The Crystal Pineapple Awards is scheduled to be held on Saturday November 19th, 2016 at the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino starting at 6:30pm. The Crystal Pineapple Awards has been established in 2005 by the St. Maarten Hospitality & Trade Association (SHTA) to recognize outstanding performance and those individuals, companies and organizations which have made significant contributions to the tourism industry and the island as a whole. The SHTA, the largest private business representative on the island, is dedicated to bringing quality to all aspects of life on St. Maarten by promoting sustainable economic development for its members in cooperation with the social partners and the creation of a fair marketplace.

This year, SHTA selected “Branding Sint Maarten” as its theme. As the Sint Maarten Hospitality and Trade Association (SHTA), we think that our island can never be famous enough. The more people know about us and use our proficient hospitality and leisure facilities, as well as export our products, the more prosperous our society will get. For reinforcing our brand Sint Maarten, there is no need to look abroad. As we will show during the evening, our country provides excellent creatives capable of spreading all the beautiful things our island has to offer.
