History

The Curaçao Hotel Association was established on April 3, 1967. In 1982 the Constitution was amended to change the name to Curaçao Hotel and Tourism Association (CHATA), to allow the participation of non-hotel tourism partners.

In 1998 the name was changed to Curaçao Hospitality And Tourism Association (CHATA) to illustrate the development of the association towards becoming the representative organization for the entire hospitality and tourism industry in Curaçao.

At present, CHATA’s membership includes hotels and apartments, airlines, car rentals, restaurants, touroperators and destination management, attractions, the airport, the ports authority and ports services, industry and trade development, World Trade Center, advertising and publishing, banking, insurance, training and consultancy, resort development, dive operators, shops and other tourism related businesses.
