TSTT Leads at TIC

Trinidad - For the first time ever, Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT) will be a lead sponsor of the Trade and Investment Convention (TIC), bringing the full force of its infrastructure and technology to this premier business-to-business event. As Trinidad and Tobago’s leader in telecommunications, TSTT’s contribution to the convention is significant financially and in terms of infrastructural support. Running from April 30 to May 3 at the Centre of Excellence in Macoya, the four-day convention is the largest and most successful of its kind in the Caribbean. Last year TIC generated an estimated US$50 million through new partnerships and business deals. “TIC is one of the region’s most important business events, and plays a major role in positioning Trinidad and Tobago as the centre of regional manufacturing and trade. ” explains TSTT CEO Roberto Peón. “As the country’s sole full-service telecommunications provider – the only provider capable of offering the expansive levels of interconnectivity, communications and speed required to meet the convention’s needs – we are more than pleased to partner in this undertaking.” TSTT will provide TIC with its extensive communications technology – including Wi-Fi, e-Ticketing and Metro-E, a high speed network for business which supports voice, video and broadband. “Participants of TIC will be particularly impressed by the range of cutting edge telecommunications products we’ll be showcasing at the TSTT Pavilion,” said Mr. Peón. “Some they’ll recognise and some they would have probably never seen locally. We are talking about technology suitable for a truly wired society, a position we are achieving through our robust network.” Mr. Peón praised the Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturers’ Association (TTMA) for envisioning TIC, a marketplace for interaction among regional and international businesspeople.
