Minister for Tourism, Civil Aviation & Culture, Hon. Alexandra Otway-Noel, led Grenada’s delegation at World Travel Market (WTM) in London on Monday, including promoting Grenada on TV, radio and print media interviews and attending a briefing by the Caribbean Council on the UK’s APD Campaign.
The Minister also welcomed distinguished guests including H.E. Mr Joslyn Whiteman, High Commissioner for Grenada in the UK and Rosalind Howells, Baroness Howells of St Davids, as well as a delegation of Grenada hoteliers and service providers.
In addition, the Minister marked a ‘big win’ at the annual Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) Meet & Reward the Media Awards held at WTM: Grenada – the location for Spice Trip for Channel 4, produced by Alchemy TV — won the coveted Best Broadcast award.
The Minister collected the award with Alchemy TV managing director, Nicola Gooch; director Caroline Ross-Pirie; and Spice Trip presenter and London restaurateur, Stevie Parle. An hour-long episode about nutmeg in the Spice Trip, presented by Parle and spice expert Emma Grazette, was first broadcast in the UK on Channel 4 in December 2012 and is currently available on the channel’s website.
The Minister also participated in airline meetings, further media interviews, and joined a Caribbean Ministers’ delegation to meet with officials of HM Treasury.
