Cuba delegation set for 2015 World Travel Market in London

Cuba will be represented in the upcoming World Travel Market (WTM) tourism fair. This international event will take place between November 3rd and 6th and brings together stakeholders in the tourism industry from different parts of the world. Participants stand to benefit by broadening their networks and acquiring new contacts and also securing deals that will expand their existing operations.

Delegations from 186 countries are expected to converge in London for this purpose and there will be more than 3,000 attendees from various media houses present to cover proceedings in the course of the 4-day event. All in all over 50,000 professionals associated with the tourism and travel industries will be at WTM. Last year over £2.5 billion worth of travel deals were done at the event so this year's event represents an incredible opportunity for everyone involved.

The Cuban delegation, headed by Manuel Marrero, the country's tourism minister, has been allocated a space of 150 square meters in which to set up its stand. There to market their offerings will be representatives from the Gran Caribe, Cubanacan, Gaviota, Iberostar, Melia Hotels International and a host of other renowned hotel chains in Cuba. A number of travel agencies including Gaviotatours and the Palmares Group will also have representation in Cuba's CA140 stand.

Among the multifaceted attractions Cuba will be showcasing are adventure travel, activity holidays, health tourism, luxury travel, eco –tourism, sun-and-sand holidays, scuba-diving holidays, cruises and its renowned historical and cultural treasures. The Cuba team will also be seeking to promote such events as the 31st edition of the Jazz Plaza International.

In this vein they will also be highlighting the wonders of the Jardines del Rey archipelago on Cuba's northern coastline. This will be where FitCuba 2016 will be held between 5th and 7th May. It is an event in which numerous invitees from around the world come to take part in a selection of exciting nautical activities.

The participation of Cuban in the 2015 WTM is yet another step in opening up the country for business with the West. Trade relations with the UK have been on the upswing ever since the visit of the recent visit of Hugo Swire, Great Britain's deputy foreign minister.
