About OECS/TASC Caribbean Virtual Expo

The Caribbean’s tourism industry continues to blaze a path forward, even during unprecedented times. Travel Advisors Selling the Caribbean (TASC) and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), two organizations that focus on the development of the Caribbean, will collaborate to host the Caribbean Virtual Travel Expo on June 17th, 2021 | 8 AM - 8 PM EST under the theme “From Survival to Sustainability – Charting the Future Course of Caribbean Tourism.

The Expo will be part of the OECS 2021 Sustainable Development Movement Agenda. It will feature discussions on rebuilding visitor safety, confidence and satisfaction, the protection of resources and the maximization of benefits to the region, through sustainable local economic activity.

In keeping with its mission as the industry facilitator, TASTC will present a one-day program packed with education and networking opportunities to help rebuild Caribbean tourism. The event will focus on effective strategies to get visitors excited about returning to the region, during this period of continued uncertainty.

The virtual conference will attract qualified travel advisors, travel enthusiasts, suppliers, travel media and influencers. It will provide them with valuable tools, techniques, information, and innovation, in an ever-competitive marketplace. Attendees will take a virtual deep dive into everything that the Caribbean has to offer, through a diverse program of activities that will provide tools, tips, tricks, and techniques, thereby paving the way to a sustainable path of growth and success.

After a year of upheaval, it is time to expand and strengthen the connections that will lead to resilience, differentiation, and growth in the tourism industry. Join us at the Virtual Caribbean Travel Expo for a chance to step away from your day-to-day challenges and fully immerse yourself in educational and networking activities. You will gain insights into the latest trends, technologies and ideas that will help reboot your business and set you on a course of growth and success.

The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honor of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has eleven members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Martinique, and Guadeloupe.
