St Maarten gears up for regional trade show
Published on April 16, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

PHILIPSBURG, St Maarten -- Travel industry partners, including suppliers, buyers and media advertisers as well as wholesale travel agents, are gearing up for the 13th annual St Maarten Annual Regional Trade Show (SMART 2014), taking place May 14 - 16, 2014, on French St Martin.

L'Association des Hoteliers de St Martin and the St Maarten Hospitality and Trade Association in conjunction with L'Office du Tourisme de St Martin and the St Maarten Tourist Bureau expect numerous tour operators, travel agents, travel writers and event planners from across the US, Canada, Europe and Latin America to return to the island for SMART 2014, which provides a unique opportunity for local and regional hoteliers and activity providers to present their product, network and negotiate prospective business opportunities.

SMART 2014 kicks-off on Wednesday May 14, 2014, when delegates have the opportunity to meet and mingle with their peers at the welcome reception. Business appointments will take place on May 15, followed by a farewell party that evening.

After years of success and progress, and with islands attending this event such as Anguilla, Antigua, Barbuda, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Montserrat, Saba, St Barth's, Statia, St Kitts and Nevis and Barbados, SMART has become a significant event for the entire region.
