CURACAO (October 4, 2012) - The Caribbean should step up its regional marketing efforts and unite around a single marketing brand, proclaims a leading tourism expert.
"The time is right for us to get together and promote the diversity of the region under one brand," said Beverly Nicholson-Doty, tourism commissioner of the United States Virgin Islands, calling for a fresh approach to regional marketing.
U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS (September 27, 2012) - The United States Virgin Islands Department of Tourism is partnering with Brand USA on a campaign to increase visitation by Canadian residents. The partnership marks the first between Brand USA and one of the five U.S. Territories.
Under the partnership, the United States Virgin Islands Department of Tourism contributed more than $100,000. Brand USA intends to use the contribution to geo-target Canadian residents, the second largest international visitor arrival market for the Territory.
"Through Brand USA's marketing efforts, the U.S. Virgin Islands will amplify its reach into the Canadian travel market," said Commissioner of Tourism Beverly Nicholson-Doty. "We are pleased to partner with the first entity to promote inbound travel to the United States and to help increase awareness and interest in travel to our islands."
Beverly Nicholson-Doty calls for greater Caribbean collaboration on clean energy
U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS (September 25, 2012) - The Caribbean can seriously advance local, regional and global action on sustainable energy development - especially if they worked together, says a senior regional tourism official.
"By investing more in renewable energy technologies and reducing our dependence on fossil fuels, we can protect the environment and create a more competitive tourism business environment with lower operating costs and greater efficiencies," reasons Beverly Nicholson-Doty, Commissioner of Tourism of the United States Virgin Islands.
