Exhibit at Wellness Retreat

At this year’s SOTIC in The Bahamas, under the theme “Rejuvenate. Recreate. Reconnect.  New Directions for Caribbean Tourism”, CTO will host a wellness showcase.

SOTIC will focus on exploring opportunities to innovate, and to utilize the unique experiences and authentic products to stimulate increased travel to the Caribbean. The purpose of the wellness showcase is to facilitate the promotion and sale of goods and services available in the region. We will also host a wellness retreat to give a first-hand experience of the host product to retreaters.

The Caribbean has been recognized as a region that epitomizes wellness.  CTO wants to help the region become more visible in the wellness space so we are providing an opportunity for wellness companies to participate in this exhibition to showcase their goods and services.

SOTIC offers a platform for brand promotion and business development for companies and can substantially increase awareness of brands in the tourism and hospitality sector.  This is an event not to be missed if you are focused on promoting your business to the right audience.
