Noting the intentions of the Bermuda Tourism Authority [BTA] and the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation [BEDC] to “breathe life back into Bermuda’s tourism product and include a push for increased entrepreneurial activity,” the Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce [BEST] has urged the BTA, BEDC and entrepreneurs to recall that “the #1 attraction is Bermuda’s exquisite natural environment.”
BEST cited a statement from Bermuda Tourism Authority Chief Executive Kevin Dallas, who said, “Our product and experiences team is keen to find Bermudian entrepreneurs that can innovate in three main areas: authentically Bermudian entertainment, sports events and Bermudian cultural experiences that highlight our local art, food and traditions. Submissions can focus on entirely new experiences or existing experiences looking to grow.”
“It will be important for the BTA and BEDC to also provide those budding business builders with all of the information in respect of applicable policies and/or permissions that will be needed for those new businesses to site or set-up their operations. Failure to do so could result in the enterprise running afoul of the regulations, BEST said.
