Delegates from within and without the region are gearing up for the Caribbean’s largest tourism marketing event, which will be held in Montego Bay, Jamaica next year.
The 37th edition of Caribbean Travel Marketplace, slated for January 29 to 31, 2019, will bring together hotel and destination representatives; wholesalers and tour operators; online travel agencies; Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) planners; and members of the media for several days of business meetings, including a busy program of thousands of pre-scheduled appointments.
Caribbean Travel Marketplace is produced by CHTA in collaboration with the Jamaica Hotel and Tourism Association and the Jamaica Tourist Board. In 2018, Caribbean Travel Marketplace, hosted by Puerto Rico, attracted 102 buyer companies from 20 countries. More than 1,000 delegates from 26 Caribbean countries participated in more than 9,800 pre-scheduled appointments.
Caribbean Travel Marketplace 2019 is expected to have even more buyers and exciting new activities that will strengthen the connectivity between industry stakeholders.
