At Marketplace 2018 we will be shaking things up, adding a vibrant new look, more buyers and exciting new activities that will strengthen the connectivity between all industry stakeholders. We will also be addressing issues of rebuilding and recovery.
“In rolling out a reenergized Caribbean Travel Marketplace, we look forward to showing the world how the courage, determination and hard work of the Puerto Rican people and tourism industry have prevailed in view of the challenges they are currently facing,” said Frank Comito, director general and CEO of the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA).
In order to make the most out of Marketplace do not miss out on these important dates:
Marketplace is produced by CHTA in collaboration with the Puerto Rico Convention Center District Authority, the Puerto Rico Tourism Company and the Puerto Rico Hotel and Tourism Association.
The Puerto Rico Convention Center will see a dynamic array of meetings between hotel and destination representatives, online travel agents, tour operators and MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions) planners with a busy program of thousands of pre-scheduled appointments. Marketplace 2018 will also see a wider range of suppliers eager to promote their new contributions to this fast growing sector.
“In addition to the traditional partners and Marketplace participants, we want to stimulate and maintain these fresh connections to ensure current and future suppliers can remain abreast of the expanding needs of tourism at the region’s largest and longest running marketing event. Our team at CHTA is constantly adjusting to a changing and competitive travel environment, so we can exceed delegates’ expectations,” Troubetzkoy said.
In 2017, Caribbean Travel Marketplace, hosted by The Bahamas, attracted 114 buyer companies from 20 countries. More than 1,100 delegates from 31 countries participated in more than 10,000 pre-scheduled appointments. Click here for Supplier Registration, and click here for Buyer Registration.
