‘Summertime in Freeport’ launched by Bahamas Tourist Office

Published on : Friday, May 17, 2019

The Bahamas Tourist Office, Florida launched ‘Summertime in Freeport,’ in a grand, gala-style event aboard a Super Yacht in Miami,


The event, which promised a sneak preview of summertime fun and excitement in Freeport, Grand Bahama, drew travel agents, local South Florida influencers and media.  It featured a red-carpet entry boarding of the mega yacht, Seafair berthed at a port in downtown Miami, and a sail-away from the port for the evening’s affair.


The festivities aboard the yacht included a business-to-business (B2B) networking reception with Freeport destination vendors followed by a talk show format presentation, ‘Summertime in Freeport;’ an elegant dinner and dance, and culminated with the unique rhythmic sounds of Bahamian Junkanoo as the boat returned to its port.


The night was all about Freeport, the second major city of The Islands Of The Bahamas, and the promotional color of the Island, a bright orange, was the decorative theme.  Splashes of orange dominated the luxurious venue, but what said Freeport more than anything during the night was the 13-piece Royal Bahamas Police Pop Band (Grand Bahama division) that provided crowd pleasing entertainment at dining.


Described as highly successful, the event was organized by the marketing team of the Bahamas Tourist Office, Florida, under the leadership of their Director of Sales, Mrs. Betty Bethel-Moss.


The Talk show styled presentation, ‘Summertime in Freeport,’ featured an appearance by the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation’s Deputy Director General (DDG), Ellison ‘Tommy’ Thompson.  The DDG spoke about the Ministry of Tourism’s goals and marketing strategy for the Freeport tourism product.
