The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) and the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) have announced that the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel & Casino in San Juan, Puerto Rico will be the host venue for the annual Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Investment Conference (CHTIC) in 2012 and 2013.
CHTIC 2012 will take place April 24-26, 2012, while CHTIC 2013 is scheduled for May 7-9, 2013.
"We have chosen Puerto Rico as the host destination for these crucial investment focused events for the next two years because of increased airlift options available to potential delegates traveling from the Caribbean as well as internationally," said Josef Forstmayr, president of CHTA, in a written release.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for companies seeking to elevate their presence at these events. Sponsors will be highlighted throughout the conferences, as well as in CHTA's marketing and public relations activities leading up to and following the event.
The Sponsors' Exhibit will also afford direct contact with representatives of sponsoring companies and will be open throughout the conference.
Immediately following the conference, CHTA will host its committee meetings, Board of Directors meeting and the Annual General Meeting.
Building on the momentum achieved in recent years with a growing interest in Caribbean tourism development, CHTIC is staged by two not-for-profit organizations - CHTA and the CTO. CHTA represents the regional hotel and tourism associations and CTO is the public sector tourism body, which represents the countries of the region. All funds from the conference are reinvested in the region for the benefit of the Caribbean tourism industry.
