Travel Agent Appreciation

Caribbean in the spotlight


The Caribbean Tourism Organization thanked Toronto-area travel agents for their support recently and used a setting that offers reminders of Caribbean locales.

The CTO hosted the event at Ripley’s Aquarium, with the CTO’s Jonson JohnRose telling the gathering that “the Caribbean is water as well.”

JohnRose added the CTO hoped the event – which enabled the agents to see tropical marine life exhibits – will “drive people to the Caribbean.”
