To know the details of the show we have been able to interview Fernando Harb, who serves as Senior Director of Sales.

The objective is to combine operators from the United States, Caribbean, Canada and Central America with buyers First-level internationals, although the mother company has a history of almost 25 years in the event market, Connect Travel Marketplace began in 2018. The first edition has been small, the second has doubled the numbers of the first and this third has also managed to double last year's event. "
"We work with a concept different from most trade events. The buyers remain at a desk and it is the suppliers who turn around the room to hold the meetings. The buyer is invited with all payment, but the condition is that they deposit a bond before starting to reintegrate those who have complied with the entire agreed agenda, that ensures the success of the show.We guarantee a minimum of 40 appointments.There are people who have had up to 52. In addition, those who truly make decisions must participate. the supplier can choose who to meet. Another aspect to note is that we have significantly cheaper costs than other trade events. "
"250 operators and more than 300 suppliers have participated. But there are operators that come with more than 3 participants. The suppliers also arrive with several officials."
