PRNewswire NEW YORK Dec. 1 :
In the face of growing competitive forces and an uneven global economic
recovery, the sixth annual Caribbean Gaming & Hospitality Conference will
turn its focus to “Managing for Excellence.” The conference, which is
scheduled for June 8-9, at the Caribe Hilton Hotel in San Juan, Puerto
Rico, is the only educational forum for gaming and hospitality businesses
operating in the Caribbean and Central and South America.
“Even though the global recovery is uneven, Caribbean-bound travel has
stabilized and so has the U.S. economic outlook,” says Bruce R. Smith,
conference founder and president of WestVille Enterprises, Inc. “So this
is the ideal moment to address key marketing and management decisions that
can capture new business as well as new discretionary dollars. The
foundation that managers lay down today,” says Smith, “is going to impact
the bottom line for a long time to come.”
With the help of top industry consultants and leaders, attendees at this
year`s Caribbean Gaming and Hospitality Conference will benefit from
seminar-based opportunities to evaluate their policies and programs
against case history data, new industry research, and the unique input
from peer-to-peer networking. “Each speaker and each seminar will give
managers another tool to help generate revenues, profits, and overall
operating excellence,” says Smith.
All sessions will offer simultaneous English-Spanish translation. Exhibits
will feature the latest gaming and hospitality equipment as well as
information systems and other services.
Ensuring the widest attendance possible, WestVille Enterprises is offering
a pre-Early Bird registration discount for attendees who register and pay
in full before December 31. Team discount rates are available to companies
and government agencies signing up multiple registrants. In addition, the
program`s efficient, two-day schedule affords attendees valuable seminar
and networking time without taking a third day out of their schedules.
“As always, we thank our loyal sponsors who believe in the importance of a
conference designed just for the Caribbean gaming and hospitality
industry,” says Smith. “They know that it`s the best place to do business
in the region.” For the sixth year in a row Aristocrat Technologies Inc.,
