St. Kitts makes a splash in New York

Representatives of the St. Kitts Tourism
Authority have offered a tempting glimpse into the scenic natural beauty, rich
heritage and genuinely welcoming people of the destination through their
participation in The New York Times Travel Show.St. Kitts was an exhibitor at The New York Times Travel Show held
at the Jacob
Javits Convention Center.
Numerous show attendees visited the St. Kitts
booth, where representatives of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority provided a
first-hand example of friendly, authentic Kittitian hospitality, offered
information and answered questions about the island.
The booth was distinguished by a large 8-foot
by 3-foot white banner bearing the destination’s official new logo,
recognizable by the red Poinciana flower and invitation to explore, love,
and remember. 

The St. Kitts
booth was truly a center of attention at the Show.
A 42-inch plasma TV showed eye-catching footage
of the island while the entertainment continued with performances at the
and on stage by St. Kitts’ masquerade troupe on Saturday and St. Kitts’ steel
band on Sunday.  A raffle drawing to win
a Grand Prize trip for two to St. Kitts was another part of the daily
excitement, as were tastings of Brinley Gold Rum and the island’s signature
sugar cakes.  Brochures and other materials
were given to attendees to take home, so learning more about St. Kitts didn’t
end when the show did!
