The Caribbean will again display its collective holiday attributes to New Yorkers and visitors to the Big Apple, reminding them why the region is a most desirable warm weather destination, as the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) returns for Caribbean Week.
An unmatched program is being planned, offering CTO member countries and private sector partners opportunities to marry and showcase all the appealing and attractive features of the Caribbean in one celebratory event. The program includes the inaugural CAFE @ CTO, the launch of the Caribbean American Fashion Exchange™ at an elegant gala to benefit the CTO Foundation, the regional tourism development agency’s scholarship program. On display will be the works of Caribbean Americans who have made, and continue to make, significant contributions to the fashion and style landscape. CAFE @ CTO will be held on Thursday, June 5.
Another highlight this year is the Caribbean Romance Pavilion – introduced for the first time last year – where couples will have the opportunity to purchase that perfect Caribbean wedding or honeymoon getaway. However, unlike last year when the Romance Pavilion was part of the Caribbean Vacation Mart, this year it will be held as a stand-alone event.
The Caribbean Travel and Cultural Fair and Vacation Mart is also being planned this year and, for the first time ever, is scheduled to be held on a Saturday – June 7, 2014.
