Barbados to Host 2016 Caribbean Meeting & Incentive Travel Exchange

Next year's Caribbean Meeting & Incentive Travel Exchange will be held August 29-September 1 at the Hilton Barbados Resort, hosted by the Barbados Tourism Marketing Incand supported by Sunlinc, a destination management company.

CMITE, organized by Questex Travel Group (the parent company of International Meetings Review) in partnership with SITE, the Society for Incentive Travel Excellence, brings hosted North American meeting planners and incentive buyers together with Caribbean suppliers for two and a half days of exclusive networking opportunities and prescheduled one-to-one meetings in luxury suites.

Marilyn McHugh, Questex Travel Group vice president of global events, and Petra Roach, director of the U.S. for the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc., made the announcement at this year's event, currently underway at the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. 

Roach said her organization has identified the meetings and incentive markets as the island's "key pillars" for growth. "Hosting 65 of the top U.S buyers on the island lends us the perfect platform to showcase the renowned hospitality, sights and sounds that Barbados has to offer," she said in a statement, noting additional service by Delta and JetBlue airlines and newly opened resorts.

The Hilton Barbados Resort is located on the beach at Needham's Point in Bridgetown. The resort was constructed on the site of the 17th century Fort Charles, part of the UNESCO World Heritage list. Visitors can explore the original cannons and walls of the fort.

CMITE is part of the Global Meeting & Incentive Travel Exchanges (GMITE) portfolio of events, all of which feature one-to-one meetings and top-of-the-line training and networking opportunities for meeting and event-planning professionals and incentive buyers.
