Thriving in times of rapid change requires versatility and agility of individuals. These are the ingredients of success within any organization. During the hurricane recovery process, the Premier’s Office recognized the need to strengthen the linkage between the tourism and hospitality public and private sector, with a view to expediting the recovery of the industry.
Assuring that guests to the British Virgin Islands have an excellent guest service experience is a high priority of the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board & Film Commission (BVITB). As a demonstration of that commitment, the Board has ensured that four of its employees were trained under the Hospitality Assured (HA) Programme; two as advisors and two as assessors.
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”.
