Barbados will become the first destination to host the Millennial Travel Forum (MTF) when it kicks off MTF: Barbados in just under two weeks.
The event, taking place December 12 – 16, features 15 successful Millennial agents who were invited by travAlliancemedia and ultimately selected by the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (BTMI) after an approval process.
“Being the first destination to host the MTF underpins the importance Barbados places in the Millennial segment, a segment that is growing exponentially and which represents an essential investment for future business,” said Petra Roach, U.S. director of the BTMI.
