Destination Symposium: Destination Symposium is the premier marketing event of the US Virgin Islands and for the past 18 years it has been touted as the best in the Caribbean – one day of business meetings, where buyers and suppliers are matched for one on one appointments. The business appointments set the tone of vacation packaging over the next year. We offer one day of industry presentations by the Department of Tourism, Activities and Attractions and HTA’s Cooperative Marketing Initiative (CMI). Our magnificent resorts offer a specialty theme dinner nightly to showcase the latest in culinary cuisine. Our buyers also have time for site inspections so we are sure they experience everything our members have to offer.
