Registrations for the Saint Martin / Sint Maarten Annual Regional Tradeshow (SMART) have now exceeded 100 companies, passing by the event’s last two editions in 2015 and 2017.

This was announced today by the four organizing partners, L’Association des Hoteliers de Saint-Martin, the Saint-Martin Tourism Office, the Sint-Maarten Tourist Bureau and the Sint-Maarten Hospitality and Trade Association.
