    And de CEO getting $1000 a day.

    • DeOnion says:

      And tourism the only thing doing well right now ….

      • MB says:

        Depends how you define ‘well’
        200k is a long way from 80s over 400k…and a fraction of our gdp.
        Well is Cayman, over 1.7m cruise over 409k air!
        So no, tourism is not doing well. And 3m for an office in NY can’t they just work from home?

    • Question says:

      And more tourists than ever before.

    • Rockfish#1 and #2 says:

      And to think, the taxpayer has been continually told the BTA would be funding itself.

    • Mark says:

      And doing more in one day than you have achieved in a lifetime.

    • Wahoo says:

      And you thought being on the black list was a good thing. If you were worth $200 per day you would be overpaid.

    I am always surprised how easy it is for those to accept everything from BTA without asking what value was received for these expenditures. If this was the government there would be questions! There is no need for NYC office in a high rent location, it is nothing more than a staff office. With the number of ad, marketing and PR consultants under contract what does the all BTA staff do? Thanks to improved economy in USA there have been big increases in American’s traveling, who checks the ROI on these contracts to insure they are bringing in visitors and not just more American’s traveling?

    • Sandgrownan says:

      ROI is an integral part of the process

  3. Hmmm says:

    That New York office cost is quite high. Surely we can create a more cost effective way to have a presence overseas.

    • I can't says:

      You do see the NY office lease is until 2029 right? Pretty good cost for Manhattan.

    • Question says:

      That’s for 11 years. How does it compare with the cost of the useless office in Brussels that got us on the blacklist?

    Bermuda does not need any tourists.
    they just crowd our beaches
    they don’t spend enough money on the island
    they don’t say , friendly enough ” good morning”.
    result :
    ban them from our island , we don’t need them at all.
    irony off
