Tourism boost expected
BARBADOS WILL HOST a classical and pop music festival and motor sport’s Race of Champions – two major events which will give tourism a boost.
Both will be held in December following the annual Food & Wine and Rum Festival, set for November.
The events were announced today during a meeting the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. held for nearly 100 travel agents from across the globe.
During the meeting at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre tourism leaders underscored the point that Barbados had much more than sun, sand and sea to offer tourists.
The BTMI’s acting president and chief executive officer Petra Roach also said Barbados was going after a greater slice of the weddings market. (TY)
