The annual Caribbean Conference on Sustainable Tourism Development is part of the information dissemination and regional awareness component of CTO’s Strategy for Sustainable Tourism. It looks at how member states can design and implement sustainable tourism policies and programmes offering a regional forum for information exchange on the successes and pitfalls of national, regional and international initiatives. Organized by the CTO, it has evolved from the Caribbean Ecotourism Conference held from 1991 to 1996.

The Caribbean Tourism Organization’s Caribbean Conference on Sustainable (STC) 2019, will be hosted in St. Vincent and the Grenadines amidst an intensified national thrust to make the country more sustainable.
Several initiatives geared towards a greener, more climate resilient country have been initiated by the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and local NGOs. Among these are the construction of a geothermal plant on St. Vincent to complement the country’s hydro and solar energy capacity and the restoration of the Ashton Lagoon on Union Island. These approaches aid in maintaining St. Vincent and the Grenadines’ reputation as an unspoilt destination.
STC 2019 is a fantastic opportunity to visit our shores! Book your stay at one of our boutique hotels or retreat to one of our island resorts.
Let our warm Vincy People pamper you and your family, as St. Vincent and the Grenadines has what it takes to satisfy every soul! The Ministry of Tourism, Sports and Culture and the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Tourism Authority look forward to warmly welcoming you to “the Caribbean you’re looking for”.
