SVGTA kicks off ‘Discover SVG’ road shows


The St Vincent and the Grenadines Tourism Authority (SVGTA) will host a series of Road Shows later this month in Canada, to offer more information on Air Canada Rouge flights to St Vincent as well as destination activities and accommodations.

The Road Shows in Canada will be the third leg of “DiscoverSVG” Road Shows being undertaken in the destination’s main tourism source markets.

A delegation from the SVGTA headed by CEO of the Authority Glen Beache is currently in the United Kingdom for the Road Shows in that market. The delegation also includes Chairman of the SVGTA Board of Directors Bianca Porter, Marketing Officers Natasha Anderson and Jamali Jack as well as representatives from local hotels. They joined Barbara Mercury and Gracita Allert of the SVG London Tourist Office, for events with travel trade personnel in London, Brighton and Birmingham.

The DiscoverSVG Road Shows will continue from September 24 to September 28 in Canada where events will be held in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Oakville, Kingston, Ottawa and Montreal.

The USA leg of the Road Show will run from October 1 to October 4 with events in New York, Philadelphia, Connecticut and Boston. The SVGTA will also extend the Road Shows to the Caribbean Market during the month of November, which is also celebrated across the region as Caribbean Tourism Month.
