The Antigua Hotels and Tourist Association in collaboration with the Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority will be presenting the fifth annual “Showcase Antigua Barbuda ” on Thursday 14th June 2018 at the Starfish Jolly Beach Resort. This event provides one full day of pre-scheduled appointment sessions and activities where Wholesalers and Tour Operators from around the world can meet and conduct business with regional Suppliers in the tourism industry.
Showcase Antigua Barbuda will include Suppliers from the Islands of the North Leewards Islands. These include Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Montserrat, Sint Maarten, St. Barthelemy, St. Kitts & Nevis.
How does Showcase Antigua Barbuda work? – Participants will receive a Directory including marketing profiles and product information on all participating buyers & suppliers, along with appointment request forms. Once received, supplier delegates should review the information and request appointments with those buyers companies they wish to meet. Since appointments are only scheduled through buyer requests and perfect matches, suppliers are encouraged to make advance contact with buyers they are interested in meeting. Appointments are arranged in advance through computer matching of pre-scheduled appointments requests received from buyers and suppliers. Appointments may also be scheduled on-site during the “Scheduling Sessions”.
