: "SUSTAINABLE CULTURE TOURISM THROUGH CARNIVAL AS A REGIONAL PRODUCT"
The Caribbean Carnival Conference 2018 seeks to develop a platform for dialogue and to share best practises among the national Carnival and festival stakeholders. This would provide an opportunity for the various actors to learn from each other and for more experienced and developed countries to share/transfer knowledge and skills. Additionally, in the current environment where many of the traditional art forms associated with Carnivals are threatened with extinction, hosting of a Caribbean Carnival Conference would facilitate the showcasing of regional talents, service providers and related enterprises as a way of providing market access to generate business opportunities and potentially lead to the establishment of a Regional Network of Practitioners associated with Carnival.
The inaugural Conference will be held at the Financial Centre Conference Hall, Castries St. Lucia on 18 and 19 January, 2018
