The seventh edition of the annual event that serves as Antigua & Barbuda’s leading travel trade show will be held 10-11 JUN 2020.  

The two-day ‘Showcase Antigua and Barbuda 2020’ is hosted by the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority and the Antigua and Barbuda Hotels and Tourist Association.  

In 2019, the event was held at the newly opened Royalton Resort, with an opening cocktail reception at historic Clarence House. 

This year’s location has yet to be determined, but will feature a similar format, designed to give attendees an in-depth look at the twin-island nation, sampling treats, taking in local arts and crafts at the Tourism Hospitality Booth and much more. 

Attendees, who are primarily tour operators, travel agent networks and tourism industry partners, will participate in meetings under a pre-scheduled appointment structure. Here, wholesalers and tour operators from around the world can meet and conduct business with regional suppliers in the tourism industry. 

Subject to availability, the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority will provide complimentary ground and air transportation, as well as the arrangement of accommodations, including an all-inclusive stay at the host hotel. 

Those interested in attending can contact the Tourism Authority at abtatourismca@visitAandB.com by 10JAN 2020.
