Barbados’ tourism sector has hit another regional and local milestone.

For the first time ever, the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) kicked off its annual conference in the Caribbean region with an opening ceremony this morning at the Hilton Barbados Resort.

Over 250 travel writers, bloggers and photographers will spend the next week touring, experiencing and writing about Barbados.

Additionally, SATW will discuss the state and future of the travel writing sector.

Minister of Tourism Kerrie Symmonds delivered remarks at the opening ceremony.

In welcoming the writers, Symmonds urged them to tell the story of Barbados, but not shy away from critiques as that would only serve to make the local tourism product better. (AD)
