Tourism Workshop – Alexa Cooper-Grant, Innovation Director, TCI
Tourism innovation in TCI started with a vision: “We envision becoming a country where the very mention of our name invokes images of peace, safety and security, a place where residents and visitors enjoy authentic experiences,” said Alexa Cooper-Grant, Innovation Directorr for TCI.
“Having successfully established an image as a luxury destination, the Turks and Caicos Islands has an opportunity to lead the way in the region and become the “new luxury” benchmark against which other destinations are measured.”
TCI’s tranquil, luxurious settings, where nature and protection of the environment are considered sacrosanct and sustainable development is pursued for the benefit of all our citizens, residents, investors and visitors.
The Turks and Caicos islands has built its innovation in tourism around three As: improving accessibility of the islands by accessibility – both air and sea, improving accommodation – hotels, villas and b and bs and improving attractions museums and art houses.
