The conference, held from October 30 to November 1st, focused on the theme of “Navigating the Next Phase of Caribbean Tourism – Talent & Technology 2024 & Beyond.”
ABHTI Chairperson of the Board of Directors and Acting Executive Director Raynel Carroll represented the institute at the event, which brought together professionals from the tourism, hospitality, and technology industries to discuss insights into the future.
As ABHTI seeks to position itself as the premier hospitality institute of the OECS, the conference provided a roadmap for the future of hospitality and tourism.
During the three-day event, talks were held with various stakeholders in Nevis for an exchange program between the colleges in St. Kitts and Nevis and ABHTI.
The insights gained from the conference will serve the institute well and further the hospitality and tourism industry.
One of the key takeaways from the conference for ABHTI was the importance of developing a skilled workforce in both hospitality and technology.
By providing the necessary training and skills required to succeed in this competitive field, ABHTI is committed to meeting the needs of the industry’s future.
