SLTB’s Director of Marketing for the US, Kelly Fontenelle-Clarke, appeared on ABC Tampa Bay’s Morning Blend Show on Wednesday, August 2. She was the featured guest on the show’s Elite Travel segment along with Elite Travel’s CEO, Tammy Levent.

Recently concluded events that formed part of the Soleil Festival were the successful debut of Roots and Soul in June and Saint Lucian Carnival.
