Des­ti­na­tion Ex­pe­ri­ence Vi­sion­ar­ies Sum­mit to “con­nect wealth and ideas with op­por­tu­nity”

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Oc­to­ber 5th, 2017 will see the launch of the Des­ti­na­tion Ex­pe­ri­ence Vi­sion­ar­ies Sum­mit in Bar­ba­dos. Fol­low­ing on the suc­cess of the Des­ti­na­tion Ex­pe­ri­ence in Ja­maica, the con­cep­tu­al­iz­ers are now pur­su­ing their plan to ex­pand through­out the Caribbean, start­ing with Bar­ba­dos, with an ex­pec­ta­tion to head into Trinidad next year.

Guests will be hosted at the lux­u­ri­ous Limegrove Life­style Cen­tre on Oc­to­ber 6th as the event aims to con­nect wealth and ideas with op­por­tu­nity.

“We are work­ing to spark an en­trepreneur­ship and in­no­va­tion revo­lu­tion in the Caribbean. Our goal is to con­nect the best in the Caribbean with the best in the world, driv­ing a par­a­digm shift in the eco­nomic out­look of the Caribbean” said Kirk-An­thony Hamil­ton, Founder and Cu­ra­tor of the Des­ti­na­tion Ex­pe­ri­ence.

Since its in­cep­tion in Ja­maica in 2014, this two-day event has be­come an in­no­va­tive plat­form - con­nect­ing peo­ple, ideas and op­por­tu­ni­ties with the ul­ti­mate goal: through en­trepreneur­ship and en­gage­ment - to un­lock the po­ten­tial of each is­land na­tion.

In Jan­uary 2017 the com­mu­nity pulled to­gether a col­lec­tive of in­di­vid­u­als con­trol­ling eq­uity ex­ceed­ing US$100 bil­lion and has gen­er­ated deals ex­ceed­ing US$300 mil­lion in in­vest­ment for Ja­maica across a num­ber of in­dus­tries

Cel­e­brated by Pres­i­dent Barack Obama at The White House in 2015 as “An in­no­va­tive plat­form for the pro­mo­tion of en­trepreneur­ship and a unique busi­ness cat­a­lyst”, hon­oured by The World Eco­nomic Fo­rum in Davos and sup­ported by Forbes Mag­a­zine and other in­dus­try greats, The Vi­sion­ar­ies Sum­mit aims to be a cat­a­lyst for change in the eco­nomic con­ver­sa­tion in Bar­ba­dos and the wider Caribbean.

This event is in­ter­ac­tive and like no other. Or­gan­is­ers have cre­ated an ex­pe­ri­ence specif­i­cally tar­geted for the global com­mu­nity of en­trepreneurs, in­vestors and in­flu­encers to en­gage and build re­la­tion­ships with the lo­cal and re­gional captains of in­dus­try. The fo­rum is de­signed for re­la­tion­ship build­ing, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and or­ganic busi­ness devel­op­ment. It is a cat­a­lyst for wealth cre­ation, which ex­poses busi­ness lead­ers to the chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties pre­sented in our in­creas­ingly com­plex tech­nol­ogy-driven, multi-di­men­sional, global eco­nomic en­vi­ron­ment.
