Travel Agent was on hand Monday morning for a press conference hosted by the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) as part of the 30th annual Caribbean Travel Marketplace.
The event, which took place in The Bahamas for the first time since 2008, drew roughly 276 supplier companies, 695 supplier delegates, 140 buyer companies, and 336 buyer delegates. There were a total of 1,190 delegates, which was a slight drop off from the 1,518 who attended the event in Jamaica last year.
According to CHTA President, Josef Forstmayr, this was the first time in the last three years that the event drew buyer companies from 15 different islands.
