(PRESS RELEASE) — The Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA) will host the region’s first-ever Port Showcase.
This one-of-a-kind event will give 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 seaport 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: “Operating a Multi-Use Port and Airports – Engine for Economic Growth” where the presenter Mr. Daren Cenac and other key stakeholders within the seaport and airport industry will provide pertinent information on the topic.
The event, which is themed the “Promenade of Port Connectivity,” and will feature some prominent business entities of the port community and is expected to take place from September 23-25, 2019.
