The St. Maarten Hospitality & Trade Association and L’Association des Hoteliers de St. Martin in conjunction with the St. Maarten Tourist Bureau and L’Office du Tourisme de St. Martin are proud to once again host the SMART tradeshow. SMART is a unique trade show where local and regional hoteliers and activity programs promote their offerings to global tourism bookers and media. These four event organizers have gained an immense opportunity to host the event because the travel professionals who attend it are positioned to drive future visitor bookings to the St. Maarten/ St. Martin.

The private-public partnership of the local Hotel Associations and Tourism Bureaus are charged with promoting the local tourism and encouraging the Islands of the North Eastern Caribbean region to participate in this event. Of which provides the opportunity for local hoteliers and activities to present their tourism product, network and negotiate prospective business opportunities. These islands include: Anguilla, Antigua, Barbuda, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Montserrat, Saba, St. Barthelemy, St. Eustatius, St. Kitts & Nevis, Barbados, St. Maarten and St. Martin.

SMART tradeshow commences with an opening party at the host hotel, the Westin Dawn Beach Resort & Spa on May 25th 2011, followed by one full day of pre-scheduled appointments and activities.
