This year’s Saint Lucia Showcase 2015 event was held at The Grove 5 Star Hotel & Resort in Hertfordshire and hosted by model Annaliese Dayes of Britain’s Next Top Model fame.  Special guest entertainment was provided by The Voice winner, Jermain Jackman who wowed guests with his incredible vocals.

Louis Lewis, director of tourism, Saint Lucia Tourist Board said: “The Saint Lucia Showcase 2015 has gone from strength to strength and has become a permanent fixture in the UK travel trade calendar.  The quality of meetings and networking is encouraging and demonstrates the love affair the UK has with our beautiful island.  Our ever evolving products and on-island services will ensure that 2016 will prove a fantastic year of UK visitation to Saint Lucia”.
