WILLEMSTAD–The Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) and several private-sector partners recently participated in the New York Times Travel Show, the largest of its kind in North America, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

This 17th edition attracted 35,568 attendees, including 11,750 from the commercial travel industry and another 23,000 who enjoyed more than 747 organisations from 176 different countries exhibiting their destination and products. Visitors were able to get a closer look at both domestic and international destinations.

CTB gave a presentation, informing the members of the press and travel agents on the different festivals and other activities featured on the island’s events calendar.
