“Hilton is sold out because of the Food Wine and Rum Festival and a number of our tourism partners are saying they are having an extremely unusual November,” he said during  the Democratic Labour Party’s lunchtime lecture.
The BTA?chairman, however, admitted that the year would not end on a positive note, but credited the boost to various incentives and initiatives which were implemented to encourage tourists to both come and to spend money on the island. (LW)
