The event looks to build on the strength of Travelweek’s first virtual conference in June, which drew close to 10,000 viewers.

“The timing couldn’t be better for our ‘Caribbean Comeback’ virtual conference,” says Travelweek’s Publisher, Devin Kinasz.

“While this is not a typical year by any means, several major tour operators have sun destination departures ready to go for the fall and winter months, and the COVID-19 travel insurance options are increasing by the week,” says Kinasz.

“Our friends and travel industry partners in the Caribbean are welcoming Canadian travellers back with open arms. Agents will hear all about it at our virtual conference. Plus, of course, there will be prize draws!”
