The Caribbean’s best educational forum is back! The Caribbean Hospitality Industry Exchange Forum (CHIEF) will be held June 2-4 at the Hyatt Regency in Miami, Florida, and this year, it’s more accessible than ever. The forum will take place in conjunction with the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association’s Taste of the Caribbean competition occurring June 2-6 to make attendance to both events even easier!
“CHIEF brings together the right information, the right people at the right time, and by producing this event in Miami, we expect many more Caribbean stakeholders to benefit from the educational sessions and invaluable peer-to-peer exchange,” said Bill Clegg, Chairperson of CHTA’s Membership Committee who also serves as CHIEF’s program chair.
CHIEF attendees will learn best practices from the best in the Caribbean and beyond, share and brainstorm creative solutions to current challenges with the industry, and build relationships with industry leaders, innovative vendors and valued peers. CHIEF incorporates a variety of educational tracks led by experts from many travel, tourism and hospitality industry segments, and features roundtable panels with one-on-one discussions on environmental sustainability, operations, sales and marketing and technology.
Taste of the Caribbean, the region’s premier culinary competition and cultural showcase, also provides a forum for gathering practical information, developing skills, sampling, purchasing, strengthening supplier relationships and meeting new vendors. One goal of the popular event is to help attendees build food and beverage business and yield bottom line benefits.
We at USVIHTA are excited for both of these events and the amazing opportunities available to attendees.
