      Subject: July Conference in Cuba

      I sent a brief notice a few weeks ago about the International Convention of Tourist Studies which will be held in Cuba from July 12th to 16th, 2010.  Complete information and a registration form are available in Spanish and English at  http://www.cietcuba.com

      Members of the International Advisory Committee are:

      James Deegan, PhD. Manager of the National Centre of Tourist Policy Studies, University of Limerick, Ireland
      Germán Sierra Anaya, PhD. Rector of the University of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia
      Jesús Felipe Gallego, PhD. Professor of the Master Program of Hotel Management of the Polytechnic University of Madrid, and Enterprise Consultant, Spain

      Cuba is becoming a prime destination in the Caribbean with 2.4 million visitors last year.  Legislation in the US Congress (HR 4645, S 3112) which has a reasonable chance of passage will allow all Americans to finally visit legally.  Estimates are that 500,000 to one million of us will go in the first year and the numbers will grow substantially and quickly.  Polls show about 40% of Americans wish to go to Cuba.

      Specialists in travel and tourism from all countries but the US can choose to attend this conference as they would any other professional gathering.  American participation is still restricted by regulations promulgated in 2004 by the Bush Administration and not yet modified by President Obama.

      However there are ways to attend that are authorized by US law which I am happy to share.
