The 2020 Caribbean Travel Marketplace, at Baha Mar in The Bahamas, is now open for registration.

The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA), producers of the Caribbean’s largest and longest-standing tourism marketing event, has started its countdown for the 38th Marketplace, taking place January 21-23, 2020.

Caribbean Travel Marketplace gathers hotel and destination representatives as well as other tourism providers; wholesalers and tour operators; online travel agencies; along with media representatives for two intensive days of business meetings, including thousands of pre-scheduled appointments.

This marquee event will be held at Baha Mar’s Performing Arts and Convention Center, one of the newest and most impressive resorts in the Caribbean region. Collaborating in the meet-up are Baha Mar, Bahamas Hotel & Tourist Association (BHTA), Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board.

“We are looking forward to an incredible travel event in the Bahamas, that brings together all stakeholders and business prospects to one location,” stated Frank Comito, director general and chief executive officer of CHTA, who added the meeting will build on the success of the previous Marketplace in Jamaica, which attracted 148 buyers, 64 of which were new, including 18 new Chinese entrants.

Comito encourages suppliers and buyers to take advantage of the registration flash sale, through September 3, 2019.

Equity partner, Pictet Wealth Management, Alberto Valenzuela, paid a courtesy call on Minister of Financial Services, Trade, Industry and Immigration Elsworth Johnson at his office August 21, 2019.

Young Bahamians aged seven to 17 from Abaco, Eleuthera, Grand Bahama and New Providence spent the weekend engaged in sessions teaching them about cybersecurity, blockchain and the law, how to successfully raise capital and how to start a business in The Bahamas.
