The seventh installment of Showcase Antigua Barbuda, a travel trade business-to-business destination event, will be presented by the Antigua & Barbuda Hotels and Tourism Association (ABHTA), in collaboration with the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, between June 8 and 10, 2022.   

The event, which did not take place over the past two years due to the pandemic, has been redesigned with a focus not only on the business aspect of the one-on-one meetings with tourism-related businesses, but also presents the destination’s offerings of Culture & Heritage, Wellness, Romance, as well as Yachting & Sailing.   

In a press release, Patrice Simon, executive director of the ABHTA, said, “Giving our partners the opportunity to experience the destination firsthand is important now more than ever. We are looking forward to welcoming our partners from the U.S., U.K. & EU, Canada and the Caribbean for face-to-face meetings with our members. As travel continues to rebound, we cannot miss an opportunity to showcase Antigua and Barbuda to the key decision-makers in the travel industry.” 

Colin C. James, CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, wants travel partners to continue to keep Antigua and Barbuda top of mind. Said James: “Antigua and Barbuda has incredible new product offerings that have come on stream since 2020 and we are more than ready to wow our travel partners, some of who will be making their first visit back to Antigua and Barbuda since the pandemic.” 

Showcase Antigua Barbuda will include a welcome event on June 8, which will be followed by a full day of business meetings on June 9 and the opportunity to play and explore the destination on June 10. Travel partners and local stakeholders can also look forward to a new element being added to this year’s event which will include sessions of consultations on the destination and exploring avenues for growth and development of the industry. 

More details on registration will be shared in the coming weeks.
