Caribbean Week in Canada 2017 will come alive in Toronto, Nov. 10-14 and Montreal, Nov. 16-17, when tourism officials, industry executives, media, Caribbean Diaspora, travel agents and consumers join forces to participate in an array of events that highlight Caribbean tourism.
Organized by the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO), Caribbean Week Canada 2017 will combine business sessions and consumer-oriented events with Caribbean-inspired food, entertainment and networking opportunities.
The week will kick off in Toronto on Nov. 10 with CTO’s Caribbean Ball, which is being held in support of CTO’s charities. All proceeds will be donated to the CTO Relief Fund, which assists CTO member countries in the wake of disasters, as well as the CTO Foundation, which provides tourism scholarships.
Focusing on the sights, sounds, colour and culture of the region, Caribbean Week is one of the largest regional tourism activities in Canada. Artists, performers, celebrity chefs, investors and other strategic partners join government officials for a week of activities that showcase the diversity and vibrancy of the region.
“The CTO is very excited to bring Caribbean Week back to Canada this November. It is very important for us to raise awareness to the fact that despite the natural disasters that have been occurring, many of our islands are open for business and the CTO has and will continue to operate and promote the Caribbean, informing partners, consumers and media of the strong restoration efforts underway,” said Sylma Brown, director of the CTO – USA, Inc.
