Welcome President of the World Travel Awards The Americas & Caribbean Ceremony 2011 When we choose our holidays we aim for paradise on every front: perfect weather, incredible beaches, rich culture and sumptuous hospitality. Jamaica offers this magic formula, and it is with great pride that World Travel Awards returns to this paradise island for the second year running. Our decision reflects how Jamaica is continuing to spearhead the Caribbean’s travel and tourism sector. Growth this year is set to surpass the five percent gain of 2010, and demonstrates how during times of global economic uncertainty world-class brands come into their own. Rather than rest on its laurels, Jamaica possesses a boundless appetite for reinvention – a spirit exemplified by our host this evening, Sandals Resorts International. We are honoured that our ceremony forms part of this iconic brand’s 30th anniversary celebrations. Sandals is also helping to reignite travel and tourism across the Caribbean with a $500 million programme that will further cement its position as leaders in the industry. There is no question that the region offers tremendous opportunities, particularly from emerging source markets of the BRIC economies. However to unlock this potential, accompanying governmental support remains vital, including the easing of restrictions that currently limit intraCaribbean travel.

For World Travel Awards, the year is shaping up to be one of most ambitious yet in our 18-year history. I am pleased to report that the number of organisations nominated for the “Oscars of the Travel Industry” has risen 13 percent year-on-year. Meanwhile the number of voters is up 11 percent year-on-year, driven by a surge in consumer voting. This reflects how the public now rely increasingly on World Travel Awards as their gold seal of travel excellence. Winning a World Travel Award is the ultimate travel accolade, with the endorsement of over 213,000 voting travel professionals demonstrating to both the travel industry and the travel consumer that your brand stands in a class of its very own. I wish to extend a special thank you to our event partners Sandals and WeClickMedia, as well as our media partners JaxFax, eTurboNews, TravelDailyNews and Breaking Travel News. Honouring and promoting excellence and innovation in travel and tourism are why we are gathered all here. Thank you for joining us on this very special occasion, and congratulations for your incredible achievements. Enjoy! Graham E. Cooke President and Founder World Travel Awards

Welcome Chairman of the Sandal Resorts The Americas & Caribbean Ceremony 2011 It is my sincere pleasure to welcome you to Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort & Private Island and to our company’s home base of Montego Bay, Jamaica. Hosting the 2011 World Travel Awards Caribbean & The Americas Gala is an honor and privilege any time, but it is made especially sweet this year since it coincides with the 30th anniversary of Sandals Resorts International. We are thrilled to share this special moment in our history with hospitality and travel leaders from across the region and the world. The all-inclusive concept was not new when Sandals Resorts opened its doors to guests for the very first time in the winter of 1981, but it had never been done like this. Sandals introduced travelers to in-room amenities now considered commonplace such as king-size beds, clock radios and hair dryers. Later, we liberated the all-inclusive concept from the buffet line by establishing specialty restaurants, true à la carte dining, at all our resorts. Guests were delighted by these seemingly extravagant touches and there and then we made a commitment that has become the hallmark of our company: to consistently exceed our guests’ expectations.

Today, that promise continues with our Luxury Included® concept that has truly redefined the standard of luxury at Sandals Resorts with unprecedented services and amenities including lavish suites with private plunge pools and whirlpools, exclusive dining options, private islands like the one we gather on this evening and celebrated partnerships that include the London-based Guild of Professional English Butlers, wines from Beringer Vineyards and weddings by style icon Martha Stewart. And we continue to find new ways to dazzle the customer. Here in Jamaica, we’re getting ready to unveil a $25 million renovation to Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort and will soon break ground on a Greg Norman championship golf course on Jamaica’s undiscovered South Coast. Like all of you, we are passionate about travel and the visitors we welcome. It is with this genuine excitement that we once again welcome you to Jamaica, our home, and that we congratulate this year’s nominees. We are delighted to be among and most certainly to host, those who relentlessly pursue excellence. All that’s good, The Hon. Gordon “Butch” Stewart Chairman, Sandals Resorts

