BASSETERRE (10TH October, 2016): A delegation of tourism officials and partners from both St. Kitts and Nevis, led by the Minister of Tourism The Hon. Lindsay Grant, left the Federation on Saturday to participate in a major promotional drive in the UK.
This will be the fourth straight year for Destination St. Kitts & Nevis Roadshow in the UK, which showcases the unique attractions of the destination, to ultimately grow the UK market.
Minister Grant said he was pleased to lead such a delegation, which also includes hotel partners and destination management companies.
“Destination St. Kitts and Nevis is the ideal platform to build on our existing relationships with the UK trade, secure new partnerships and develop new business,” Minister Grant said. “We are going to get the word out that St. Kitts-Nevis is going through an exciting transformation in our product development, and we are confident that this UK market visit will drive more visitors to our islands.”
The week-long initiative, from Sunday 9th to Friday 14th October, 2016, will span London and the upmarket counties of Surrey and Chester; where tourism authority officials and their partners will network and conduct business with key members of the travel industry and the UK media.
Following the UK meetings, tour and travel agents will visit the Federation with the aim to familiarize themselves with the Federation’s tourism product.
