The Antigua Hotels and Tourist Association in collaboration with the Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority will be presenting the seventh annual “Showcase Antigua Barbuda” on June 10th and 11th, 2020. . 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 Leeward Islands.  These include Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Montserrat, Sint Maarten, St. Barthelemy, St. Kitts & Nevis.

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: ahta@candw.ag

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”.
