Tourism safety and security are imperative when providing quality in tourism. More than any other economic activity, the success or failure of a favourite destination depends on being able to provide a safe and secure environment for visitors.

It is an undeniable fact that safety and security issues in the tourism industry gained a much bigger importance in the last couple of years.

Because of this particular reason, the CuraÁao Tourist Board, in cooperation with Tourism and More Inc, will host the Caribbean International Tourism Safety & Security Conference 2015, which will be taking place from June 24-26 at the CuraÁao World Trade Center.

The main goal of the Caribbean International Tourism Safety & Security Conference is for every delegate to gain knowledge through the sharing of experiences and to enhance the awareness about tourism safety and security in the Caribbean. It also provides a unique opportunity to meet with hundreds of safety and security professionals from all around the world. On June 24, the Caribbean International Tourism Safety & Security Conference will start with a seminar for local stakeholders. The seminar will be conducted as an interactive discussion on the 'TOPPs' (Tourism Oriented Policing & Protection Services).
