SAN JUAN — The Caribbean’s biggest travel conference is coming to Jamaica.
The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association’s Caribbean Travel Marketplace will be held at Jamaica’s Montego Bay Convention Centre from Jan. 29 to Jan. 31, 2019.
The event will be held in collaboration with the Jamaica Ministry of Tourism, the Jamaica Hotel & Tourist Association and the Jamaica Tourist Board.
“I am very pleased to announce that Jamaica will once again play host to an important tourism event,” said Jamaica’s Minister of Tourism, Edmund Bartlett. “It is an incredible achievement for our country and I am certain we will reap significant benefits.”
This year’s Marketplace, which was held at the Puerto Rico Convention Center in San Juan, was a major boost for Puerto Rico’s recovering tourism industry.
“Jamaica is synonymous with exceptional hospitality, world renowned culture and incredible beauty,” said Frank Comito, CEO and Director General of the CHTA. “We look forward to continuing to offer our participants a high quality program to engage with industry peers and promote travel to our region.”
