Aruba Prepares to Host Caribbean Marketplace 2007

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.
