CHTA MARKETPLACE 2018 PROMISES STEADY BUSINESS FOR LOCAL TOURISM SECTOR
Published on April 2, 2018

THE Barbados delegation which attended the CHTA Marketplace 2018 in San Juan, Puerto Rico recently, returned home extremely satisfied with the outcome of the event.

 

More than 20 member companies of the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA) participated and Chairman Roseanne Myers was impressed with how the individual properties and companies continued to proactively promote their own products and services at such major events.

Noting that Barbados continues to be a premier destination of world-class standing she said, “We had an intense two days of meetings with tour operators, wholesalers and airlines and based on the feedback, we anticipate that our members can expect business to hold steady this year with the possibility of an overall increase.”

However, Myers cautioned that while the future looked promising, it was extremely important for Barbados to focus on such challenging areas as the experience of visitors arriving at the airport and the wastewater management issues on the south coast which, in their different ways, can negatively impact our tourism industry.

The CHTA Marketplace is one of the Caribbean’s leading tourism conferences and is attended by suppliers, buyers and media personnel. It was held at the Puerto Rico Convention Center and the Barbados delegation included officials from the BHTA, the Ministry of Tourism, the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (BTMI), the Barbados Tourism Product Authority (BTPA). The BHTA members present were predominantly hotels.
