Belize went international last month!
Our beautiful country hosted its 1st Annual Belize Travel & Tradeshow at the Broward County Convention Center, Fort Lauderdale, FL. The event was hosted by the Belize Diaspora Network, Belize Tourism Board, and Beltraide to showcase the multiple beauties Belize has to offer.
This event aimed to increase international awareness for Belize to develop new business and tourism possibilities with similar organizations in the Miami and South Florida area. Additionally, this was also an opportunity to show our national pride and culture that makes Belize so unique and incredibly irresistible!
To represent the San Ignacio Resort Hotel, our very own Kristin Roberson made an appearance on Florida’s Local 10 ABC News. She spoke about the things to look forward to at the event:
During the Convention, visitors were able to learn more about doing business in Belize, find out what it would be like to host their special wedding day or honeymoon in our country, and taste delicious Belizean cuisine and beverages. Whilst experiencing our typical flavours, guests were also able to have a taste of the refreshingly delicious Caribbean Coolers from Island Time Beverages.
The Hotel of the Year, the San Ignacio Resort Hotel, graced the event with their presence and raffled a dream vacation for two. Here, the lucky winners would be able to experience a luxurious getaway and relax in our renowned Resort. Other Belizean hotels like Midas Resort & Robert’s Grove, were also present at the event.
