This marquee event is the replacement for the Cayman Islands Tourism Exchange formerly hosted by the Cayman Islands Tourism Association. The three day showcase involves key business meetings with on island partners and a Department of Tourism led familiarisation trip. Attendees took advantage of the opportunity to sign up for day trips to Cayman Brac and Little Cayman which will provide a rounded destination experience and deepen the product offerings in the Cayman Islands.

The attendees were the first witnesses to an animated fly through of the new Owen Roberts International terminal building at the Tourism Showcase event this morning presented by the Minister of Tourism. Partners in attendance watched in awe as the video showed the $55M expansion from the air, driving along the entrance and walking through the check in, security areas and departure lounge of the of the terminal building.
