As part of its aggressive North American promotional campaign, the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board (BVITB) has “sailed” into the South Florida area for a quartet of tradeshows and events. Director of Tourism Sharon Flax-Brutus said, “Having high visibility in the marketplace confirms that we are ready to welcome both our loyal repeat guests, as well as new ones.”
Nearly six months after mighty Hurricane Irma tore through the British Virgin Islands, the idyllic destination has made significant progress in restoring its celebrated tourism product. And of course, the best way for travelers to boost recovery efforts is to simply book a trip.
“I am very proud of the exceptional performance by the BVI National Culinary Team during the Taste of the Caribbean.” Those are the words of the Premier of the Virgin Islands, Dr. the Honourable D. Orlando Smith, OBE in congratulating the BVI Culinary Team on their “BIG WIN”.
The British Virgin Islands continues to see positive growth in the tourism industry with initial tourism figures for January to July 2016 showing an overall increase of 27.3 percent for all visitors, when compared to the same period in 2015.
