    NEW YORK, June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- ID Media, the largest direct and

 Florida's HH Advertising to handle DRTV and online media planning and

 vacation and has been voted the Caribbean's Leading Hotel Brand at the

     ID Media was selected as media AOR based on their creative media
 strategies, DR expertise, travel experience and strong negotiating skills.
