The international event is scheduled to hold from the 14th November to the 17th in the beautiful city of Cap-Haitien.
The global tourism industry has grown in recent times, with more people appreciating the need to spend some time to relax and enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature.

The Tourism Innovation Summit, otherwise known as TIS, is however put together to facilitate an exchange of ideas and resources that spur interest, inspire collaboration, and attract strategic investments in the Haitian tourism sector for its sustainable growth.
The event will feature practical examples and illustrations, serving as a platform for attendees to join 50 global and local tourism leaders and strategic partners, with participating leaders including Uber, Booking.com, CNN Travel, BBC Travel, Bureau Hospitality Group, Groupe Moural, Fatima Group expected at the event.
The smart and strategy-driven event built through the Haitian curatorial lens will allow participants to engage in conversations, listen to panels moderated by development actors and industry experts, and discover fresh initiatives within Haiti’s tourism sector.
The Tourism Innovation Summit is a 15 years enterprise of Haiti Tourism Inc. and Tourism Innovation Inc. and the 2018 edition of the event is held in partnership with other heavyweights in the industry that are looking to change the narrative in the Haitian tourism industry for the better.
Some of the partners of this year’s edition include the City hall of Cap-Haitien, Cap-Haitien Chamber of Commerce, ATH (Association Touristique Haiti), OGDNH (Organisation de Gestion de la Destination Nord Haïti), Ayiti Nexus, DAGMAR, and the U.S. Embassy.
There are several ticket packages available to interested participants, with most of the packages including hotel accommodation, food and ground transportation (Airport-hotel). With relatively few spaces available, interested participants are urged to get the ticket as early as possible, with the possibility of getting a special discount for group reservations.
TIS is designed to be continuous as a year-long lecture series will be initiated around Haiti’s tourism brand to push the boundaries to the ‘bleeding edge’ of tourism and technology – similar to Carnegie Mellon’s Design lecture series and conference.
Inspired by South Africa’s Design Indaba Festival, the TIS is organized to help stakeholders take advantage of the untapped market in Haiti’s tourism sector, with the aim of offering unique experiences within art, music, history, development, and ecology amongst others.
