Welcome from Sylma Brown, Director, Caribbean Tourism Organization-USA, Inc.

The CTO is launching this platform as a testament to our continued commitment to you and a recognition that you have a desire to have a relationship with the Organization that is the definitive voice for the most important destinations in the Caribbean.

The evolution into one Chapter is in keeping with the changes in the industry and the way business is now conducted in this very competitive and lucrative industry. However, it does not mean that we have abandoned the personal touch. It is still very much a part of the strategy.

The Caribbean Tourism Organization is aware of the challenges that travel professionals face and we are confident in our ability to assist you in ways that matter most – opportunities for increased sales, education and networking.

The OneCaribbean Chapter will cater exclusively to the bona fide travel agent who continues to provide excellent results for our member countries and who has an interest in continuing to be productive in a professional business environment.  Caribbean trained and certified travel agents are particularly special to us, but we encourage those of you who wish to learn more about the region to take advantage of our destinations specialist programs and join OCC.

The OCC website will provide tools and resources that are informational, rewarding, and deliver one of a kind experiences to help you increase your sales.

We appreciate your business and your enthusiasm in selling the region.  Let us succeed together! Sylma
