Burba Hotel Network (BHN) and CHTA have announced a strategic alliance with regards to the Caribbean Hotel & Resort Investment Summit (CHRIS). The goal of the alliance is to utilize our respective strengths to stimulate investment in the Caribbean hotel and tourism market via the CHRIS conference which takes place annually in Miami.
“CHTA has its finger on the pulse of the Caribbean hotel and tourism industry 24/7, and we look forward to working with the Association to shine an even brighter spotlight on the investment opportunities in the region. A great annual conference, just got better,” said Jim Burba, President of BHN.
“Investor interest in the Caribbean continues to grow, thanks in part to the focus which CHRIS has provided over the years,” stated Frank J. Comito, CHTA’s CEO and Director General. “CHTA is pleased to team up with BHN. We look forward to working with the CHRIS planning group over the coming months, as we put in place new initiatives and build upon CHRIS’ proven successes, all aimed at shinning the light on the many and varied tourism investment opportunities throughout the Caribbean,” Comito added.
The 2017 CHRIS conference is being held at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami on April 26-28, 2017. The conference will immediately follow a second important event, the Hotel Opportunities Latin America (HOLA) conference. The back-to-back nature of the two events provides a venue for the hotel investment community that is interested not only in the Caribbean, but also in Latin America, to conduct their business while in Miami. CHRIS and HOLA are hosted by BHN. For additional information about the CHRIS conference, please visit the website.
