Dozens of South Florida’s mainstream and Caribbean media were hosted on the grounds of History Fort Lauderdale last week Wednesday on April 3rd, for the official media launch of The Taste the Islands Experience (#TTIX2019) event weekend.
The team at Island Syndicate, lead producers of the 3-day event, were on hand to meet and greet sponsors, partners, talent, media and other stakeholders in the occasion.
Attendees enjoyed Korbel champagne, light island bites, and Caribbean music courtesy of Sir Rockwell.
Island Syndicate Creative Director, Calibe Thompson, painted a picture of three exciting event days from April 26 to 28, each with delicious culinary profiles and each with unique characteristics.
The company’s Brand Strategy Director David I. Muir, host of the Taste the Islands TV show Hugh “Chef Irie” Sinclair, and Friday night TTIX Under the Stars producers Tyrone Robertson and Daniel Abbott interacted with the audience answering key questions about how the events would unfold. Closing with a few words were island partners from Barbados and the US Virgin Islands, who shared their individual experiences and evolving relationship with the team and event.
