It is that time of year again to shine a bright light on those hard-working and dedicated individuals within the tourism Industry in the Cayman Islands. On Tuesday, October 10th, 2023, the industry will be a buzz to see who will receive the coveted Stingray Tourism Awards this year. The Cayman Islands Tourism Association (CITA) will host its 17th annual Cayman Stingray Tourism Awards event and the main purpose of this initiative is to highlight and appreciate those individuals that have set themselves apart from the rest through their outstanding achievements and stellar service.
President of the CITA Mr. Troy Leacock says “This is the first Stingray Awards event to take place following Covid and the closure of the islands to visitors. Therefore, we feel this is an extremely special awards ceremony that should highlight those that have achieved much since early 2020. Visitors are returning and it is because of the amazing service the hospitality industry provides these guests that they continue to return to our shores.”
The Stingray Tourism Awards allow CITA member businesses to nominate their top performers for the esteemed Employee of the Year awards in the following sectors:
• Allied, Attractions and Transportation (Allied includes retail, services, media, arts and entertainment)
In addition, member businesses will be able to nominate an overall Manager of the Year who has gone above and beyond to provide outstanding service to our guests and lead their team.
Another accolade is the Rising Star Award, which is bestowed on someone who shows promise in the field of tourism. Nominations are open and will be accepted through Friday, September 15th, 2023.
