    This panel makes more sense than having group of off-island consultants with no Bermuda tourism experience dictating the National Tourism Plan to the BDoT/BTA. The 4 zone plan was lucky if 20% was applicable by the time BTA even looked at it. For past 30 years Bermuda tourism has been telling the visitors what they will get instead of providing what the visitors expect for a memorable experience. There should be a different repeat visitor each day on the panel to provide visitor input that continues to be ignored.

      Visitor input? You can’t please everyone and frankly some of these visitors are on crack when they say Bermuda is so expensive! Try spending a night in New York or Hawaii sometime their costs are higher than ours!

    It’s not just the $$$$ it is the total package that makes a memorable experience for a visitor. From the 1920’s until early 1970’s Bermuda was known for being expensive but guests paid the price to enjoy the level of service along with the other elements that made up their memorable experience. In 1970’s Bermuda hotel management adopted the ‘good enough’ attitude toward visitors and the decline in tourism started. Bermuda tourism has always been unique and only a few understand that how Bermuda EARNED its reputation as a prime destination is still applicable today.
