The Caribbean’s leading tourism conference is coming to The Bahamas this fall.
The Caribbean Tourism Organization’s State of the Industry Conference, or SOTIC, is set for Atlantis, Paradise Island from Oct. 2-5.
“Globally, the tourism industry is constantly evolving,” said Hugh Riley, secretary general and CEO of CTO. “At the Caribbean Tourism Organization, we must be in the forefront of anticipating and managing the changes that affect our region – extreme climate phenomena, political and economic realities at home and abroad, and the rapid rise in technological developments.”
This year’s conference will be held under the theme “Rejuvenate, Recreate, Reconnect – New Directions for Caribbean Tourism.”
“In order to continue to grow our tourism in a way that is sustainable and beneficial to our communities, we must be open to new thinking, which often means breaking out of traditional comfort zones,” Riley said. “SOTIC 2018 is intended to inspire action to develop innovative concepts, tools and models, and implement strategies that recognize the changing demands of international travelers. Exceeding the expectations of increasingly knowledgeable consumers is a challenge the Caribbean must always be prepared to meet.”
