Epic $1.7mil Sponsorship Deal Above Board, Assures TTL Chairman

The Chairman of Tourism Trinidad Ltd is assuring that, contrary to questions raised, there was no conflict of interest surrounding the $1.7mil sponsorship deal between TTL and Dream Weekend LLP for the Epic Carnival Expe­ri­ence Cruise 2023.

This as it has been revealed the TTL Board Member Natania Mack is the sister of Dream Weekend CEO Jonathan Mack.

Reports by the Express newspaper state that this was brought to the fore in a letter by then acting manager, Legal Services and Corporate Secreta­ry, Gabriella Sambrano-­Mendez to the TTL chairman.

Mack confirmed that her brother was in fact Jonathan Mack, but im­mediately distanced her­­self from her brother’s company, stating, “I am not a Director of Dream Weekend LLP. I do not own any shares in Dream Weekend. I do not have any beneficial interest in, nor do I receive any financial and/or other gain whatsoever from Dream Weekend LLP.”

Mack added that once she was alerted of Dream Weekend LLP’s intention to seek to do business with Tourism Trinidad, she immediately informed the Chairman the relationship, subsequently recusing herself from matters associated with the Company.
