UNWTOThe Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) is endorsing the UNWTO global conference to be held in Jamaica in November.

Adam Goldstein, FCCA’s executive committee chairman and current president and chief operating officer of Royal Caribbean Cruises, gave the approval to Edmund Bartlett, Jamaica’s tourism minister, during a private meeting between presidents and CEOs of FCCA member lines and ministers of tourism on October 25 in Merida, Mexico.

Strategies to drive year-round traffic to the region, the creation of more employment opportunities and the development of strategic partnerships were also discussed at the meeting.

Bartlett lauded the endorsement, which, he said would strengthen the expected impact the conference will have on the development of tourism industries across the globe.

Bartlett said, “This event will perhaps be the single most important conference in our country’s history. This endorsement by FCCA strengthens our efforts to coordinate an international road map which will foster collaborative relationships for more inclusive economic and social development of countries across the world via tourism.”

The UNWTO’s “Global Conference on Jobs and Inclusive Growth: Partnerships for Sustainable Tourism” will be held November 27-29 at the Montego Bay Convention Centre and is expected to attract hundreds of international and local participants.

The event will bring together world leaders from the tourism industry along with other experts.
