Jamaica to host 2019 Caribbean Travel Marketplace
The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association announced that the 37th edition of Caribbean Travel Marketplace will be held at the Montego Bay Convention Centre from January 29 to 31
The event will be held in collaboration with the Jamaica Ministry of Tourism, the Jamaica Hotel & Tourist Association and the Jamaica Tourist Board.
Produced by CHTA, Caribbean Travel Marketplace brings together hotel and destination representatives; wholesalers and tour operators; online travel agencies; Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) planners; and members of the media for several days of business meetings, including a busy program of thousands of pre-scheduled appointments.
Chief Executive Officer and Director General of CHTA Frank Comito announced that after an incredibly successful 36th convention in San Juan, Puerto Rico last week, the trade association is delighted to return the event to Jamaica next winter. “Jamaica is synonymous with exceptional hospitality, world renowned culture and incredible beauty. We look forward to continuing to offer our participants a high quality program to engage with industry peers and promote travel to our region,” he said.
“I am very pleased to announce that Jamaica will once again play host to an important tourism event,” said Jamaica’s Minister of Tourism, Edmund Bartlett. “It is an incredible achievement for our country and I am certain we will reap significant benefits.”
In 2018, Caribbean Travel Marketplace, hosted by Puerto Rico, attracted 102 buyer companies from 20 countries. More than 1,000 delegates from 26 Caribbean countries participated in more than 9,800 pre-scheduled appointments.
