AED is coordinating a trip to Cuba this spring to give equipment industry executives an opportunity to personally assess conditions and opportunities on the island.

The trip, which will take place from May 13 to 17, is being arranged exclusively for AED members and participation is limited to no more than 35 participants. The Deadline to register is Feb. 29. The $5,000 per-person fee includes:
• Roundtrip airfare from Tampa to Havana • Luxury hotel accommodations • Meals at both government and private restaurants • Chauffeured ground transportation in Cuba • Visa • Medical insurance • Travel agent fees • English speaking guide • “People to people” meetings • Historical tours • Museum fees • Cuban government meetings

Because U.S. law prohibits tourist travel to Cuba, the AED trip is designed to qualify under the travel ban exceptions. The itinerary will include substantial educational programming and meetings related to economic, workforce and infrastructure conditions.

The group will depart from Tampa, Florida on Friday, May 13 and return to Tampa on Tuesday, May 17. Participants should make their own travel arrangements to arrive in Tampa on Thursday, May 12.
A more detailed itinerary and travel information will be provided to participants.
