The Caribbean Hotel & Resort Investment Summit (CHRIS) is one of the region’s key hotel and tourism investment conferences. This year’s edition was staged in Miami over the past two days.
The event offered an opportunity for investors, financiers and representatives from hotels, resorts, trade associations and destinations to network and learn more about the outlook for the region’s travel and tourism industry, which from all indications is bright.
