Destination Experience spreads its wings to Barbados


JJ-JThe Destination Experience Visionaries Summit launches in Barbados next Thursday. The move follows the success of the Destination Experience in Jamaica, with the conceptualisers following on their plan to expand throughout the Caribbean, starting with Barbados — with an expectation to head into Trinidad next year.


Event 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.


The two-day event has become an innovative platform since its inception in Jamaica in 2014 — connecting people, ideas and opportunities with the ultimate goal of unlocking each country's potential through entrepreneurship and engagement.


In January the group pulled together a number wealthy individuals controlling equity exceeding US$100 billion and has generated deals exceeding US$300 million in investment for Jamaica across a number of industries, according to a Destination Experience news release.


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”, honored 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, the release stated.


The forum is designed for relationship building, communication and organic business development, and is “a catalyst for wealth creation which exposes business leaders to the challenges and opportunities presented in an increasingly complex technology-driven, multi-dimensional global economic environment”, according to the release.
