Caribbean Roadshow a Big Hit with Agents

The Caribbean Tourism Organization visited Belfast for the first time last week on their first stop on the CTO Roadshow.

The Belfast roadshow was organised by TravelMedia and the Northern Ireland Travel News events team.

Twelve suppliers including tourist boards, hoteliers and airlines, travelled to the Ten Square Hotel, Belfast, to meet with more than 50 local agents, keen to learn about upcoming incentives.

Suppliers on the evening included the Bahamas Tourist Office, Grenada Tourism Authority, Barbados Tourism, Sandals Resorts and Virgin Atlantic.

There was a fantastic turn-out from the local agencies who came from all over the city and places like Lisburn and Lurgan to meet with the suppliers. Attendees were treated to a drinks reception followed by a delicious Caribbean-themed buffet of jerk chicken and coconut beef curry.

The amazing food wasn’t the only thing up for grabs on the evening as the agents were also treated to superb prizes, thanks to the very generous suppliers.

These included goodie bags galore, bottles of rum and champagne, places on FAM trips with the Tobago Division of Tourism and Sandals Resorts and pairs of tickets to any Caribbean destination with both Virgin Atlantic and British Airways. To say the winners were delighted would be an understatement!

Said a spokesperson for the CTO: "All in all, it was a very successful, beneficial and enjoyable evening for both agents and suppliers alike. The Caribbean Tourism Organization would like to thank all of the local agents for their support and look forward to returning to Belfast in the future."
