St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Ellison “Tommy” Thompson, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of St. Kitts Tourism Authority, was at the Caribbean Travel Forum and Marketplace 2023, selling the destination and putting emphasis on the Summer of Fun Campaign.
Thompson updated the media at the Marketplace held in Barbados from May 9-11 about the Federation’s offerings.
Outside of extending the reach of St. Kitts as a go-to destination for travellers at international expos, a rum society out of Florida visited the island to check out the growing distillery.
Jay Cocorullo, Founder of the Florida Rum Society and other representatives were on the island as guests of the authority to experience St. Kitts’ Growing Rum Scene.
On their first international trip as a rum society, the club chose St. Kitts as the first territory to bring members to experience the Old Road Rum Distillery and other locally produced rums in the Federation, bringing the distillery industry back.
