Caribbean Week Returns to New York in June

Tri-state area residents will be able to sample Caribbean cuisine and bask in the vibes of Caribbean music, culture and heritage in the heart of New York City this spring when Caribbean Week 2010 comes from June 6-12.

Organized by the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO), Caribbean Week in New York brings together the most influential policy makers, marketing professionals and tourism industry officials to interact and discuss both tourism and investment opportunities in the region.

Caribbean Week in New York also provides a taste of the Caribbean to inspire travel and showcase the region’s diversity to more than 10,000 attendees who participate in a number of consumer and trade industry events hosted throughout the week.

“We’re excited to bring the Caribbean back to New York City and showcase the regions many attributes, including diverse cultures, beautiful topography, gorgeous beaches, abundance of hotel offerings and more,” said Hugh Riley, secretary general of the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO), in a written statement. “This year’s calendar of events promises to engage consumers, media, the Diaspora, trade professionals, and meeting planners by providing valuable destination information in the form of a media marketplace, an incentive showcase, gala celebrations, seminars and interactive cultural events, many of which are open to the public.”
