Get Responsible with CHTA

The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) will launch the inaugural Marketplace Responsible Tourism Day during this year’s Caribbean Travel Marketplace, set to take place on May 23 in Jamaica.

The groundbreaking activities are dedicated to promoting sustainable tourism development with a special focus on giving back to local communities in Jamaica.

“I am truly excited about this year’s inaugural Marketplace Responsible Tourism Day,” said Nicola Madden-Greig, President of CHTA, who added it is a further step in the association’s focus to transform its annual trade show.

Madden-Greig explained that in 2022 CHTA debuted the Caribbean Travel Forum, focusing on the business of tourism, and this new event allows the industry to work together on sustainable initiatives.

“Delegates can build relationships that lead to more integrated and cooperative approaches to tourism development, which includes environmentally sustainable, economically beneficial, and culturally respectful practices in the travel industry,” she said.

Marketplace Responsible Tourism Day will bring together delegates from various sectors such as tourism professionals, government representatives and other travel industry stakeholders. They will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of activities and make a positive impact on the local communities while fostering sustainable tourism practices.

Caribbean Travel Marketplace, to be held May 20-23 in Montego Bay, is the premier event for connecting suppliers of Caribbean travel products and services with global buyers. This year’s event promises to be a dynamic platform for networking, collaboration and highlighting the diverse offerings of the Caribbean hospitality and tourism sector.
