WHERE THE WORLD MEETS
Trinidad & Tobago is one of the Caribbean’s most exciting destinations and is the ideal location for your next conference, exhibition, or meeting. Here are a few reasons why Trinidad and Tobago should be at the top of your list:
ONE DESTINATION, TWO UNIQUE EXPERIENCES
The beautiful twin isles offer different but equally exciting experiences and are only a 25-minute flight or 2.5-hour ferry ride away from each other. With award-winning eco-tourism and pristine beaches, tranquil Tobago is the perfect complement to metropolitan Trinidad where the action never stops.
BUISNESS CAPITAL OF THE CARIBBEAN
Trinidad and Tobago is considered as one of the premiere meeting destinations in the Caribbean. As one of the world's major producers of oil and gas, our thriving energy and business sectors are a catalyst for increasing airlift, advancing technology and telecommunications, and a rise in internationally branded hotels and world-class conference facilities, earning us the title of "Business Capital of the Southern Caribbean."
LOCATION AND ACCESS
Strategically located between North and South America, Trinidad and Tobago has always benefited from a favourable geographical location away from the hurricane belt and is widely considered to be the gateway to the Americas and the Caribbean. The Piarco International Airport is only a 35-minute drive from the capital city of Port of Spain. It is also one of the largest and most modern airports in the Caribbean with direct connections to over 26 destinations including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, South America and other Caribbean islands.
EXCEPTIONAL MEETING FACILITIES
Trinidad and Tobago is home to many international branded hotels including the Hyatt Regency Trinidad, Hilton Trinidad and Conference Centre, Radisson Hotel Trinidad, Courtyard by Marriott, and Holiday Inn Express. Trinidad can boast of having the largest conference facilities in the Southern Caribbean which is evidenced by the successful hosting of both the Summit of the Americas and Commonwealth Heads of Government Conference (CHOGM) in 2009. There also exists a range of unique meeting venues which are perfect for social events. Why not host your reception overlooking the Caribbean Sea, nestled among lush green mountains, or in an authentic Steel Pan Yard, home to Trinidad & Tobago’s national instrument and the only acoustic instrument invented in the 20th century!
DIVERSE ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS
The islands have a wide array of accommodation options ranging from internationally branded hotels to quaint boutique properties, villas, and bed and breakfast establishments, most of which are in close proximity to the island’s capital cities and provide quick access to conference venues. The city of Port of Spain also offers a myriad of activities in close proximity to most hotels in the Capital including dining, nightlife, architecture, and shopping.
CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS AND ACTIVITIES
Trinidad and Tobago, perhaps more than any other island in the Caribbean, is known for its rich multicultural heritage, a natural by-product of the various ethnic groups which settled here, including Indians, Africans, Chinese, Portuguese, Syrians, British, French and Spanish. This is reflected in our diverse cuisine, architecture, and festivals which offer delegates a truly multicultural experience.
