The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) is advising stakeholders of the postponement of the 10th Tourism Resources Conference, which was scheduled to take place in May. The new date for the event, being organised in collaboration with the Nevis ministry of tourism, is November 25-27, 2020.

“In light of the constantly changing nature of the coronavirus crisis, and in the wake of the decision by the World Health Organization to declare COVID-19 a ­pandemic, the CTO and the government of Nevis have decided that postponing the conference is the best course of action,” said Sharon Banfield, the CTO’s director of resource ­mobilisation and development.

The CTO will continue to diligently monitor the situation and pay close ­attention to guidance from regional public health officials.
