Barbados is set to welcome hundreds of visitors to the island, for the 41st staging of the Caribbean Travel Marketplace, starting tomorrow (May 9).

The Caribbean Hotel andTourism Association (CHTA) will host the industry-leading event on the island from May 9-11.

On the first evening, Prime Minister Mottley will kick off events with a keynote address at Sandals Royal Barbados under the topic, Tourism: The Key Driver of Generational Wealth for Caribbean Nationals.

The Caribbean Travel Forum will feature discussions on timely topics such as multi-destination marketing, intra-Caribbean travel with an emphasis on air connectivity, sustainability, technology innovation, labor market concerns, taxation, and tourism linkages.

The three-day event will be used to encourage travel industry leaders, general managers, thought leaders, and government officials to use the Caribbean Travel Marketplace, which Barbados is hosting for the first time, to showcase the Caribbean region’s strengths, resilience, and attractiveness to global buyers, media, and potential investors.
