Travel in Style Journeys by E. Clarke Travel will be an important partner in April 8-11th St. Martin / St. Maarten Annual Regional Tradeshow (SMART). This was announced today by the organizers of SMART in conjunction with the luxury travel specialist from the United States.

Amongst other cooperation’s, Travel in Style Journeys will bring travel agents to the tradeshow and assist with a contest for tickets to travel to the event in its luxurious airplane.

As of February 18th, luxury airliner La Compagnie will be operating from Newark to St. Maarten under the “Travel in Style Journeys” program run by E. Clarke Travel. The lavish Business Class Only seating operator will celebrate its maiden flight with an entourage of selected journalists and agents on board highlighting the destination and the opportunity to connect to the region at SMART.

Director Wahid Essafi, of high-end tour operator E. Clarke Travel, is elated about the cooperation. “St. Maarten / St. Martin and the surrounding islands as spokes to our new hub destination Princess Juliana International Airport (PJIA) are known for its offer of luxurious lodgings. The northeastern Caribbean region SMART serves to make a perfect combination with our targeted clientele of Travel In Style Journeys. We as E. Clarke Travel are looking forward to further expand connections in the region at SMART, and in turn contribute to the northeastern tourism product in the process”.

SMART 2024 opened its Early Bird Registration last week. Tourism businesses and those serving the industry are invited to join the principal tradeshow of the northeastern Caribbean to connect to tourism firms foreign and domestic.

Its 16th edition 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 de 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.

Lower Early Bird Prices apply until February 28th. As SMARTs previous edition was wholly sold out, organizers are encouraged to ensure a spot on the tradeshow floor within this timeframe.

Interested parties can take up contact as of today with the SMART team at 1-721-542-0108 or or find booking and lodging information at
