The Tourism Attraction Board (TAB) was established under the Tourism Attraction Board Law, 1996 (Law 17 of 1996) on 25 November 1996. The primary function of the Tourism Attraction Board is the general and financial management of Pedro St. James as a building of historic interest and a heritage site for visitors, and of such other land and buildings as may be vested in it or placed under its management, in accordance with the general policies of the Government. The Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park is a conservation effort of both the Cayman Islands Government and the National Trust for the Cayman Islands and was the second site placed under the management of the Tourism Attraction Board.
The Tourism Attraction Board also manages Pirates Week Festival, Hell and the Cayman Craft Market. The Pirates Week Festival is an annual event organized by the Pirates Week Committee. Since 1995, part of the activities of the Committee in connection with the Festival had been conducted through the Pirates Week Festival Limited (the "Company"), a Cayman Islands limited liability company. However, during 1998 a decision was taken not to use the Company for this purpose in future. The Company was struck off the Register of Companies in 2001. The assets and liabilities of the Company were transferred to the Festival and the Company was duly terminated. During 2001, “Pirates Week” was registered as a trademark with the Trade Mark Association.
The Tourism Attraction Board Office is located at Pedro St. James ‘Castle’, Pedro Castle Rd, P.O. Box 305, Grand Cayman, KY1 - 1501.
