Barbados to Host Next Sustainable Tourism Conference

The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) announced Friday the return of its Caribbean Conference on Sustainable Tourism Development, otherwise known as the Sustainable Tourism Conference (STC), after a one-year absence due to the global economic crisis.

The 11th annual conference (STC-11) will be held from May 9-12 in Bridgetown, Barbados and is being organized in collaboration with the Barbados Ministry of Tourism.

The annual Caribbean Conference on Sustainable Tourism Development is part of the information dissemination and regional awareness component of CTO’s Strategy for Sustainable Tourism. It looks at how member states can design and implement sustainable tourism policies and programs, offering a regional forum for information exchange on the successes and pitfalls of national, regional and international initiatives.