Spotlight on

The Caribbean & The Americas Following the economic downturn of 2009 – dubbed a ‘crisis year’ amid what was one of the most turbulent periods in tourism history – the Americas rebounded steadily in 2010, as international tourist arrivals increased by six per cent to 150 million, according to the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO). The Americas are expected to continue to show resilience over the coming decade: by 2020, they will be the third highest receiving region in the world, with 282 million visitors annually, according to UNWTO predictions. The region’s overall results in 2010 were boosted by growth in the US economy and the strength of the Latin American economies, as international tourism receipts increased by five per cent to US $182 billion. Destinations that led the way included the United States, which has benefited from the launch of the US Travel Association, Mexico and Canada – all of which ended the year with positive results. As new destinations emerge alongside traditional ones, South America has posted the strongest results in the Americas with arrivals up 11 per cent. Argentina was the star performer, followed by Uruguay, Ecuador, Brazil and Peru. 6

These results were boosted by Brazil’s emergence as one of the fastest growing source markets in the world, now ranking the third largest outbound market in the Americas by expenditure. Meanwhile over in the Caribbean, as islands continue to roll out new and innovative developments, international arrivals rose by four per cent in 2010, with three major destinations – Jamaica, Cuba and the Dominican Republic – recording new peaks. In Central America arrivals also rose by four per cent in 2010. All destinations in the subregion reported growth except Guatemala.

Consolidation is in the air The Americas is presently playing host to the biggest merger in airline history, with the multi-billion dollar United-Continental deal set to create the world’s largest carrier, dwarfing rivals on both sides of the Atlantic.

United Continental Holdings owns both United Airlines – nominated as North America’s Leading Airline at this year’s World Travel Awards (WTA) – and Continental Airlines – nominated as North America’s Leading Airline and North America’s Leading Transatlantic Airline – and is currently merging both into a single carrier – ultimately to be called ‘United’. But the two will continue to operate separately until mid2012, selling their own tickets for flights on their own planes. Rival, Delta Air Lines – nominated as the Caribbean’s Leading Airline, North America’s Leading Airline and North America’s Leading Transatlantic Airline – has now finished absorbing Northwest Airlines after its 2008 purchase and is operating across six continents. Meanwhile, South America’s aviation landscape is also moving towards consolidation.


WTA_Caribbean_Prog_v2_Layout 1 05/10/2011 11:49 Page 7

Chilean airline LAN is still bidding to buy Brazilian rival TAM – South America’s Leading Airline in 2010 – having received approval by the antitrust unit of Brazil’s finance ministry. But the deal is not obstacle-free, as the tieup is also under discussion in Chile, where local airline PAL has protested. Meanwhile Caribbean Airlines – the Caribbean’s Leading Airline – continues its integration with Air Jamaica following its merger earlier this year. The carrier recently launched services to Orlando Airport. Barbadian short haul, low-cost carrier REDjet also commenced commercial operations between Trinidad and Guyana on September 12th. Airlift to the Caribbean from Europe is also set to increase, with BA – named World’s Leading Airline Website in 2009 – launching a new service from London to Puerto Rico in March. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines – Europe’s Leading Airline – is preparing to offer an additional 2,600 seats each week to the Caribbean when its winter schedule goes into effect on October 30th 2011.

Hotel developments South America’s Leading Hotel Group – Marriott International – is launching its Autograph Collection in the Caribbean in 2012 with the acquisition of the luxurious 67-room Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina in the British Virgin Islands. RockResorts is expanding in the Caribbean with the opening of Balcones del Atlántico on the Samaná Peninsula of the Dominican Republic; the first luxury resort situated

near the small fishing village of Las Terrenas. RockResorts’ Lodge at Vail was named North America’s Leading Ski Resort at last year’s WTA. Hyatt Hotels & Resorts is venturing into the Dominican Republic as part of its Caribbean expansion, with the opening of The Hyatt Regency Cap Cana Hotel, Villas & Residences in Punta Cana in 2014. Hyatt Hotels is nominated as both the Caribbean’s Leading Hotel Brand and North America’s Leading Hotel Brand at this year’s ceremony. Sandals Resorts International – the World’s Leading All-inclusive Company and the Caribbean’s Leading Hotel Brand in 2010 – has launched its environmental management programme in a bid to reduce its environmental footprint as the brand celebrates its 30th anniversary. In other Caribbean developments, work has begun on the $3.4 billion Baha Mar, the largest resort development in the history of the Caribbean, slated to open in the Bahamas in 2014. The resort boasts a roster of names in luxury hospitality, will create a total of 2,250 new rooms, and will contribute almost $1 billion to the local economy in its first year of operation.

