This week, the St. Martin / St. Maarten Annual Regional Tradeshow (SMART) 2024 opened its Early Bird Registration. Tourism businesses and those serving the industry are invited to join the principal tradeshow of the Northeastern Caribbean to connect tourism firms foreign and domestic. Lower Early Bird prices apply until February 29th. As SMARTs previous edition was wholly sold out, organizers encourage to ensure a spot on the tradeshow floor within this timeframe. 

SMART will be held this April 8th to 11th at Sonesta Maho Beach Resort. The tradeshow is traditionally organized by the Sint Maarten Tourism Bureau, St. Maarten Hospitality & Trade Association (SHTA), the Office du Tourisme de St. Martin and the Club du Tourisme. 

The event is the largest travel platform in the Northeastern Caribbean for foreign tour operators, OTA’s and travel agents to do business with local hoteliers, DMC’s and excursions. In addition, the presence of many large regional hotels and companies attracts further interested companies from the region and beyond, serving the region’s main industry.

The 2024 edition of this two decades old event has been thoroughly revised in its set-up, adding more experience to the visiting guests. This 16th edition, the most dynamic and largest thus far, will consist of 3.5 days of inspiring experiences, activities, festivities, site inspections and business to business appointments.

SMART once again is expecting numerous Tour Operators, Travel Agents, Travel Writers and Event Planners from the US, Canada, Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean to attend this important event. In previous years, SMART featured businesses from Anguilla, Antigua, the Bahamas, Belgium, Bonaire, Canada, Curacao, Dominica, Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Guadeloupe, Italy, Montserrat, the Netherlands, Panama, Puerto-Rico, Saba, St. Barths, St. Eustatius, St. Martin, St. Maarten, St. Kitts, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

As the previous edition was fully booked, it is highly recommended to make use of the early bird registration and to select a strategic spot of choice on the event floor plan.
