BTA Tourism Ideas Investment Opens In Sept.

August 17, 2015

The Tourism Experiences application process for the Bermuda Tourism Authority’s [BTA] investment in home-grown ideas reopens September 3rd, 2015. From that date applicants will have one month to submit their home-grown ideas to grow the tourism industry.

The new process will be for tourism experiences that take place between January 1 and December 31, 2016. The BTA funds entrepreneurs’ ideas for visitor experiences up to $75,000.

“Also on September 3rd, the BTA will host a free, voluntary workshop designed to educate potential applicants about creating successful tourism experiences. The workshop, to be held at Elbow Beach Bermuda, is split into a morning session [8:30am-10:30am] and an afternoon session [4:30pm-6:30pm],” the BTA said.

“The same content will be shared at both sessions so applicants should only attend one session. Tourism industry trends and marketing strategies will be among the agenda items covered. The workshop will also walk potential applicants through the online application portal.

    $75,000.00 …. Ok , I want one open top double decker bus , I want the offside wrapped with The Talbot Brothers and , the near side wrapped with Hubert Smith . I’ll play their music and serve unlimited rum swizzle and fish chowder with mini fish cakes and slider hot cross buns to my guest while giving a two hour tour of the Island .

    I think I’ll need a bit more then $75,000.00

    I’ll accept your money on one condition only … And that will be permission to drive it through the whole of Tucker’s Town with the bass pumping And Hubert singing Bermuda Is Another World !
