Tuesday 11 January 2011   Minister of Tourism and Civil  Aviation  Senator Allen Chastanet leads Saint Lucia's delegation to the  2011  edition of  Caribbean Marketplace which takes place at the new  Montego  Bay Convention Centre in Jamaica from January 16 to 18, 2011.


Senator   Allen Chastanet will assume the helm of the delegation as his ministry continues to emphasize the importance of the sector to the island's   socio-economic development. "Tourism will continue to drive our nation's   economy this year and our strong delegation at the premier travel and   tourism event represents Saint  Lucia's intention to retain and enhance   our worldwide reputation as a first class

destination," he said.


Senator  Chastanet added the team headed for Jamaica would include members of the Saint Lucia Hotel and Tourism Association, "the people whose   properties, attractions, tour companies, and exceptional staff keep Saint Lucia's tourism offerings at  the very top of international   destination polls."


Included   in the Saint Lucia team are Director of Tourism Louis Lewis, Vice   President of Sales and Marketing of the Saint Lucia Tourist Board   Nerdin St. Rose, and experienced North American sales executive Lorine St. Jules.


"We   are very excited to participate in Caribbean Marketplace for yet   another season," said Lewis, who predicted his team will be extremely   busy meeting with tour operators and industry buyers throughout the   trade event.

"Caribbean   Marketplace sets the tone for business in the new year, and we are particularly upbeat given the strong advanced bookings our hotels and   resorts are reporting for the remainder of the winter season," said   Lewis.

Caribbean   Marketplace offers wholesalers and tour operators the opportunity to meet with hoteliers, attractions and destination officials to plan and   prepare packages to accommodate potential vacationers.
