How does Showcase Antigua Barbuda work?  – Each year, Showcase Antigua Barbuda has grown, and with growth come changes and challenges.  To ensure that participants can have a wonderful experience and ease of. comfort from registration to the day of the event, we have made the following changes:

Buyers registration is FREE.  If there is one or more buyers representing a company, and will be meeting as a group with Suppliers, a primary person should register to receive the appointment schedule, while the other individuals send their names for accreditation purposes and to be counted in the attendance numbers to: abhta@antiguahotels.org

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”.
