Anticipation continues to build for what will be the 40th edition of the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association’s Caribbean Travel Marketplace conference.
This year’s event will be held at the Puerto Rico Convention Center in San Juan from Oct. 3 to 5.
“The Caribbean is still one of the world’s most desirable destinations and we are looking forward to the convergence of buyers and sellers of Caribbean tourism to advance the region’s recovery,” said Karen Whitt, chair of this year’s Caribbean Travel Marketplace.
This year’s registrations are already outpacing expectations, according to the organization.
Buyers from 14 countries and suppliers from 21 different countries and territories have already confirmed their participation.
“We have focused on attracting buyers from new locations, and they are delighted to attend an event where all of the Caribbean will be in one location,” Whitt said.
Whitt also said buyers of MICE [Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions] and destination wedding experiences have also confirmed their participation.
It will be the first in -person edition of Caribbean Travel Marketplace since the onset of the pandemic.
The 2020 edition was held at the Baha Mar resort in The Bahamas just a few months before the pandemic began.
