Caribbean Travel Marketplace will return to Puerto Rico January 28-30 when the region's largest and most important marketing event will be held at the Puerto Rico Convention Center in San Juan for the first time since January 2010.
Produced by the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA), Caribbean Travel Marketplace is attended annually by more than 1,200 delegates from international tour operator and wholesale companies as well as representatives from Caribbean hotels, destinations and attractions.
"We have chosen Puerto Rico as the host country for Caribbean Travel Marketplace 2015 because of the world-class facilities offered at the Puerto Rico Convention Center as well as the accessibility of the destination for the CHTA membership and the international delegates that will be in attendance," said Jeffrey S. Vasser, CHA, director general and CEO of CHTA, in a written release.
In addition to CHTA, the Puerto Rico Destination Team comprised of the Puerto Rico Hotel & Tourism Association (PRHTA), the Puerto Rico Tourism Company (PRTC) and Meet Puerto Rico, will organize Caribbean Travel Marketplace along with host sponsors Interval International and MasterCard.
Over the course of two days, Caribbean Travel Marketplace affords hotels and destinations of all sizes the opportunity to meet face-to-face with wholesalers selling Caribbean vacation travel. Registration for Caribbean Travel Marketplace 2015 will open up in July with full conference details available via the CHTA website, www.caribbeanhotelandtourism.com.
In 2014, Caribbean Travel Marketplace saw 11,560 pre-scheduled appointments between Caribbean hoteliers, destinations and attractions and the international buyers. Another highlight from the 2014 edition was first time buyers from Chile, the Czech Republic and Hungary as part of the wholesaler companies from 20 total countries which also included Argentina, Bahamas, Barbados, Canada, Dominican Republic, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, Poland, Russia, Spain, United Kingdom and United States.
