The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority with the Antigua Hotels and Tourist Association is hosting the third annual “Showcase Antigua Barbuda,’ on Saturday, the 21st of May 2016 in St. John’s, Antigua, with registration and welcome reception on the 20th of May. This is following upon the previous two successful years for the travel industry business-to-business event. The Antigua Barbuda Showcase is an intensive meeting and informational event for wholesalers and tour operators from around the world to meet with regional suppliers of the North Leewards Islands tourism industry. In addition to featuring local suppliers from Antigua and Barbuda, the event will include suppliers from Dominica, Guadeloupe, Montserrat, St. Barthelemy, St. Kitts and Nevis.
Showcase Antigua and Barbuda attracts over 50 major tour operators from North America, Europe and the United Kingdom, providing an amazing opportunity for tour operators worldwide to converge, discuss business partnerships directly with hotel owners from the region. The logistics of the showcase are simple: participants will receive a directory including marketing profiles and product information on all participating buyers and suppliers, along with appointment request forms. Once received, suppliers and delegates should review the information and request appointments with those buyers and companies they wish to meet. As appointments are only scheduled through buyer requests and matches, suppliers are encouraged to make contact with buyers they are interested in meeting beforehand. Appointments may also be scheduled on-site.
In addition to meetings, suppliers are given the opportunity to share their information with all of the participants through registering for booths, with both single and double tabletop registration available. Registration includes delegate registration, tabletop and signage, listing in the directory, appointments and attendance to all food and social functions by delegates.
The main focus of the Showcase is to schedule important face-to-face meetings between buyers and suppliers, therefore, everyone is encouraged to register as soon as possible so as to begin communications beforehand.
