By BBN Staff: Minister of Tourism and Diaspora Relations Anthony Mahler is in Panama this week leading a delegation to attend the 27th Florida Caribbean Cruise Association’s Cruise Conference.
Mahler headed to Panama City along with the CEO of the Ministry of Tourism and Diaspora Relations, Mr. Evan Tillett, Director of Tourism, Belize Tourism Board, and Mr. Abil Castañeda, Director responsible for Cruise, Belize Tourism Board for the conference which was held from October 18-22, 2021.
According to the FCCA, the conference is designed to foster a better understanding of the inner workings of the cruise industry and help attendees improve their cruise tourism business. The conference is for anyone doing or looking to do business with the cruise industry, including ports and destinations; cruise and tourism agencies; tour operators; attractions; suppliers, and ship agents.
“Through a specialized forum that blends meetings and workshops with social functions, attendees have a unique opportunity to develop relationships with, promote products to, and learn from approximately 100 executives from FCCA Member Lines who decide where ships call, what is sold and used onboard and how to invest in destinations and infrastructure,” the FCCA said.
Attendance at the conference forms a part of the Ministry’s overall push to help the tourism sector recover after being shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic last year. Belize saw its first cruise ship call in 16 months on July 7, 2021, which industry stakeholders are hoping is a sign that better days for tourism are on the horizon.
