Hon. Kenneth Bryan, Minister for Tourism and Ports will join a delegation of tourism officials and private sector industry partners attending the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) Marketplace taking place in Montego Bay, Jamaica from 20-23 May, 2024.  

Renowned as the Caribbean’s largest and most significant marketing event, CHTA is a pivotal gathering for captains of the travel industry, general managers, thought leaders and government officials. 

On Monday 20 May, Minister Bryan will participate in a public-private sector panel discussion entitled ‘Visioning a New Tourism Landscape for the Caribbean’ which will delve into topics such as multi-destination marketing, Intra-Caribbean travel, air connectivity, new markets and policies aimed at ensuring the resilience and sustainability of Caribbean tourism.

Expressing his support for the event Minister Bryan stated that the CHTA Marketplace and Travel Forum provides a platform for collaboration and innovation and is an opportunity to engage with industry leaders and stakeholders to collectively chart the course for our region’s tourism sector. “I am honoured to be part of this important dialogue and I look forward to contributing to discussions that are pivotal in determining the direction that the regional tourism industry will take moving forward,” he said.

Immediately following the CHTA conference and tradeshow, Minister Bryan, in his capacity as the Chairman of the CTO, will journey to Bermuda to pay a courtesy call on Senator the Honourable Owen Darrell, the Minister of Tourism, Culture, and Sport. “Bermuda has recently returned to the CTO and as part of my commitment to member countries, I am happy to visit Minister Darrell and engage in discussions regarding the growth and success of their tourism industry, as well as conferring on any issues that may be of concern. This visit provides an invaluable opportunity for Minister Darrell and I to exchange insights, collaborate on solutions and strengthen the ties between Bermuda and the CTO,” said Minister Bryan.

Parliamentary Secretary Miss Heather Bodden will assume the responsibilities of the tourism portfolio as acting Minister of Tourism and Ports while Minister Bryan is overseas.
