Buyers who attended Caribbean Marketplace in 2006 generated more than $80 million in new business, while suppliers realized over $120 million in new business. Caribbean tourism suppliers are from 36 Caribbean destinations. The format of the event is two days of pre-scheduled business appointments. Buyers and suppliers meet face-to-face to discuss existing contracts, develop packages, and contract for future business. It's reported that buyers and suppliers anticipate a 40 percent increase in new business in 2007. For U.S. visitors or those traveling through the U.S., Aruba provides U.S. pre-clearance services, in which visitors clear U.S. customs and immigration in Aruba.
