The sixth annual Discover Puerto Plata MarketPlace Fair will take place from October 4 to 6 of this year at the Blue JackTar Hotel in Playa Dorada, the beautiful resort situated in Puerto Plata, in the country’s north coast.
This important tourism event is organized by the Tourism Cluster of Puerto Plata and sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism.
All scheduled business meetings will take place for the first time in the Playa Dorada Resort, the country’s first tourism resort which first opened in the 1980s.
The theme of this year’s Fair will be sustainable tourism, in support of the World Tourism Organization’s drive to build and strengthen a more responsible and committed tourism sector.
The Fair brings together all tourism sectors, including tour operators and travel agencies.
During the fair dozens of meetings take place between tourism-service providers and potential customers.
During 2016 the number of tourists visiting Puerto Plata experienced a healthy 11% jump.
