Caribbean Exporter’s Toolkit

Any business can export products or services but the process can be complex and challenging and success is far from guaranteed.

But a marketable product or service is only the beginning.  Exporting takes time and effort. It also takes resources and a strong commitment to compete beyond your current borders. If you are focused and committed you must first assess your readiness to enter the global marketplace.  Follow our 10 Steps guide to help to achieve success in exporting.

    Design Caribbean is the region’s leading contemporary design event displaying the Caribbean’s finest handmade designs and innovative products.

    Design Caribbean is the re-branded Caribbean Gift and Craft Show (CGCS), which was staged for the first time in 2011. Design Caribbean has received plaudits from exhibitors, visitors, buyers and the press for successfully re-establishing the event, as the largest contemporary design trade event in the Caribbean.

    Inspired by the passion and talent of both distinguished and aspiring artists, Design Caribbean showcases the very best of the region’s finest handmade products and innovative designs – in contemporary craft, music, fashion and film.

    Design Caribbean boasts over 100 regional exhibitors with more than 1000 products – it is the place to spot future talent and emerging brands and is where visitors from the region, North America and Europe leave with a true sense of the diversity and creativity that breathes vibrancy into the Caribbean region.

    Design Caribbean is truly committed to quality, in terms of show presentation and promotion, as well as having a selective approach to exhibitors alongside a comprehensive roster of the best media and industry partners across the region.

    Design Caribbean is organized by Caribbean Export, a trade and promotion organization with 15 state regions, whose mandate is to “take Caribbean excellence to the world”.

    Encapsulating the spirit of design to ‘celebrate the beautiful,’ the event is held bi-annually within a CARIFORUM member state.
