Dominican Republic: Asonahores Trade Exhibit

lujo1

The National Hotel and Restaurant Association Trade Exhibit opened today at the Convention Center of the Dominican Fiesta Hotel & Casino, in Santo Domingo, an event which is recognized as one of the region’s most important trade fairs, given tourism’s importance to Dominican Republic’s economy. This is the leading Dominican hotel industry trade exhibition with the participation of suppliers to the industry. [Asonahores stands for Asociación Nacional de Hoteles y Restaurantes.]

I found this item interesting because this year, the topics of discussion on the trade exhibit’s program— besides the more commonly expected presentations on new pastry techniques, trends in Dominican gastronomy, wine-tasting, and outsourcing payroll— include talks on solar energy, power and water solutions, and sustainable tourism programs, important topics if action follows dialogue.
