Haiti Tech Summit- Launches The Tourism Ecosystem Collective- Summit attendees can now book hotels within 30 minutes of event venue

[June 8, 2018 Port Au Prince, Haiti] – Haiti Tech Summit- a 13 year initiative to accelerate economic development via tech is back for its second year. In its first year, the summit welcomed 100 global speakers and 500 participants. For its second year the program will welcome 750 participants. Due to demand, the summit’s hotel package offerings at Royal Decameron sold out as of June 1st. Instead of focusing on just local sales for the remaining summit seats, the organization is now tapping into the local hotels to further encourage more international tourism flow into the country- further solidifying its role in accelerating economic development within the tourism sector.

To do this, summit attendees can now book hotels within 30 minutes of event venue once spots fill up at Royal Decameron. Similar to the large economic impact of international events like SXSW in Austin Texas, USA or Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal- events that drive thousands of internationals into a city- Haiti Tech Summit aims to repeat the same success over the next few years. Expansion to hotels in Port au Prince and other main cities will be made each year.

While partnership agreements are not completely final, the organization is soft launching its recommendation of the top 3 hotels that are available for booking. Tickets to access the event on June 21-23, 2018 are here.
