“It is very overwhelming. The truth is all of us in the industry work very hard on a daily basis and so many other hoteliers are deserving of this.” – Sunil Chatrani, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of the Barbados-based Elegant Hotels Group, and 2019 Caribbean Hotelier of the Year

“More and more of our customers are telling us that what they are seeking is a personal connection with our people, a genuine experience, and an opportunity to feel that their being here makes a positive difference. Our responsibility is to ensure that our people have the right training, real opportunities for development and a chance to derive the greatest value for themselves and their families from the industry in which they work.” – Patricia Affonso-Dass, President, Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association

“It has been a little while trying to get the Chinese market to be activated. I think that we are now at a point where we can begin to engage air connectivity, which is very important to us.” – Edmund Bartlett, Minister of Tourism, Jamaica (Jamaica Gleaner)

“We have seen the demand and need in the market for a villa product … because people are looking for a bit more space, more privacy, something that is higher end. So (at Waters Edge), you have the space, the privacy and opulence of a luxury villa in a fantastic location in Rodney Bay, right on the Rodney Bay Marina but you also have access to the facilities of Bay Gardens Beach Resort.” – Sanovnik Destang, Executive Director, Bay Gardens Resorts

“To see the way he (Imran Khan) brought on the young players … was brilliant. He has done tremendously as a leader … and I wish him all the best also as Prime Minister. It’s nice to come to Pakistan when you have a former cricketer as your Prime Minister. He is a man of high integrity, we played against each other. A true champion.” – Gus Logie, Assistant  Coach, West Indies women’s cricket team (Samaa Digital)

“To see him (Alzarri Joseph) in tears this morning was even harder, and we came together in the huddle and we just wanted to do it for him and we dedicate this day to him, his mum and his family. It was up to him if he played. I didn’t want to deprive him of the opportunity to take the field. If he felt he could manage and take the field and perform then I wasn’t going to deprive him of that. For sure I knew he wanted to do something special for his mum and credit to him, he held his hand up high and did an exceptional job for us.”
