Puerto Rico's Group Business Off to Great Start to 2015

According to Meet Puerto Rico, 46 groups are in Puerto Rico for January for their meeting, incentive or convention, generating a total of 19,062 hotel nights and a contribution of $10.6 million to the economy.

Groups include the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association Travel Marketplace, the International Financial Cryptography Association, Public Health Law Research Conference and the Oakley 2015 Retail Assault.

"We are on a tropical island, in the Caribbean, so we are able to welcome groups all year round. The average year-round temperature is a balmy 82º F (28º C), with mild easterly trade winds. Most days are sunny and stunning," said Milton Segarra, president and CEO of Meet Puerto Rico, in a written release. “In addition, Puerto Rico has everything to make a successful meeting or convention - including a state-of-the-art convention center, prime hotels and infrastructure. Moreover, we are part of the U.S. and so do not require a passport, use U.S. currency and work within all of the U.S. laws governing meetings and travel.”

Group experiences include trips to Old San Juan, the Bacardi Rum Factory, El Yunque Rainforest, the bio bay and zip lining, haciendas and private islands, among other offerings.
