The Cayman Islands Department of Tourism strengthened its diversity marketing efforts by participating in the 2022 National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) joint convention in Las Vegas last week.


Recognizing the close bonds which both African Americans and Hispanic Americans share with the Caribbean, the Cayman Islands participated for the first time in the premier conference for journalism education, career development, networking, and industry innovation, attracting leaders and influencers in journalism, media, technology, business, health, arts, and entertainment. 

Thousands of top journalists, media executives, journalism educators, public relations professionals, and students from the United States and further afield gathered in Las Vegas, August 3-7, 2022.

The spirit of carnival was on full display during a Cayman Islands Department of Tourism-sponsored Founders’ reception, and Director of Tourism Rosa Harris provided a substantive destination update while participating in a stimulating discussion on building bridges between the African American and Caribbean communities.
