Founder of G Adventures Bruce Poon Tip will deliver the keynote address at a special virtual conference, called “The "Future of Caribbean Tourism - Redefining the three S’s,"  on Sept. 27, 2021.  

The day-long event is being held in observance of World Tourism Day and brings together a range of stakeholders across the tourism spectrum to discuss the outlook for the region’s primary revenue earner.

In presenting the keynote address, Poon Tip, a world-renowned advocate for sustainable tourism and environmental protection, will discuss three priority areas for the region: social inclusion, sustainability, and smart destinations and businesses.

“I am so encouraged about the direction and steps the Caribbean Tourism Organization and regional partners are taking to build travel back better in the region following the global pandemic. Community tourism is an incredible way to help make a difference and has the potential to have a hugely positive impact for the Caribbean and those who live there, when done right,” said Poon Tip, whose group adventure travel company, G Adventures, has been a pioneer of community tourism.

“I am humbled to be able to contribute to the conversation and hope that together we can all help change more lives through travel. As a proud, Trinidadian-born, travel professional and social entrepreneur, I am honoured to have been invited to speak and I look forward to connecting with the wider Caribbean tourism community."
