The Belize Tourism Industry Association made its presence at this year’s National Agriculture and Trade Show held in Belmopan on April 27th through to Sunday April 29th. The event drew thousands of Belizeans and tourists alike who got to experience a variety of activities such as the showcasing of the country’s best crops, animals, plants, deals on electronics, beverages and packages from both the public and private sector.

Our booth saw scores of visitors; interested in finding out more about our association, its members and our “Stay in Belize Staycation Raffle.” The staff spent the main days, Saturday and Sunday, encouraging visitors to tour our exotic country by distributing membership pamphlets and the Destination Belize Magazine. We also related information about special deals they could receive at member hotels, restaurants, tour operators and business individuals throughout Belize; from our tropical rainforest to our amazing barrier reef, we promoted every aspect of what there is to do in our jewel and where you can go for the best experiences.

The “Stay in Belize Staycation Raffle” was also a big hit at the booth as individuals were curious to learn more about the raffle, the places they could visit and the various prizes they could win. Adults and even kids were eager to sign their names and have the opportunity to win a great, all-inclusive 2 week vacation for a family of 4 throughout the entire country. The chance to go zip-lining, cave-tubing, snorkeling and sight-seeing in the various districts while staying at some of Belize’s top resorts and hotels, was just too much of an offer to refuse by show goers. The BTIA therefore, would like to extend sincere thanks and gratitude to all the visitors who made our booth a success and all our members from across the country that we represented this weekend.

Kindly note that from Friday May 18th to Sunday May 20th, the BTIA National will be promoting our “Staycation” raffle and members at this year’s Toledo Cacao Fest. The Festival is a time to stimulate the senses and will be packed with activities for the young and old alike, paying tribute to the organic cacao farmers and Belizean chocolatiers. All Belizeans are invited to this cultural celebration; from exquisite chocolate creations, wines and food, to fireworks, dancing, music and live performances, come and experience Toledo’s celebration of cacao and our rich natural heritage.
