 TDC Hosts Convention Bureau Business Forum


The Trinidad and Tobago Convention Bureau (TTCB), a unit of the Tourism Development Company, will host a Convention Bureau Business Forum on Friday 19th August, 2016 at the Banquet & Conference Centre at Movie Towne, Port of Spain.


As the TDC focuses on the development of the MICE (Meetings, Incentives Conferences and Exhibitions) niche, the Business Forum is intended to lift the profile of the Convention Bureau by raising awareness about its role and complimentary services. The Business Forum will be attended by representatives of the business community and professional bodies. It will showcase how TTCB can add value to an association’s conference and demonstrate the possible economic impact for Trinidad and Tobago.


The forum’s keynote speaker is Ms. Connie Kinnard, Vice President Multiculturalism Tourism & Development at the Greater Miami CVB. Looking forward to the event, Ms. Kinnard, a renowned industry expert from an international convention bureau said, “I am excited to share some of my experiences in the hospitality industry and particularly my efforts in showcasing and promoting a destination’s multicultural heritage. This is my first visit to Trinidad and I look forward to experiencing the food, music and the unique culture that the island offers.” The Honourable Shamfa Cudjoe, Minister of Tourism will deliver the Feature Address at the forum.
