100+ reps from the Caribbean

Now in its 26th year, the popular event has grown exponentially. More than 100 representatives from around the world are flying in from Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Jamaica, and more to provide details on their cruise lines, destinations and all-inclusive resorts. “It’s such an exciting atmosphere. You can literally shop the entire world under one roof,” says Blair Jerrett, senior director of marketing. “The deals on cruises and all-inclusive packages are incredible, and we’ve added new areas for worldwide adventure travel and river cruising – two of the hottest travel trends.”

There are five presentation rooms with simultaneous discovery sessions throughout both days. Everyone who comes through the door qualifies for a selection of trip prizes to be drawn for after the event.
