Following on the success of the Destination Experience in Jamaica, the conceptualizers are now following on their plan to expand throughout the Caribbean, starting with Barbados.

The plan is to also take Destination Experience to Trinidad and Tobago.

Guests will be hosted at the luxurious Limegrove Lifestyle Centre on October 6th as the event aims to connect wealth and ideas with opportunity. Organisers will launch the summit on October 5.

“We are working to spark an entrepreneurship and innovation revolution in the Caribbean. Our goal is to connect the best in the Caribbean with the best in the world, driving a paradigm shift in the economic outlook of the Caribbean” said Kirk-Anthony Hamilton, Founder and Curator of the Destination Experience.   

Since its inception in Jamaica in 2014, this 2-day event has become an innovative platform - connecting people, ideas and opportunities with the ultimate goal : through entrepreneurship and engagement - to unlock the potential of each island nation.

In January of 2017 the community pulled together a collective of individuals controlling equity exceeding US$100 billion and has generated deals exceeding US$300 million in investment for Jamaica across a number of industries

Celebrated by President Barack Obama at The White House in 2015 as “An innovative platform for the promotion of entrepreneurship and a unique business catalyst”, honored by The World Economic Forum in Davos and supported by Forbes Magazine and other industry greats, The Visionaries Summit aims to be a catalyst for change in the economic conversation in Barbados and the wider Caribbean.

This event is interactive and like no other. The organizers have created an experience specifically targeted for the global community of entrepreneurs, investors and influencers to engage and build relationships with the local and regional captains of industry. The forum is designed for relationship building, communication and organic business development. It is a catalyst for wealth creation which exposes business leaders to the challenges and opportunities presented in our increasingly complex technology driven, multi-dimensional global economic environment.
