The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) will hold its Conference on Sustainable Tourism Development on the beautiful island of Grenada from April 22-24, 2024. This was announced by Grenada’s Minister of Tourism Lennox Andrews via a video recording during the wrap-up of the press conference held after the CTO’s State of the Tourism Conference (SOTIC) recently hosted by Turks and Caicos Islands.
“We are honored to host the CTO’s Sustainable Tourism Conference in 2024. Grenada’s commitment to sustainable and inclusive tourism aligns perfectly with the conference’s objectives,” said Minister Andrews in a press statement. “We are dedicated to showcasing the transformative power of sustainable tourism and its role as a push for social and economic growth and environmental stewardship throughout the Caribbean.”
Grenada to Welcome Industry Leaders
During the address, Minister Andrews thanked the tourism organization for selecting Grenada to host the event, which will increase awareness of its vision with regard to sustainable tourism and play a key role in disseminating important information. He added that, together with his tourism colleagues, he was honored to welcome the participants to the conference discussions and to enjoy the warm hospitality of the “Spice Island.”
The last time the Caribbean Conference on Sustainable Tourism Development was held was in 2019 in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
“We are excited about presenting the Caribbean Conference on Sustainable Tourism Development in Grenada next April. This conference underscores the CTO’s commitment to advancing sustainable tourism policies and practices in the Caribbean. Grenada’s natural beauty and dedication to sustainable tourism make it an ideal host, and we look forward to engaging in fruitful discussions with our colleagues in the industry,” said CTO Chairman Kenneth Bryan in a press statement.
The conference will revolve around how the member states can create and implement sustainable tourism programs and policies, creating a regional forum for information exchange on the successes and frustrations of initiatives, whether national, regional or international. The conference, under the theme “Planet vs. Plastics,” will open on April 22, 2024—Earth Day.
