Building on the success of its 2019 training initiatives, the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association Education Foundation (CHTAEF) is planning to expand its hospitality training programs and scholarship support in the Caribbean in 2020.
The annual New York Times Travel Show fundraising drive saw strong support, for which CHTA member hotels and resorts generously donated stays for auction. Officials report that they can now prepare to roll out professional development and training programs and award scholarships for current and future tourism professionals.
According to CHTAEF Chairperson Karolin Troubetzkoy, the foundation reached more than 750 hospitality professionals in Barbados, Grenada, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Maarten and Tobago through its on-island training courses.
“The feedback from our colleagues who participated in these trainings was phenomenal, and we look forward to delivering more training in other destinations in 2020,” Troubetzkoy said.
