Trinidad and Tobago may be most famous for its annual Carnival next month but its tourist board wants credit for promoting its many other amenities too.
Tourism Trinidad says Trinidad has many state-of-the-art meeting facilities and exhibition spaces to accommodate a wide range of events, meeting international standards for a seamless experience for meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions (MICE) travellers.
An official statement said MICE continues to bolster economy and enhance the destination appeal of Port of Spain.
Tourism Trinidad is proud of its record of making Trinidad a premier destination in the English-speaking Caribbean for small to medium conferences.
It has provided support to more many local conferences, including the Association of Caribbean Commissioners of Police AGM, the Commonwealth Chemistry Congress, the Caribbean Shipping Association AGM and the Caribbean Banking Association, noting that the banking association conference brought in over 1,200 participants.
Trinidad Tourism’s CEO, Carla Cupid, said: “MICE tourism as part of our overall tourism strategy is a step toward a more sustainable and resilient industry. We are confident that this will not only boost our economy but also elevate Trinidad’s reputation as a world-class destination.”
