FAQ

What type of booth structure is provided and are there any restrictions in terms of size?

Booths are pipe and drape, with 3 foot high dividers between booths. Posters are acceptable to hang on the booth walls. Please bring tape to hang your posters. If you have a pre-built booth, side walls must not extend more than 3 feet from the back of the booth, as this will obstruct the view of neighboring booths and should not be higher than 8 feet. Displays in the aisle or in front of your booth are not allowed. Booth Headers must not be removed.

Can I Request a Special Location for my Booth?

Supplier booth locations are assigned by country based on your address if your registration is received prior to December 1st. Request for special location must be indicated at the time of registration.

If there is a special group of companies or hotel that you would like to be located with, the request must be made mutually by each organization and the request should be listed on your registration form. CHTA cannot guarantee booth placement requests.

When can I Set Up my Booth? And Tear It Down?

The hours for exhibit set-up are indicated in the schedule of events. All booths must be completely set-up by 5:00 p.m. on the Opening day. Booth teardown is from 4:30 p.m. on the final day.

As the business atmosphere must be maintained throughout Caribbean Travel Marketplace, booth tear-down is not allowed until after 4:30 p.m. on the final day.

HOTEL, VILLA & CONDO/TIMESHARE MEMBERSHIP


CHTA understands that operating a hotel, a villa or a condo/timeshare property is about far more than a comfortable night’s sleep for your guests. It is about Business Management, Advocacy and Marketing within multi-intra islands as well as International. Our association is about what happens behind the scenes – what will make your establishment run smoother, be more cost-effective, and grow your profits. CHTA members have inside access to the key players and resources that drive the lodging industry, and benefit from a network of likeminded executives. While we encourage the primary contact to be the general manager or property owner, our host of benefits transcends marketing, human resources, sales, food & beverage, and other departments. For this reason, we entitle the primary member to appoint other internal associates to also receive the full benefits of CHTA membership. This means that for one price, individuals can take advantage of all the events, educational resources, and communications we offer. Discounts are offered only to CHTA card members.
