This annual publication will fill a void in the event industry marketplace by showcasing leading Caribbean venues, event spaces and event suppliers
Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) January 21, 2015
Today, Vice President of Brafford Media & Technologies Group, Alicia Roachford Brathwaite, announced the launch of Meet In The Caribbean Magazine. A first of its kind, this annual publication will fill a void in the event industry marketplace by showcasing leading Caribbean venues, event spaces and event suppliers, and include articles providing event tips, ideas and information specifically designed for wedding planners, event planners, businesses and organizations planning corporate or social events in the Caribbean.
This first issue features venues and event service providers from Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada and Turks & Caicos. Gracing the front cover, and a featured venue in the magazine, is the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre in Barbados, one of the largest conference centers in the Southern Caribbean.
Surveys show a large and ever increasing percentage of event and wedding planners worldwide use the power of the internet to research destinations, venues and event service providers. Recognizing this growing trend, this new Caribbean guide is completely digital and works in tandem with the online venue and event supplier directory on the Caribbean Event Suppliers Network web portal at http://nexgenmeetingrooms.com/.

In her remarks Alicia Roachford Brathwaite emphasized that “At Brafford, we are not event planners but rather event enablers. We will work closely with the Caribbean’s Ministries of Tourism, hotel and tourism associations, as well as stakeholders in the hospitality and event industries to ensure that the information we provide is both relevant and current.”
Not dismissing the fact that there are a few websites which already promote venues in the Caribbean, Brathwaite said that “With these existing sites, Caribbean hotels, venues and suppliers are usually sharing the spotlight with others from around the world. Meet In The Caribbean Magazine and the Caribbean Event Suppliers Network provide branding which is totally Caribbean and allows us to more effectively showcase our vast meeting and event resources, highly experienced event planners and our rich, yet diverse cultures. After all it is a well know fact that the best events are the ones held in Paradise.”
