SLASPA hosts the region’s first Port Showcase September 23rd -25th

The Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority is from today hosting the region’s first ever Port Showcase.

This one of a kind event gives SLASPA and its stakeholders an opportunity to convene in one place, network, forge new business relationships, present their products and services and gain insight on the latest industry trends.

SLASPA’s premise for the event originated from the need to provide the wider business community and the general public with more information regarding the air and sea port industry as well as to educate students of the availability of port related careers.

A series of presentations are scheduled to take place, featuring presenters such as IATA’s Regional Director for Airports, Mr. Felipe Reis and King Ocean’s Head of Eastern Caribbean, LCL Sales Mr. Charles Gittens.

Of significance, will be topics of interest such as Operating a Multi-Use Port and Airports – Engine for Economic Growth. This will be presented by Mr. Daren Cenac. Other key stakeholders within the seaport and airport industry will provide pertinent information on the topic.

The event, is themed the “Promenade of Port Connectivity”.
