April is Hospitality Month
Hospitality Month is about promoting the importance of tourism to the economic wellbeing of Bermuda residents, while celebrating individuals and organisations who represent the best of the island's hospitality industry. It’s also a perfect time to create awareness of tourism and hospitality careers to students while introducing and promoting the national tourism plan to the community.
From April 1 – 30, there will be activities for all ages to be enjoyed by residents. Come and experience the wonder of Whale Watching, Waterside Painting, the Art of Blending Fragrances and much more!
This year’s theme is the Five Senses.
Hospitality Month is all about the “local involvement” because tourism in Bermuda can only grow through and with the support of its residents. Visitors to the island cite interactions with locals as one of the best parts of their trip. Offering opportunities for residents to be able to explore the many attractions Bermuda has to offer provides knowledge to share with our guest.
Please join us in a fun-filled month full of adventures for you to experience.
- Wine with a View
- Over Whale-Ming Sounds
- Spokin’ Around
- Paint the Town Bermuda
- Bermuda Scent-Sations
