HFTP Conference Addresses Important Caribbean Issues
"During these rough times in the economy and our industry it is important to focus on education," said Jules Sieburgh, CHTP, president of HFTP and consultant with O'Neal Consultants. "Regional conferences like this offer a wealth of knowledge and networking as attendees share their challenges and insight with each other."
Aligning with the interests of Caribbean hospitality industry professionals, the education program addressed timely topics that covered Caribbean travel and tourism trends, how to maximize existing technology and upgrades, operation internal controls and more. Edmund Bartlett, Jamaica's minister of tourism, welcomed attendees to the conference and Jamaica during the Welcome Reception. He expressed appreciation towards hospitality professionals and their importance to Jamaica's tourism infrastructure.
Along with the education sessions, attendees visited with exhibitors at tabletop displays and networked with colleagues. "The Caribbean Conference was a great opportunity to meet individuals specifically involved in Caribbean hospitality industry," said Bob Thye, consultant with RPT Consulting Group and conference attendee.
