In the company of friends and loyal collaborators, our publication celebrated the end of a successful year of work and the advent of a new stage of challenges and projects that will contribute to the development of the Caribbean tourism industry.
The news office in Cuba hosted the gathering at the Tablao of the Alicia Alonso Grand Theater of Havana, attended by representatives of the International Press Center, led by its director, Alberto González Casals; of the office in Havana of the Italian Agency for Foreign Trade, the Ministry of Tourism, joint ventures, Cuban hotel chains and associated companies, airlines, travel agencies and tour operators, service providers and colleagues from the specialized press, among other collaborators.
Dr. Josefina Pichardo, TTC Correspondent in Cuba, thanked the participants for their deference and summed up the main achievements of the year that is coming to an end, in which a new product was successfully developed: the specialized electronic bulletins for events, which respond to the strategy of expanding digital services according to the industry’s new trends.
The specialist briefly explained the projects for the new year, in which the participation in Argentina’s International Tourism Fair (FIT 2019) is added, which will expand the portfolio of printed editions which the Caribbean’s tourist news brings to the main international fairs of the sector.
She stressed that during 2018 the recognition of TTC increased when it was chosen as media partner of the MITM Americas Havana event and of the Italian Agency for Foreign Trade during FIHAV 2018, distinctions that guarantee the experience acquired in 22 years of work.
The cocktail party had the organizational support of the Artex S.A. Company of Artistic and Literary Promotions, the Havanatur S.A. International Group of Tour Operators and Travel Agencies and of the artisan Yorlenis Meriño, who gave the participants a beautiful present molded in cold wax.
The María Alejandra y Cubanía medium-format group was in charge of the music, a talented project that got everyone dancing with authentic Cuban music.
