Nicaragua Selected to Host CATHIE in 2009

It was announced that the Central America Tourism & Hotel Investment Exchange will be held March 24-26, 2009, in Managua, Nicaragua.

Tuesday, August 26, 2008


Hosted by BHN, CATHIE focuses on the hotel and tourism investment opportunities in the rapidly growing Central America region. The Foreign Investment Advisory Service (FIAS) of The World Bank Group is supporting the event, and all seven Central American countries (Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama) have been invited to become patrons of CATHIE. Last year’s inaugural event in Guatemala City, Guatemala, welcomed nearly 250 hotel and tourism industry leaders eager to network and learn about hotel investment opportunities in Central America.

A full program of timely, topical sessions will run along side an active networking/exhibit hall. The program will be developed with the assistance of the 2009 CATHIE Program Planning Committee comprised of leadership of Central America's investment promotion agencies, as well as industry leading hotel companies and advisors in the region. Program planning is about to begin, and information about the CATHIE program is available at
