At a press conference held at the NIS conference room on Friday, October 31, the Vincy Tourism 30 second challenge was announced, and is open to any member of the Vincentian public.

Minister of Tourism Cecil McKie said that he is pleased at the launch of this competition, and the various other activities and events scheduled to take place this month.

“It’s a packed month of activities!” he enthused.

“We have to look to see how we can continue to refresh the tourism products that we have, to expand established new products, and to ensure that the destination continues to be competitive,” added McKie.

The Minister said that he is encouraged by the steadily increasing number of stakeholders who have been getting on board with the celebration of Tourism Month, formerly Tourism Week.

“I’m sure that that can only result in the growth and development of the tourism sector.”

The winners of this challenge will be announced at the Tourism National Awards and Cocktail on November 22.
