As one of the delegates, Matthias Winkler, Principal of FSC Architects, was able to discuss firsthand with other attendees the opportunities and new directions for resort design in the Caribbean.

One of the premier discussion and networking forums in the Caribbean CHICOS 2019 had a record-breaking attendance of 325 delegates from Mexico to Barbados. Apple Leisure Group as the host with its wonderful Secrets Wild Orchid Resort went all out to show off the splendor that Jamaica has to offer: from a breath-taking immersion into Jamaican food and music at the opening reception to the all-around attentive and welcoming resort team – it’s a true hospitality nation.

Active discussions showed the continuing large potential for the region. With RevPAR growing in numerous destinations the significant amount of capital that has been invested is showing its fruit. The all-inclusive sector is maintaining its strength and potential while new large players like Marriott and Hilton entering the arena. As visitor arrivals have been going up the opportunities for new and elevated guest experiences are on the rise.

A big thanks to Parris Jordan, HVS, for an impeccably planned, organized and executed event again! We are looking forward to CHICOS 2020 in the Bahamas!
