Trinidad and Tobago is known as a world leader in the organisation and presentation of carnival festivities both in Trinidad and Tobago and in other cities across the world. The local Masquerade sector, which focuses on design, production and presentation of costumed bands, has become one of key drivers in the Carnival business landscape of Trinidad and Tobago. Having emerged primarily as a creative activity and a socio-cultural practice, the Masquerade industry has now evolved to also become a substantial contributor to the local economy during the Carnival season. In addition, Carnival festivities are viewed as a potentially viable and sustainable global economic industry supported by talent, expertise, skills and knowledge that are almost exclusively indigenous to Trinidad and Tobago. Carnival is in this context considered Trinidad and Tobago’s most important cultural export.
