With a stroke or two of their pens, reporters, editors and young people could secure scholarships to attend one of the most sought-after media gatherings in the Caribbean.
Now in its 12th anniversary year, the 21st Caribbean Media Exchange on Sustainable Tourism (CMEx) will focus the next symposium on topics such as tourism growth and development, regional marketing, and the impact of the industry on youth, communities and the environment of the region.
The non-profit CMEx is finalizing the venue for the next symposium which highlights the energy and vigor of the media in the Caribbean, Latin America, North America and Europe, and exchanges experiences between media, young scholars as well as Caribbean and Diaspora leaders.
CMEx is an interactive networking forum which allows journalists and young leaders to interact with development specialists and representatives of the hospitality, civil society and government sectors.
Journalists and young people can apply for a limited number of awards. Full scholarships cover airfare, accommodation and registration, while partial scholarships cover accommodation and registration.
Application and General Registration Forms are available from the following link:
The deadline for applications is Thursday, August 8, 2013.
General delegate registration is on a first come, first served basis.
Space is limited.
Since 2001, the Caribbean Media Exchange (CMEx) has produced 20 conferences and symposia throughout the Caribbean and in North America to underscore the value of the region’s largest industry, tourism, in bettering the health, education, culture, environment and wealth of Caribbean communities, at home and abroad, in a climate friendly fashion.
The upcoming CMEx meeting is supported by the Barbara Pyle Foundation, Caribbean Broadcasting Union, Caribbean Business Enterprise Trust, 4P Group, Marketplace Excellence Corporation, Finn Partners, and The SpeakEasy M.E.D.I.A. Foundation.
