The month of May is Dominica's Official Tourism Awareness Month. This year May 26th has been set aside for a historic Mini Trade Show in the community of Mero which will showcase the heritage, products, and services of the members of the Dominica Community Tourism Associations around the island.

This event is being organized by the Dominica Community Tourism Association Inc. (DCTAI), which is an umbrella organization of all community tourism organizations on the island.

This Community Tourism mini trade show is the perfect atmosphere in which the DCTAI can be recognized by stakeholders/partners within the Tourism Industry and the general public. It will also be an opportunity to get to know more about the concept of Community Tourism in Dominica and to identify opportunities and ways for networking, partnership and even selling our products and services.

This is the first of what we hope to be an annual event and this will be the best opportunity of the year for Community Tourism Service and Product Suppliers to meet and possibly form lasting partnerships.

The event will be promoted throughout the month of May through the media and other special events prior to the actual event. Each sponsor of the trade show will receive maximum benefit through promotion of the company's products and /or services. A prize will be given to the best arranged booth.

The DCTAI is seeking sponsorship in cash or kind. This contribution will go a long way in enhancing Dominica as the Premier Community Tourism destination.
