With a stroke or two of their pens, reporters, editors and young people could secure scholarships and fellowships to attend one of the most sought-after media gatherings in the Caribbean.
Now in its 10th anniversary year, the 20th Caribbean Media Exchange on Sustainable Tourism (CMEx) will focus the next symposium on public relations.
In partnership with New York University, CMEx will introduce the Caribbean public relations industry to the latest in top notch research to help practitioners promote sustainable tourism development.
In addition to discussing media relations, social media and crisis communications, topics which affect the current state of the industry such as airlift, fuel prices, the environment, tourism linkages and tapping emerging markets will also be examined.
