Cuba has attracted over two million travelers in the first six months of this year, an almost 12 percent increase over 2015 figures.
CHTA officials have presented a paper in Washington DC urging the creation of a Caribbean-US public-private sector dialogue and a joint action agenda.
The Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association (CHTA) recently elected a new slate of officers at its Annual General Meeting (AGM), which took place at the Hyatt Regency Miami on June 9, 2016.
CHTA is urging Aruba's government to eliminate proposed legislation that would limit and control the growth of all-inclusive hotels on the island.
The strategic partnership will see CHTA collaborate with SiteMinder to strengthen knowledge and innovation within the region’s hotels, namely via educational sessions at the Caribbean Hospitality Industry Exchange Forum (CHIEF) and Caribbean Travel Marketplace, joint webinars, and educational resources sharing industry best practices and trends.
