Attraction providers and hoteliers have already registered for Connect Barbados, a business-to-business marketplace with more than 100 participants (inclusive of 56 tour operators). The event will take place on May 1.
Under the theme "Breathing Power into Business Connections," the three-day conference is now in its 14th year. Tour operators have been invited from Barbados’ main source markets: the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Canada, Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America. Tour operators, such as Air Canada Vacations, Virgin Holidays and Expedia Group, have already registered to come learn about what is new in the destination.
Connect Barbados is an annual conference for island operators to sell Barbados’ vacation products to invited tour operators from all the island’s major source markets.
Global travel partners in the marketplace can learn about and experience the latest product and service developments on the island, while providing local partners a means to thank them for the offerings they continue to make to the success of Barbados’ tourism sector.
This year, to commemorate the Year of Wellness and Soft Adventure, tour operators will be treated to an outdoor welcome reception at the “Feet in the Sand Beach Party,” featuring local entertainment and cuisine, before undertaking two full days of business-to-business meetings at the Hilton Barbados Resort.
To finish the conference, a special final evening reception will be held at the Harrison’s Cave and tour operators could tour the cave first-hand. On the last day, participants will tour the island for an Attractions Day, inspecting places of interest based on their specialties.
