Antigua and Barbuda is set to hold its annual Showcase Antigua and Barbuda event, the destination’s leading travel trade show.

Now in its sixth year, the event aims to increase tourism business from Antigua and Barbuda’s main source markets in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean region.

More than 100 delegates have already signed on, including 80 suppliers of excursions, restaurants, hotels and DMCs.

Buyers set to arrive include executives from Expedia Group, Apple Leisure Group, Tripadvisor, Air Caanda, British Airways and Virgin Holidays, among others.

“Showcase Antigua Barbuda allows us to wow our travel trade partners, by introducing them to the amazing sights, sounds and tastes of Antigua and Barbuda over a whirlwind two days,” said Colin C. James, CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority.