On the ground A new port terminal opened this year in Falmouth, on Jamaica’s north coast, with shops, restaurants and a residential area where fly-cruise visitors can spend time before or after their cruise. In 2010, Jamaica was named Caribbean’s Leading Destination and Caribbean’s Leading Tourist Board at the WTA.

Commenting on Jamaica’s overall performance in 2010, John Lynch, chairman of the Jamaica Tourist Board, revealed: “In the midst of the global economic challenges, Jamaica’s growth in 2010 is remarkable. “We are fortunate to have an unrivalled tourism product offering diverse vacation experiences to the most discerning traveller and this is complimented by a high touch quality service which makes our visitors want to return.” Meanwhile a new alternative, affordable daily ferry service is being introduced by BEDY Ocean Line in November that will connect Barbados, Saint Lucia, Trinidad, Grenada, and St Vincent. Pinewood Studios is planning a new film and TV studios in the Dominican Republic. The Pinewood Indomina Studio will comprise of a 5,000 square metres of sound stage space, along with 15,000 square metres of production support facilities. Meanwhile Canada was in the spotlight this year as The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge embarked upon their first official tour following their highly publicised wedding. The visit also included a two day trip to Los Angeles where the Royals were welcomed at a Bafta reception attended by international celebrities. Find out which of these exceptional tourism organisations and professionals have gone that extra mile this year and will walk away with coveted World Travel Awards accolades tonight.

World Island Awards Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin, Germany 6 March 2012


WTA_Caribbean_Prog_v2_Layout 1 05/10/2011 11:50 Page 20

World’s first ceremony to promote Island Tourism World Travel Awards has unveiled a new awards programme to celebrate and reward luxury tourism to island nations. World Islands Awards will take place on the eve on ITB Berlin 2012, with Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority signed as the official partner. It is the only event of its kind dedicated to recognising Island Tourism around the world.

20

Through this partnership, Mauritius will spearhead the drive for the promotion of Island Tourism worldwide, as well as ensuring that it remains at the forefront of the luxury tourism map. The paradise island is currently enjoying a thriving tourism economy under the leadership of Minister of Tourism, HE Nandcoomar Bodha, and Dr Karl Mootoosamy, Director, Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority.

The inaugural ceremony will take place at Hotel Adlon Kempinski, Berlin’s most exclusive five-star hotel, on 6 March 2012.

Dr Karl Mootoosamy, Director, Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority, said: “Our new partnership with World Island Awards will serve as an excellent vehicle to promote the core values of Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority – in particular our emphasis on people, the environment and the capacity to ensure customer satisfaction.”

The two-year agreement comes hot on the heels of Mauritius being named one of the coolest destinations for 2011 by Futurebrand and British Airways, and being voted “World’s Leading Island Destination” at the 2010 World Travel Awards.

The Indian Ocean nation – which is best known for its azure waters, white beaches and luxury spas – will also showcase itself as a world-class destination to travel professionals and media from around the world.

Graham Cooke, Founder, World Island Awards said: “On behalf of World Island Awards, I am delighted to have Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority as our partner. “This nation typifies luxury tourism at its finest, and serves a benchmark for how island nations can travel and tourism for social and economic betterment.” The awards will serve to reward excellence across all areas of tourism of the world’s island nations. Categories will include: “World’s Leading Island Resort”, “Asia’s Leading Island Resort” and “World’s Leading Island Destination”. Over the past thirty years, Mauritius has expanded its luxury tourism sector. The travel and tourism sector has become more vital than ever to the nation’s economy due to declining sugar prices and economic infeasibility of textile production. Limited space for tourism means that Mauritius continues to promote only elite and specialist tourism, while budget travel is not encouraged.
