More than thirty Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association members are finalists in the prestigious 2018 tourism awards, which take place next Saturday, October 13th at Sandals Royal Barbados.
This event, which celebrates the outstanding contributions of BHTA members to the tourism industry, features two new awards, the best on-line brand engagement and agricultural linkages.
The biennial event is hosted at the end of the tenure of each BHTA chairman.
This year's awards are being presented for the period June 2016 to June 2018, during which time Roseanne Myers served as chairman of the Association.
Chief executive officer Rudy Grant says this is the association's way of recognising exceptional levels of excellence in the industry.
He says this is the perfect platform for the BHTA to showcase the best-of-the-best in local tourism, from our people to our accommodation, our attractions, restaurants and experiences.
