NEW YORK, NY. May 10, 2017 – Travel and tourism suppliers, agents and distributors will come together at the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s (CTO) Trade Show and Educational Forum for Travel Agents as part of Caribbean Week New York. The event will take place Tuesday, June 6, 2017, from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Wyndham New Yorker Hotel (481 Eighth Avenue).

Themed “Selling the Romantic Caribbean,” the highly anticipated event will show why the Caribbean is the premier region for honeymoons, weddings and romantic getaways. The event is designed to give suppliers and destination representatives the opportunity to highlight what is special about their product and share relevant information, tips and trends with travel agents who work with leading tour operators with a heavy concentration on Caribbean travel.

Further solidifying the importance of this event for both agents and suppliers, more than 140 qualified travel agents from databases of the top-producing tour operators for Caribbean travel have registered for the event, exceeding the initial target of 120. Due to spacing and to keep the intimacy and integrity of the event, additional requests from travel agents to attend are being waitlisted.

“With over 30 countries to choose from and the allure of pristine beaches, intimate accommodations, myriad land and water activities, luxurious spa treatments and unparalleled service, the Caribbean is the ideal destination for travelers looking to celebrate their love,” said Sylma Brown-Bramble, Director, CTO-USA. She added, “During the Trade Show and Educational Forum, public and private sector exhibitors will showcase why the Caribbean region remains the leading warm-weather destination for romantic escapes.”

The CTO recognizes the importance of keeping retailers up-to-date with the region’s current offerings due to their significant role in driving business and increasing sales to the Caribbean, and the Trade Show and Educational Forum is one of the many ways to do so.

“Judging by their enthusiasm to register, travel agents look forward to receiving exclusive insight and tools from industry experts which they can use to sell Caribbean vacations to their clients,” said Brown-Bramble. “We encourage suppliers to register for this high demand event to network with travel agents and ultimately, keep their product at the forefront.”

Participation fees for exhibitors are $995 for two representatives and $550 for small hotels (under 50 rooms). Delta Air Lines is the event’s exclusive airline sponsor.
