U.S. Ambassador Nicole Avant Attends Travel Professionals Of Color Opening Ceremonies

Ambassador Nicole A. Avant gave welcoming remarks at the opening of the Travel Professionals of Color annual conference at the Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort in The Bahamas. In her remarks, the Ambassador reiterated her commitment to advancing partnerships between American and Bahamian businesses, especially in the area of cultural heritage tourism. She said, “Many American tourists – particularly minority American tourists – are looking for a more substantial interaction with The Bahamian people and their history. These individuals are looking to form personal connections with this beautiful land, and, for this reason, I am very encouraged to see that you will spend much of your agenda discussing the development of Cultural Heritage Tourism in The Bahamas and throughout the Caribbean Region.”
