Interested In Providing Events In Dockyard?

February 1, 2018

Dockyard could get yet another attraction as people are being asked to submit proposals to manage a weekly summer event.

The West End Development Corporation [WEDCO] has issued an RFP, in conjunction with the Bermuda Tourism Authority, which asks for “an individual or company who specializes in event planning, production and management to provide comprehensive event production services within Royal Naval Dockyard”.

It adds: “The successful proposer will be responsible for the production of the Royal Naval Dockyard’s Weekly Summer Event.”

Joanna Cranfield, WEDCO’s Business Development Manager, said many of the tenants had asked if Dockyard could host a weekly event which could attract more people to the area.

“We thought it was a good idea, so we have issued the RFP to see if it is possible,” said Ms Cranfield. “I want to stress that this will be complementary to the very popular Harbour Nights and our event will be on Mondays, which is a day when we have thousands of visitors with two cruise ships.”

Ms Cranfield said WEDCO was quite open-minded about the type of event, but that ideas submitted should “appeal to cruise ship passengers, air passenger visitors and residents, be family friendly and incorporate as much of Bermuda’s rich culture as possible”.

“We think this will be an excellent addition to the events we have at Dockyard throughout the summer and will make the area a very special and fun place to visit for tourists and locals.”
