Prepared in association with the Antigua Hotels and Tourist Association and the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, the annual business development event, presents one full day of pre-scheduled appointment sessions and activities with wholesalers and tour operators across the globe to carry out business with regional suppliers related to the tourism industry.
Antigua and Barbuda Tourism officials are planning for an official meeting and surprise the buyers who by sending their clients to Antigua and Barbuda bring big business to the destination.
To quote Asot Michael, Tourism Minister, ‘Showcase Antigua Barbuda is an opportunity for the destination and our suppliers to impact sales to Antigua and Barbuda from the main source markets in the US, UK and Europe and to grow regional business by highlighting our position as an airline hub. The event is extremely beneficial to our unique, boutique properties who may not always attend the major travel shows to make contact with buyers looking for the smaller, indigenous properties, and to take advantage of opportunities available in this niche.”
Buyers have made their registration to include brands like JetBlue Vacations, American Airlines Vacations, British Airways Holidays, Virgin Holidays, Kenwood Travel, Lusso, Blue Bay Travel Ltd, Air Canada Vacations, West Jet Vacations, Etnia Viaggi, CheapCaribbean.com, Expedia and Booking.com respectively.
