Airbnb continues to deepen its roots in the Caribbean, signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the British Virgin Islands (BVI) to collaborate on areas of common interest. This strategic partnership aims to drive local, authentic, and sustainable tourism to the islands, democratize the tourism economy, and directly benefit Virgin Islanders.
The TEDx Wilmington audience was graced with a British Virgin Islands experience in Wilmington, Delaware on September 28. The BVI Tourist Board promoted the territory through an interactive display booth, entitled “Sun, Sand and Sea”. Previous guests of the BVI expressed their desire to return, and many look forward to a BVI island-hopping experience.
Scores of persons from various organisations in the BVI joined hands at Long Bay Beach, Beef Island on Saturday September 8 to form a human chain spelling “One BVI” in observance of the first anniversary of Hurricane Irma.
