The Caribbean ticks all the boxes when it comes to cost, security, convenient access, high quality accommodation, meeting facilities and services in a client’s choice of conference and incentive venues.

The appeal and prestige of the region is unrivalled, plus the distinctive charm and atmosphere of an exotic location. Add the range of pre and post conference tours available and the ability to combine different destinations and it’s easy to see why the Caribbean is fast becoming a leading contender in the Conference and Incentive market.

The Caribbean is famous for its tropical charms and can lend a glamorous cachet to any corporate gathering. But when it comes to getting down to business, it can easily rise to the challenge of providing first-class hotels and first-rate facilities in addition to a fabulous array of tempting leisure pursuits.

The Caribbean has an enviable reputation of hosting major sporting and business events that stretches back decades. From high-profile gatherings of heads of state to company functions and group incentives, the region has all the right ingredients to make such occasions a success.

The biggest and most modern facilities tend to be concentrated on islands such as Jamaica, the Bahamas, Barbados, Martinique, Cuba and Puerto Rico. These not only have impressive conference centres equipped with the latest high-tech facilities, but they also have the modern hotels and infrastructure to cope with such events.

Some conference centres are attached to established hotels, making it easy to concentrate conference events, and their delegates, in one place. Alternatively, smaller groups planning business meetings or seminars can opt for more atmospheric, intimate hotels that they can completely take over for a function. But when it comes to incentive groups, the Caribbean really comes into its own with its varied menu of activities amid beautiful surroundings that few other destinations can match.

Another of the region’s strengths is its location, within easy reach of America, Europe and Africa with numerous direct flights to many of the islands, making it easy for participants to fly in from all directions.
