Caribbean tourism stakeholders are gearing up with excitement for the 41st Caribbean Travel Marketplace, set to take place in sunny Barbados next week!
Produced by the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) and hosted by Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. and the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA), the event provides an invaluable opportunity for tourism suppliers to meet face-to-face with wholesalers from around the world who specialize in selling Caribbean travel experiences.
Unlike a typical trade show, the primary focus of Caribbean Travel Marketplace is to foster fruitful negotiations between suppliers and buyers, ultimately benefiting the entire region.
Who can attend?
Suppliers, Buyers, Marketing/Technology professionals, and members of the Media
Only companies meeting the specified registration criteria can participate; no daily passes or general admission are available. The two-day event comprises pre-scheduled appointments between suppliers and buyers. An appointment clock guides buyers to their next designated supplier appointment at specific locations.
More than 50 local, regional, and international journalists will be in attendance, shining a spotlight on Barbados and the Caribbean’s thriving
Just before the official opening of Marketplace on Tuesday, May 9, the Caribbean Travel Forum will provide a platform for leaders from the public and private sectors to discuss the future of Caribbean tourism and build upon the region’s existing successes. The forum, themed “Tourism: The key driver of generational wealth for Caribbean nationals”, will be held at Sandals Royal Barbados from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. An awards luncheon will feature destination resilience winners and other special honorees
