    Did he get de same report on de airport that P.L.P. got, if he did then he dont know de numbers.

    • the real Terry says:

      @onion juice, It appears that it is not only the numbers that you and your plp friends do not know about but about most other important things affecting our island at this time as well.

    • wahoo says:

      If you read between the lines you would have got the impression that he is not concerned with how the airport is paid for only that it is built. He is trying to keep tourism (his job) separate from politics and good for him for taking a fresh approach. Wish him luck you nerd.

  2. Athena says:

    Wide range of topics and a good introduction to Mr. Dallas and how he sees various areas of tourism impacting 2017.

    Look forward to other interviews by Mr. Deacon with the BTA throughout the year as America’s Cup and other events unfold.

    A very informative interview with a very impressive man, who is clearly already right up to speed on the issues, challenges and most importantly the opportunities. Lets hope he gets all the support he and his team need to continue the progress made so far. Good luck!

  4. Tony Brannon says:

    Excellent interview.
    May Bermuda continue the renaissance in tourism, brought about by the leadership of the BTA in conjunction with Investors in Bermuda Tourism such as The Green Family, Morgans Point, The Loren at Pink Beach plus the ongoing upgrades at Fairmont Southampton.
    Others are on the drawing boards still: Ariel Sands, St. George’s.

    America’s Cup and sports tourism bode well for Bermuda – no doubt 2017 will be an exciting year.

    Gaming is coming, albeit painfully slowly, car rental legislation is passed.
    We do desperately need competition for British Airways – good luck with that.

  5. Islands of Rest says:

    Please no AirBNB regulation until there is evidence that it needs regulation. Let the Bermudian people participate and re-build their economy. Then the cynicism and negativity towards tourism will go away…its a symptom of disenfranchisement. Bermudians when given the chance will own tourism again. Red carpet for Bermudian entrepreneurs not red tape.
