Heather Doughlin, director of events, explains why the hotel remains at the forefront of the Caribbean business meetings industry
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – April 10, 2015 – Not many hotels can list hosting 34 heads of state at one time, including a sitting U.S. president, on their list of corporate credentials; however, Hyatt Regency Trinidad can.

One major contributor to the hotel’s success is its convenient location in Port of Spain, Trinidad, which is arguably the most important business and industrial hub in the Caribbean. Another business advantage is the variety of airlift options to Piarco International Airport, a place that welcomes multiple flights daily from major cities in the U.S., South America and the immediate region.
Although notable, the hotel’s phenomenal success is attributable to more than just those factors. Below, Director of Events Heather Doughlin, CMP, speaks candidly about the other features that keep Hyatt Regency Trinidad competitive.(read more)
