It was arranged to help various sporting event organizers based on Grand Bahama Island, Abaco and Bimini to discuss on different facets of setting up world-class sporting event for Northern Islands in Bahamas.

 
To quote Betty Bethel, Director, Ministry of Tourism, Grand Bahama Island, ‘We realized that in our re-positioning of the destination, Grand Bahama fits perfectly with athletic events, various youth groups, and amateur athletic events.’

To quote Virginia Kelly, Director, Sports Tourism, Ministry of Tourism, New Providence, ‘We need to let the Bahamian people know what we are doing in terms of building our sports tourism programme… We are letting the stakeholders know how we can do it.’
Numerous topics like event planning, marketing, sponsorship, packaging, partnership, and amateur sports were covered at the event with a panel of seven speakers. Invitees were requested to share their ideas, ask questions and list their concerns at the open panel discussion in the event.
