Antigua and Barbuda Gears Up for Record-Breaking SIDS Conference with Cruise Ship Lodging


Antigua and Barbuda is preparing for its largest-ever conference, the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) conference, hosting over 5,000 delegates including top officials and activists.

In addition to 2,500 hotel rooms, cruise ships may be used for accommodation, pending ongoing negotiations.

The American University of Antigua is constructing a conference center, and transportation arrangements, involving 86 buses and 50 cars, are being prioritized due to road congestion.

The conference, estimated at a cost of US$6 million, will be supported by external donors, including pledges from China, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

Law enforcement discussions are underway for venue security during the May 27 to 30 event, themed ‘Charting the Course Toward Resilient Prosperity.’
