Post Tours Itineraries
The overall event is based on a tradeshow format, with post–show FAM trips. Buyers will choose an expedition at the time of registration, at which point, the space on that expedition will be subject to official confirmation by BETEX. Full itineraries will be confirmed closer to the event dates. Please see the preliminary Schedule of Events for more details.
Expedition itineraries will be designed and organized by BETEX.
a. Double-occupancy accommodations (limited numbers of single occupancy accommodations are available at a premium), tours, transfers, and meals as specified in the itineraries, will be included in the Expedition Registration cost.
b. Only registered suppliers will be eligible to provide services for the expedition, on a first-come, first-served basis, based on availability. BETEX cannot guarantee that all supplier offers will be included in the expedition, due to limited availability.
c. It will be absolutely prohibited for Suppliers to conduct “tours” or “meetings” for registered buyers outside of the established itineraries.
d. BETEX reserves the right to expel any company or companies from participation in the rest of the event and future events that act contrary to the above.
e. BETEX shall not be held responsible for any unforeseen circumstances that may occur during the expedition portion that may disrupt the itineraries or require changes in the pre-planned schedule.
Educational Seminar & Orientation
An educational seminar and orientation will be offered to the buyers during the marketplace event, with the intention of broadening their knowledge of the tourism products in Belize (sea, land, adventure) and describing details and expectations for the rest of the expeditions. BETEX will identify appropriate presenters.
Social Activities & Functions
Social activities are those specified in the official program of events. All registered delegates (suppliers & buyers) may attend the opening night function. Any other social activity that openly contravenes with the designed schedule for programmed activities will not be encouraged. Participants must wear identification badges to all social functions.
