The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA), producers of the Caribbean’s largest and longest-standing tourism marketing event, has started its countdown for the 38th Marketplace, taking place Jan. 21 to 23, 2020.
Caribbean Travel Marketplace gathers hotel and destination representatives as well as other tourism providers; wholesalers and tour operators; online travel agencies; along with media representatives for two intensive days of business meetings, including thousands of pre-scheduled appointments.
This marquee event will be held at Baha Mar’s Performing Arts and Convention Center, one of the newest and most impressive resorts in the Caribbean region. Collaborating in the meet-up are Baha Mar, Bahamas Hotel & Tourist Association (BHTA), Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board.
“We are looking forward to an incredible travel event in the Bahamas, that brings together all stakeholders and business prospects to one location,” stated Frank Comito, Director General and CEO of CHTA, who added the meeting will build on the success of the previous Marketplace in Jamaica, which attracted no less than 148 buyers, 64 of which were new, including 18 new Chinese entrants.
Comito encourages suppliers and buyers to take advantage of the registration flash sale through Sept. 3.
