St. Maarten –  The Crystal Pineapple Awards voting period closed last week Wednesday with once again a record number of votes for the more than 65 nominees that are all looking forward to be the winners in their  category.

This year, Sonesta Maho’s new Executive Chef Misja Ruijs will prepare the culinary extravaganza that over the years has continuously surpassed everyone’s expectations. Glitter Events has been contracted to transform the venue into a magical ambiance suitable only for St. Maarten’s best and brightest stars in the tourism arena. Guests will be delighted by Arias, St. Maarten’s new classical young vocalist group consisting of sopranos and tenors, who will open with the Sweet St. Maarten song and close the event  with “Time to say Goodbye”.

With only 4 days left till the Award Gala Event, limited tickets are still available at the SHTA office at a cost of $150. Purchasing a table of 10 is also possible. Each ticket gives access to the welcome cocktail party, the recognition ceremony, a sumptuous dinner, the silent auction and live entertainment.

The St. Maarten Hospitality & Trade Association hosts its 9th Crystal Pineapple Awards Gala Event this Friday  at the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino, recognizing excellence in service in the tourism, trade and environmental industries.
