“The launch of the (amphibious wheelchair) service comes as a result of the Tourism Development Company’s continuing efforts to make destination Trinidad and Tobago more accessible to the differently-abled who are fast becoming a significant economic factor for the tourism industry…far beyond its economic possibilities is the knowledge that we are creating an accessible environment where the differently-abled in society can function independently with equity and dignity through the delivery of thoughtfully designed tourism products, services and environments to be equally accessed and enjoyed by all.” – Yolande Selman, Acting Chief Executive Officer, Tourism Development Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited
“I could stand here and give lip service about tourism – and have everyone leave this beautiful venue feeling warm and cozy. But the fact is, it’s time to move beyond the talk, and into serious action. It’s time to get so uncomfortable that we are forced to address the challenges of the most tourism dependent region in the world. It is sink or swim for the Caribbean. And the choice is in our hands.” – Beverly Nicholson-Doty, Chairman, Caribbean Tourism Organization
“Of course the intention is to get a little younger, to attract that younger segment that perhaps we were once missing. It all started with the renovation in 2011 when we decided to give the resort a younger, chic, more modern look.” – Joyce Griffin, Director of Sales and Marketing, Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort (Travel Agent)
“The response to our digital outreach has been exceptionally positive. We are honored to be of service to the Caribbean region for 57 years and are pleased that many of our dedicated customers are celebrating with us. We value you.” – Leesa Parris-Rudder, Director of Commercial and Customer Experience, LIAT
“The team at Comfort Suites Paradise Island is extremely proud of this distinction (TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence), because the honor was generated from our guests. Our staff members receive unparalleled training from the Atlantis resort’s highly regarded hospitality training program, Atlantis University. And, quite simply, they love taking care of everyone who stays with us.” – Earle Bethell, General Manager, Comfort Suites Paradise Island
“No one can be hood-winked as to the reason and the purpose for this kind of discriminatory legislation. Within the region we have an obligation to speak and we cannot allow such inequities to go without our strongest condemnations. It must be a matter of concern to everyone in the region that in the 21st century we should have any country that is seeking to determine the basis of citizenship on ancestry which precedes the year 1929 – almost a century ago.” – P.J. Patterson, former Prime Minister, Jamaica (Caribbean Media Corporation)
“There is no greater impediment to the advancement of knowledge than the ambiguity of words.” – Thomas Reid, Scottish philosopher
