Barbados wins bid to host 2018 SATW Convention
The Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) has selected the island of Barbados as the host destination for its 2018 annual convention. This is the first time that any Caribbean nation has been selected as the convention host destination. The announcement was made at the 2017 SATW Annual Convention held in Portland, Oregon, United States.
SATW is a professional association comprised of 1100 writers, photographers, editors, broadcast/video/film producers, bloggers, website owners, public relations experts and hospitality industry representatives from the United States and Canada. Founded in 1955, the society’s members represent some of the most influential content producers in the travel industry with work that can be seen throughout all print, digital and broadcast platforms.
“Barbados is a world class destination that is uniquely suited to host the conference in 2018. Despite the intense competition to host our organisation, Barbados’ reputation as a bastion of story ideas for travel editors – both those in the US and Canada – propelled its bid to the winning position. From its hotels to its unique attributes, we knew it was a place that would be interesting to our members,” said incoming SATW president Barbara Orr.
