Caribbean Ball UK
The UK Chapter of the Caribbean Tourism Organisation hosted its successful and ever popular annual summer ball, at the five-star Dorchester Hotel, on London’s Park Lane, on 17 June 2010. Attended by 325 guests, the black tie event began with a welcome reception with a steel band. A three-course dinner followed and guests within the ballroom included industry partners across all sectors including national tourist offices, airlines, hotels and hotel representation companies, tour operators, travel agents and the media, from both trade and consumer outlets.
The after-dinner entertainment was this year provided by DJ Martin Jay (from Choice FM) and from the band Tropical Elements, who got the crowd up and dancing until 01.00hrs with a mixture of soca, reggae and salsa.
The ball continues to be seen as one of the highlights of the travel industry calendar and was sponsored this year by British Airways, Virgin Atlantic Airways, Travel Weekly and Exposure4.
