28 MAR 2018: St. Vincent and The Grenadines Tourism Authority (SVGTA) have announced that they have selected VoX International as their public relations and communications representative in Canada. VoX will be managing media relations and day-to-day operations for the Canadian market.

The destination is poised to welcome more Canadians in 2018 with direct air service, the opening of its’ new International airport, exciting festivals and experiences that can’t be found anywhere else. VoX will be hosting a number of media familiarization trips to the islands, offering journalists a firsthand view and knowledge of the destination.

With the recent opening of the Argyle International Airport on St. Vincent, Canadian travellers will be able to explore the many adventures of St. Vincent and The Grenadines’ 32 idyllic islands and cays. Among unspoiled natural attractions and luxurious hideaways, the destination is ready to impress and embrace visitors; from hiking along the mountainous Vermont Nature Trail, kite surfing on Union Island, to diving in a bat cave and swimming in a crater of the La Soufriere volcano.

South of the largest island St. Vincent, The Grenadines are strung across 40 miles of typically tranquil waters, making these pristine seas prized for sailing, diving and snorkelling. Yachting and sailing enthusiasts come to St. Vincent from around the world to explore and enjoy all it has to offer.

Showcasing some of the best marina facilities in the world, the US$250 million Glossy Bay Marina recently opened on Canouan, which has set the bar for future marine development in the region.

“By selecting VoX International as our public relations agency in Canada, we are showing our commitment to the Canadian travel market by working with an industry-leading company,” said Glen Beache, CEO, SVGTA. “We cannot wait to welcome Canadian travellers to our destination in 2018.”

The destination’s diving and snorkelling is ranked among the best in the world. A must for underwater enthusiasts is Tobago Cays, five sibling islands (Petit Rameau, Baradel, Petit Bateau, Jamesby and Petit Tabac) surrounded and shielded by an enormous horseshoe reef, fostering some of the most vibrant, colourful and diverse ecosystems of undersea life you can find anywhere in the Caribbean.

Canadians will enjoy the local cuisine and culture when visiting St. Vincent and The Grenadines. Blessed with fertile volcanic soil, the islands offer visitors an array of locally grown fruits, vegetables and spices which enhance the exquisite local cuisine. Plus, all nine inhabited islands boast talented chefs and an assortment of incredible restaurants. Specialties include seafood callaloo soup, roasted breadfruit and fried jack fish.

Festivals and events are year-round, celebrating culture, heritage, music and sport.

During Easter, visitors and locals join in the excitement of the highly competitive yacht racing action of the Bequia Easter Regatta - taking place for the last 35 years this is now an internationally acclaimed sailing event.
