CTB and Fundashon Bon Intenshon (FBI) were joined by Miss Curaçao, Kanisha Sluis for the media tour which included several visits to radio and television stations. Following the media tour, press members were invited for the official presentation at Don Julio’s Bar Bistro. About 150 people including press, travel agencies, tour operators and airlines representatives visited the Meet & Greet. Some of the greatest artists in their musical genre will perform in this year’s event including Juan Luis Guerra, Kassav, Lenny Kravitz, Tom Jones, J. Balvin, Chris Brown and many more.
