MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services, recently honored David Morritt, developer and CEO of Morritt Properties Cayman Ltd., for his ongoing contributions to the Cayman Islands’ tourism industry. The company also recognized Hon. Moses Kirkconnell, Cayman Islands’ deputy premier and minister of District Administration, Tourism and Transport, for his leadership in the tourism sector.
The awards were presented during a reception hosted by Interval in recognition of the 30th anniversary of Morritt’s Resort. The special event was attended by Morritt’s executive team and resort staff, government officials, and industry partners.
“We are very proud to recognize David for his extraordinary vision and enduring commitment to shared ownership,” said Marcos Agostini, Interval’s executive vice president of business development. “Morritt’s Resort has been an important factor in the economic growth of the East End community and, in turn, the Cayman Islands’ tourism industry.”
Since it opened in 1989, Morritt’s Resort has expanded to include three properties and is currently the country’s largest shared ownership developer. Plans for a $30 million expansion to include a seven-story building as the centerpiece of the resort were recently announced.
During the reception, Interval took the occasion to highlight the many accomplishments of Hon. Kirkconnell. “Since assuming his role, Minister Kirkconnell has encouraged investment in the country’s tourism sector and has shown ongoing support of shared ownership,” Agostini noted.
Under Kirkconnell, the Cayman Islands has experienced significant growth in visitor arrivals, in part attributed to the country’s commitment to infrastructure development. These include an approximately $67 million expansion project at Owen Roberts Airport that has almost tripled the size of the existing airport to accommodate 2.5 million travelers per year.
