“Tourism Month is a time to acknowledge the importance of tourism to our economy, and to celebrate all those working in this industry who contributes to our success as a destination. The educational events also give us an opportunity to address our youth on how tourism touches their lives and the many rewarding career opportunities this industry provides, while the cultural activities expose visitors to a sense of our place.” –
Beverly Nicholson-Doty, Commissioner of Tourism, United States Virgin Islands
“We spend approximately US$12.5 million dollars a year here in Barbados, but all those jobs we create spend a further $25 million and most of that is, of course, taxable revenue to the government. LIAT is worth – outside of its airline activity – well over US$100 million dollars annually to the region in terms of the jobs it creates and the impact that it has on tourism.” – David Evans, CEO, LIAT – The Caribbean Airline
“Today we are celebrating officially the introduction of a tourism investment that will have positive impact for generations to come. Already we have seen so many positive things come from Sandals, from the global marketing, improved airlift services to Grenada, and the caliber of excellence that we are all so very proud of. We have attracted more five-star investment in keeping with our commitment to stimulate growth, with an emphasis on quality over quantity.” – Alexandra Otway-Noel, Minister of Tourism, Grenada
“Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart is a name that has become synonymous with Caribbean tourism globally. Mr. Stewart is an inspiration to all Caribbean entrepreneurs. He embodies the core value of what can be accomplished through vision, leadership and hard work. There is no one more deserving to receive the prestigious ICN (Invest Caribbean Now) Leadership Award in 2014 and we are honored he will be joining us to accept this award.” – Felicia Persaud, ICN Founder and Chairman
“Nothing will put a bad product out of business faster than a good advertising campaign. Advertising causes people to try a product once, but poor quality eliminates any possibility of a repeat purpose.” – Morris Hite, American businessman
“Preconceived notions are the locks on the door to wisdom.” – Merry Browne, writer
“Godly wisdom is anointed common sense.” – A.R. Bernard, Senior Pastor, Christian Cultural Center, Brooklyn, New York
