The premier Caribbean travel conference kicks off this week in Puerto Rico.
The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association’s Caribbean Travel Marketplace is back in person for the first time since the start of 2020, bringing together buyers and suppliers from around the world at the Puerto Rico Convention Center.
It’s a strong reminder of the broad revival of tourism in the Caribbean since the pandemic, with many destinations in the region approaching or eclipsing what had been tourism records in 2019.
And it’s also a show of support for Puerto Rico, which is still recovering from Hurricane Fiona and for whom the event is an injection of much-needed attention and tourism revenue.
Billed as the region’s “largest tourism marketing event,” Marketplace, as it’s affectionately known, is welcoming nearly 1,200 delegates to Puerto Rico’s capital this week.
“This year’s CHTA Marketplace already appears to be a turning point for tourism in the Caribbean,” said Arlene Friday, CEO of the Grenada Hotel and Tourism Association. “Our businesses look forward to collaborating, networking and growing tourism with everyone here.”
