Multi-Jurisdictional Conference proves the Caribbean region can work together

CC14TORONTO - For over 15 years, the steering committee for the STEP Caribbean Conference has been meeting to produce one of the world’s best attended and most talked about trust conferences. What makes this off-shore financial services conference so unique is the ability of these steering committee members to work together for the good of the region and for the benefit of their individual jurisdictions – all at the same time.

Unlike other initiatives in the region that attempt to bring together disparate and distinct countries, the STEP Caribbean Conference not only manages to put aside individual country and branch agendas, but also manages to attract international delegates and sponsors and most importantly speakers to the table each and every year.

The STEP Caribbean region, part of the larger STEP worldwide association is fast becoming one of the most influential and largest regions in the STEP world. For the first time ever, the STEP worldwide chair, Helene Lewis is from the BVI, marking a turning point for the global association.

“Not only has STEP Worldwide recognized the importance of the region in the global trust sector, but this conference has become one of the “must attend” events of the year” commented Lewis. “Every year for the past fifteen years, we welcome the world to one of our member jurisdictions and every year, they come in droves to the conference.”

This year’s conference in The Bahamas promises to deliver more of the same. Conference chair, Dianne Bingham is confident that delegates will come away from the conference fully equipped to deal with the on-going turbulence of the sector on a macro scale.

“Our delegates know that they are going to be connected with senior colleagues, speakers who are clearly thought leaders in their areas of expertise and a host of new business connections and opportunities,” commented Bingham.

This year media are invited to attend the conference and conference organizers have a few fully paid slots set aside for them, including expenses to and from the conference.

Bahamas Tourism is also on board and has agreed to host visiting journalists on a full day excursion of their choice.
