In Puerto Rico, Turning the Travel World into an Island

SAN JUAN — The Caribbean’s newest travel conference began with a simple idea.

“We decided that the world should become an island,” says Ingrid Rivera Rocafort, executive of the director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company, which launched the first-ever Expo Turismo Internacional at the Puerto Rico Convention Center this week.

Thursday saw the culmination of that vision with ETI, a new kind of Caribbean conference aimed at gathering travel agents and tourism actors from around the world in one regional hub.
