BRADES, Montserrat – The Honourable Premier Reuben T. Meade is presently at the Caribbean Hotel and Resort Investment Summit (CHRIS) in Miami, Florida this weekend.
According to Director of Infrastructure at the Montserrat Development Corporation (MDC) John Cox, the annual event gives governments across the region an opportunity to present hotel and tourism projects and to meet with potential investors.
Montserrat is on the programme to make a presentation on the Little Bay Development during Round Two of Meet the Opportunity on Monday afternoon at 2:55pm along with St. Eustatius, St. Kitts, St. Lucian and the US Virgin Islands.
Cox told ZJB News that this year’s conference will allow for follow-up discussions with investors with whom the MDC is already in talks with, as well as to meet new ones.
Mr. Cox, who is optimistic about going into detailed discussions with potential investors at the summit, says Montserrat will be represented by a strong team this year. Accompanying the premier and Mr. Cox will be MDC Chairman John Ryan, One Stop Shop Head David Chrichton and Consulting Architect for the Little Bay Master Plan Lane Pettigrew.
The Little Bay Master Plan includes the possibilities for villa properties on Potato Hill, one or two hotels on Little Bay Beach as well as condominiums on and around Benito Hill.
This is the second year in a row that Montserrat will be attending CHRIS Miami, which will be held May 6 – 7 at the JW Marriott Marquis.
