricanes that have affected our region this year we have to focus a great deal of attention as well on our economic recovery as an entire region and how to rebuild with the resilience and structural integrity to protect ourselves in the future,” the CTO’s secretary general Hugh Riley said.
This year’s conference will have a major theme of “supercharging the Caribbean brand: meeting the needs of the new explorers.”
The conference will be held from Oct. 10-13.
