Diana McIntyre-Pyke Receives Global Tourism Award

The Jamaica Tourist Board is congratulating Diana McIntyre-Pyke on her receiving the Global Tourism Award by the Wheatle Peart Global Branding Organization. She is the President/Founder of the Countrystyle Villages as Businesses Programme and President of the International Institute of Peace through Tourism (IIPT) Caribbean and was honored with the award in Chicago on August 22, 2018 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

McIntyre-Pike, in her remarks, emphasized education, training of communities in entrepreneurship and personal development to prepare the succeeding generation for the business world. She is involved with travel business training, business development and marketing.

McIntyre-Pike has been involved in the tourism industry for more than forty years. She, according to the Jamaica Tourist Board, helped rejuvenate communities by assisting funding support.

The company says her vision came from three principles: act locally, establish independence and develop human resources. This work is designed to enable communities to showcase their natural culture, talents and ultimate potential for the world.

The Jamaica Tourist Board was founded in 1955 in Jamaica’s national tourism agency in the capital city of Kingston. There are offices in Montego Bay, Miami, Toronto and London. Representative offices are situated in Berlin, Barcelona, Rome, Amsterdam and Mumbai. The island was ranked by TripAdvisor as the #1 Caribbean Destination and #14 Best Destination in World in 2018.
