THE NEWEST members to join the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA) received an introduction to the Association, its history, function and benefits, during a new member’s orientation held recently.
Commencing Winter 2017, travellers will be able to fly directly between London Heathrow Airport and Grantley Adams International Airport, thanks to a new service from Virgin Atlantic.
SINCE the launch of our Environmental Charter last June, members of the Association who have signed on are seeing great benefits and results.
The end of March 2017 will be three (3) months since I have been functioning in the capacity as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA).
During these three (3) months attention has been given to a myriad of issues including the operation of the Tourism Development Amendment Act (TDAA) and the need to expand the items approved for importation annually by hotels and restaurants, which is of extreme importance.
In their continued efforts to promote the island and its tourism product, a large Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA) contingent is attending the 2017 Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association’s (CHTA) Caribbean Travel Marketplace taking place in the Bahamas this week.
As you may all know, the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA) celebrates its 65th Anniversary in June 2017.We will be updating you shortly on our plans to celebrate this milestone and using this space to look back on the development of the Association over the years.
