Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association
Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association's (CHTA) mission is to optimize the full potential of the Caribbean hotel & tourism industry by serving member needs and building partnerships.
The members of CHTA represent the entire spectrum of the hospitality industry's private sector. Some 849 member hotels in 36 national hotel associations represent approximately 125,476 rooms in the Caribbean, from the small guest houses to the mega-resorts. The allied members: airlines, tour wholesalers and travel agents, trade and consumer press, advertising and public relations agencies, and hotel and restaurants suppliers, among many, account for more than 536 members.
The understanding that the industry must join forces to be more effective led CHTA to the development over the years of a number of programs. Among them:
Caribbean Marketplace is recognized as the most important tourism-marketing event of the year for the Caribbean region.
Caribbeantravel.com - the most comprehensive regional online resource to find out about Caribbean destinations and hotels
Taste of the Caribbean Culinary Competition - encouraging and rewarding excellence in the food and beverage sector of hospitality at an annual, fast-paced competition for individual chefs, culinary teams and barmen from across the islands.
CHTA Education Foundation - raising funds to Caribbean nationals to further their careers in all aspects of the hospitality industry
CHIEF – the Caribbean’s largest educational forum, bringing together the most innovative and knowledgeable experts in the industry for three days filled with game-changing information.
