The American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) has announced that it will hold its 2011 International Destination Expo (IDE) in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Working in conjunction with ASTA’s Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands chapters, along with the Puerto Rico Tourism Company, the conference will also offer travel expert destination certification pre- and post-tours throughout Puerto Rico.
“The IDE is the only industry event dedicated to destination training,” said ASTA’s CEO, William Maloney. “Attendees will have the chance to experience firsthand the exciting tourism attractions Puerto Rico has to offer.”
Daphne Barbeito, ASTA chapter president for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands added, “This is a great opportunity for Puerto Rico and the Caribbean to position themselves as one of the primary destinations in the Americas. It also gives us a chance to come together as an industry and as people to show our visitors the best our region and has to offer.”
