About the Forum
Everything you have heard about romance and the Caribbean is true; everything you have heard about the Caribbean being the premier wedding and honeymoon resort destination is most certainly true. However, in an environment where leading marketers in every category find their biggest challenge is reaching the new consumer and increasing sales, how do we get even more of our perfect customers – engaged couples and newlyweds – to wed or honeymoon in the region?
The answer lies in building long-term and meaningful relationships with the people who drive business to the Caribbean – wedding planners and travel agents – the experts say.
How do we do this effectively? Welcome to the Caribbean Romance Forum where those who have done it well will share their expertise and secret, and where suppliers to the market will boast about what is special about their product.
Forum organized by the Caribbean Tourism Organization in collaboration with the Global Bridal Group/ MarryCaribbean.com.
