World Travel Awards (WTA) has revealed that the paradise island of Saint Lucia will host its Caribbean & The Americas Gala Ceremony 2023. The leading travel industry figureheads from across the region will attend the red-carpet reception on 26 August 2023.

The VIP evening will take place at Sandals Grande St. Lucian and form the climax of World Travel Week 2023, a week-long celebration of the global travel and tourism sector, featuring a series of events to unite the industry’s thought-leaders and spark debate on key issues. The week will also feature a President’s Reception on the eve of the World Travel Awards winners’ ceremony.

I look forward to joining the most senior travel industry figureheads from across the Caribbean and The Americas for what promises to be a fabulous event, acknowledging those organisations spearheading the growth of the region’s travel and tourism sector.”

Blessed by nature, Saint Lucia is a destination of breathtaking beauty, with volcanic mountains magically rising from the clear blue sea, paradise beaches, lush forests and rich cultural heritage.

“We are excited to host the prestigious World Travel Awards Caribbean & The Americas Gala Ceremony 2023 and join forces with the global travel and tourism industry to celebrate the 30th anniversary of World Travel Awards. The impact travel and tourism have on our island’s economy cannot be overstated.” – Honorable Dr. Ernest Hilaire, Minister for Tourism, Investment, Creative Industries, Culture & Information.

  1. A award should be given to the minister of tourism to combat gun related crime also as the country is also enjoying such.

  2. This article perpetuates the mass delusion in the minds of Caribbean citizens (and St. Lucians in particular) that tourism & its associated marketing schemes are the only way from which to earn a living!

    This tourism group-think bubble is going to burst sooner, rather than later, if the recent economic travails of the Europe & the US are actually noticed & analyzed; there is an urgent program for 80% of the world’s population (led by China, Russia, India & Brazil) to free themselves of the repressive yoke of US Dollar hegemony.

    Here is a link to an article, whose compendium of associated, relevant comments sounds the economic alarm klaxons to those who are not too deaf from standing too close to the speakers blaring out the popular soca tunes at their tourism fêtes & galas:
