The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) goes mobile with the launch of an app for Caribbean Week in New York.
The application makes it easy for mobile users to locate and access Caribbean Week activities, as well as share photos and videos of, and comments on, the event. It was developed by Cititech Solutions, a New York-based technology company which specializes in providing technological support for small, medium-sized and large businesses. Cititech Solutions is an Allied Member of the CTO.
“People are not sitting at their computers anymore so this app makes it possible for the CTO and its members to reach a much wider audience,” said Carol Ababio, Cititech Solutions’ chief operating officer, in a written release.
The app can be downloaded from the Google Play, the Apple store or by scanning the QR bar code using the bar code reader on your phone. There’s also a link to Google Play on www.onecaribbean.org.
Caribbean Week in New York runs from June 1-8 with a series of consumer and industry related events, including the fascinating Students’ Colloquium at which Caribbean students studying at the tertiary level present sustainable tourism projects that are practical and can provide a sustainable source of income for Caribbean nationals; the Caribbean Diaspora Forum, developed in collaboration with the Caribbean American Chamber of Commerce and Industry; Caribbean Media Marketplace where CTO member governments and private sector exhibitors interact with leading journalists from trade and consumer press; the Media Awards Luncheon where the organization honours journalists for their award winning features on the Caribbean and more.
