The Trade Show is the premier annual event for the US travel and tourism industry and will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center September 13 to 15, 2009.
A Cuba destination seminar, “Cuba Breakthrough: Opportunities for the US Travel Industry” will be offered for the second year. It will be in the Caribbean area of the trade show on September 13 from noon to 1:30pm. The organizers did not have enough room for all those who wished to attend.
