The yachting industry is vital to our region where events account for a large proportion of the reasons our visitors come to visit. For Jolly Beach Resort and Spa specifically, our location so close to Jolly Harbour, the largest accommodation and marina resort in the Caribbean, means the yachting industry is even more important to us."

President of the Caribbean Sailing Association, Kathy Lammers, says of the conference, "The CSA Annual Conference has become a must-do event on the calendar of a large number of yachting industry professionals from across the region. It provides a perfect opportunity for us to gather as a group in one location to discuss everything from trends in race management to sustainability, marketing, sponsorship, MNA and World Sailing hot topics and issues, and our keen focus on sailing development. It is a vital part of the annual planning process for most of the delegates who attend. We are very grateful to both Jolly Beach Resort & Spa and LIAT, the Caribbean Airline for coming on board as sponsors this year and helping to make this event possible."
