GIS:-The meeting focused primarily on selling Saint Lucia as a unique tourism destination.
Chief Executive Officer of the Florida Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA), held a meeting with tourism stakeholders in Saint Lucia earlier this week. The meeting focused primarily on safety and security, and selling Saint Lucia as a tourism destination with a unique tourism product.
The FCCA Chief Executive Michel Paige, said making Saint Lucia a destination in demand with a unique tourism product will result in greater economic benefits.
“The most important thing we discussed was what sets Saint Lucia apart. This is part of the message that we encourage from every single stakeholder who meets and greets any cruise passenger, any crew member, or any visitor. To be able to impact every single thing that sets Saint Lucia apart, whether it’s the natural attractions, the beaches, the wonderful cuisine, the hotels, or the friendly people, what you are selling is team Saint Lucia.”
Tourism Minister Hon. Dominic Fedee, said the FCCA has maintained its partnership with Saint Lucia, continuing to play an important role in the development and advancement of the local tourism industry.
“The tourism stakeholder meeting was successful. We received a lot of new information in terms of how the industry is performing from the FCCA, and we now have a better opportunity to go back to the drawing board and think about what each individual needs to do for Saint Lucia to become a more formidable destination.”
The Florida Caribbean Cruise Association is a not-for-profit trade organization composed of 19 cruise line members operating more than 100 vessels in Floridian, Caribbean and Latin American waters.
