TTAL teams up to represent Tobago at TIC
Posted Aug 02, 2023
The Tobago Tourism Agency Limited (TTAL) represented the interests of destination Tobago’s tourism industry as they exhibited at the recently concluded Trade and Investment Convention (TIC), held at the Centre of Excellence in Trinidad from July 20th - 22nd, 2023.
In just 20 years, TIC has facilitated multiple trade deals, hosted thousands of international buyers and exhibitors, and earned a reputation as one of the Caribbean's premier business-to-business events. A team of officials from the Agency, led by Executive Chairman Ms. Alicia Edwards attended the convention with the objectives of forming new business linkages, capitalizing on B2B opportunities, and networking with over 300 international buyers and potential business partners - including delegates of Trade Missions from major international markets.
Tobago’s representation at TIC is a collaborative effort between TTAL and the Tobago Hotel and Tourism Association (THTA), as the island’s stakeholders unite to promote the destination. Ms. Alicia Edwards, Executive Chairman of TTAL stated:
“The Agency’s presence at TIC 2023 was critical to us helping equip Tobago’s tourism stakeholders with the necessary tools, opportunities, and industry linkages to successfully navigate the future of travel and tourism. Collaboration continues to be one of the Agency’s core values that guide our strategic actions, and so we will continue to join hands with both the private and public sectors to establish a cohesive destination identity, and position our unspoilt, untouched, undiscovered island for sustainable success."
Visitors to the island’s “Tobago Beyond” branded exhibition booth had the opportunity to learn more about the destination attractions and activities as well as all they need to know about booking a trip to Tobago – from accommodation to tours – from representatives of the Tobago Hotel and Tourism Association.
