CHIEFTwo of the Caribbean’s premier tourism events will be staged concurrently in June in Miami during Caribbean-American Heritage Month.

The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) announced that the Caribbean Hotel Industry Exchange Forum (CHIEF), usually held in autumn, will now take place during the first week of June alongside the popular Taste of the Caribbean culinary competition.

CHIEF will be held from June 2-4, 2017, while Taste of the Caribbean is slated for June 2-6. Both events will be held at the Hyatt Regency Miami.

“CHIEF brings together the right information, the right people at the right time – and by producing this event in Miami we expect many more Caribbean stakeholders to benefit from the educational sessions and invaluable peer-to-peer exchange,” said Bill Clegg, chairperson of CHTA’s Membership Committee and CHIEF’s programme chair.

CHIEF incorporates a variety of educational tracks led by experts from many travel, tourism and hospitality industry segments, and features roundtable panels with one-on-one discussions on environmental sustainability, operations, sales and marketing, and technology.

Taste of the Caribbean, the region’s premier culinary competition and cultural showcase, also provides a forum for gathering practical information, developing skills, sampling, purchasing, strengthening supplier relationships and meeting new vendors. One goal of the popular event is to help attendees build food and beverage business and yield bottom line benefits.

The 2017 edition of Taste of the Caribbean will also bring innovative educational sessions for food and beverage professionals that promise to enhance individual skills, and will feature a major consumer component soon to be unveiled.

The Bahamas Financial Services Board hosted its 14th International Business & Finance Summit 2017 at Lighthouse Pointe, Grand Lucayan Resort, Grand Bahama January 26-28, 2017 under the theme “Financial Services: Responding to Change through Innovation”. Read a review of the event here.

Minister of State for Investments Khaalis Rolle welcomed local and international participants, presenters, organisers and stakeholders, to the United Nations Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Symposium being held in The Bahamas this week.
