“ITU World Triathlon Bermuda is a world-class event and as we’ve seen in the past Bermuda has the talent to meet the highest global standards. The team of people working on this event is committed to finding the right local partnerships,” said the Bermuda Tourism Authority’s Chief Product and Experiences Development Officer Pat Phillip-Fairn.

“Whenever there is an economic opportunity, we will share it publicly online. Individuals and companies should submit proposals if they believe they have what it takes to get the job done.”

The ITU World Triathlon Bermuda will welcome international athletes, fans and officials to the island beginning April 2018.

The first batch of RFPs deal mainly with spectator entertainment and logistics between Thursday, April 26th and Saturday, April 28th, 2018, on Front Street and other nearby locations along the proposed race course.

The Bermuda Tourism Authority formed WTSBDA Ltd. earlier this year to manage the execution of the ITU World Triathlon Bermuda, which is expected to feature reigning world champion, Bermudian Flora Duffy.

The WTSBDA Organising Committee is made up of members of the Bermuda Tourism Authority, the Bermuda Triathlon Association and other local stakeholders who work alongside experienced international organisations that put on triathlon events around the world.

    Thank you OBA/BTA and AC for the positive spin on our island to attract these events. Dear PLP please arrange to have buses up and running.

    Without hosting AC35 we most probably would not have been able to attract this event.

    Thanks to OBA/BTA and of course ACBDA for all that you did to take us forward with a positive note for events such as these.
