Bahamas targets religious conference market

Seventeen faith-based planners traveled to Nassau in October on a first-ever joint venture to explore the country as a destination for religious meetings and events. The Bahamas Tourism Office and the Religious Conference Management Association partnered to create a unique experience to expose planners to the culture, sights, sounds, tastes, and venues of the Bahamas.

ALT TAG HERENov. 12/12 (Regina McGee) – Participating planners explored Nassau and Grand Bahama Island and many venues, hotels, and unique spaces capable of hosting their events. Programming consisted of a Bahamas culture overview, educational sessions, an RCMA advisory session, and interactions with various hotel managers, service providers, and the newly elected Bahamas Minister of Tourism.

Future opportunities are being planned for site visits to various areas for qualified RCMA planner members, notes Dean Jones, CMP, RCMA’s director of conferences and events. “There’s nothing like an in-person experience of a destination, and by partnering with different destinations to explore meeting opportunities, RCMA is helping both planners and suppliers to meet their business goals,” Jones says.
