Hospitality Month ‘Officially’ Gets Underway

April 13, 2017

Hospitality Month 2017 is officially underway, with the first winner to the ‘Experience Bermuda’ Scavenger Hunt announced yesterday at City Hall, Hamilton.

Malika Cartwright, the Executive Director of Bermuda Hospitality Institute, said: “Our goal this month is to equip as many residents as possible with a fresh passion for, and greater knowledge about, Bermuda.

“So when visitors start to flood our shores for the 35th America’s Cup, residents will be ready to answer their questions or direct them to the right spot for local fish chowder or a Dark N’ Stormy.

BHI Hospitality Month Bermuda April 2017

“This is our time to show the world why our small 21-square mile island is known for having some of the best warmth and hospitality on the planet. That’s why we’re using Hospitality Month 2017 to get people ready and excited for what’s next.”

The Bermuda Hospitality Institute has worked to make this month’s offerings as interactive as possible.

Starting on April 1, they began hosting an Island-wide scavenger hunt – encouraging people to revisit various sights and landmarks and remember all the great gems Bermuda has to offer. Clues for that can be downloaded each week using the BVO app or picked up from the Hamilton Visitor’s Information Centre.

In addition to weekly prizes from places like Cambridge Beaches, Fun Golf and Lindo’s, those who visit the locations found in all 30 clues will be entered into a draw for a grand prize.

Mrs. Cartwright congratulated the winner from week one, Sarah Robinson, who took home a $100 voucher to Lindo’s. She said: “We’re very excited people are taking the time to participate in this fun endeavor. There’s still time for more to get involved – just download the app, pick up the clues and have fun hunting around after work, on your lunch break or weekends.”

The scavenger hunt isn’t all that’s happening during Hospitality Month. Throughout April, Rosa’s will be concocting a specialty drink and all proceeds from that, and any blooming onions ordered, will go towards BHI’s various education and training programmes.
