The foundation has or had representation in Curacao, Aruba and Trinidad for this Carnival cycle.
It also combined those efforts with targeted online marketing in Miami, Atlanta, the Tri-State area (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut) and Boston. “When our members travel they reach out to the Carnival organizations in those countries as a sign of respect and to seek working ties and exchange ideas,” the SCDF said.
“They then get lots of opportunities to promote St. Maarten Carnival on radio and various mediums, encouraging Carnival lovers from those destinations to join our fete. The results have been great over the past few years and we are eager to build and expand on these relationships as St. Maarten carnival continues to grow in the region and beyond. This is part of our development and a major festival,” the foundation added.
