sandals ceo adam stewartThe next generation of Caribbean tourism leaders are about to get some inspiration from the CEO of Sandals Resorts International during Caribbean Week New York in June.

Adam Stewart will deliver the motivational speech at the Student Colloquium – a contest among Caribbean tourism students at tertiary institutions, who are challenged to present well-researched, practical and financially viable sustainable tourism projects. 

Stewart is expected to share his experiences in leading the growth and expansion of the global brand since he took over as its chief executive officer at the age of 25. His presentation forms part of the support for Caribbean Week New York by the Sandals Foundation, nonprofit philanthropic organization. The Foundation is also supporting the Diaspora Forum and will make a presentation there.

“The Sandals Foundation is thrilled to take part in Caribbean Week in New York and to specifically sponsor programming such as the Diaspora Forum and Student Colloquium that champion the cause of Caribbean people,” said Stewart, president of the foundation, in a written release. “Since its inception in 2009, the Foundation has maintained a holistic approach toward ensuring sustainable national development in the region, improving the lives of our neighbors with programming aimed at education, community and the environment.  We look forward to coming to New York to share our plans with friends of the Caribbean.”

Caribbean Week New York, which is scheduled to take place from June 1-7, is the largest, most engaging regional tourism activity in the New York area. Produced by the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) in partnership with its members, its primary objective is promoting the Caribbean as a vibrant and exciting travel and business destination.

The Caribbean Diaspora Forum takes place on June 2 from 6 -9 p.m., while the Student Colloquium will be the next day from 2:30-5:30 p.m. Both events will be held at the Hilton Times Square.
