Sister Island's Events

Postby KarenS » Mon May 15, 2006 7:58 am

From Cayman Net News: "The tenth anniversary of the sinking of the MV Capt. KP Tibbetts is one of several activities the Sister Islands Tourism Association (SITA) have in store for visitors to Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.

The event has been pencilled in for 20 to 27 October in Cayman Brac as the Sister Islands advances its claim to a rapidly growing tourism industry in the Cayman Islands.

Representing SITA at the recent Cayman Islands Tourism Exchange, Chevala Burke gave a power-point presentation on the Islands’ plans to develop their industry and maximise returns.

In a presentation dubbed ‘Why Cayman Brac and Little Cayman’, SITA highlighted the ‘Lost City of Atlantis’, sports tourism, Nature Cayman, its museum and a heritage house as their attractions.

A new dive site called Cayman’s Lost City of Atlantis and the work of artist ‘Foots’ will form part of the Islands’ thrust for more revenue.

According to SITA, continued penetration of the sport tourism niche market with the Brac Turtle Tri would lead to increased local and international repeat participants in its third successful year.

Free nature tours, trained guides and nature/historical sites would compliment signature events and expansion of nature tourism project, Nature Cayman, according to SITA.

Rejuvenation of the Cayman Brac Museum, the oldest museum in the country, also new exhibits and displays have been undertaken, attendees heard at the Ritz-Carlton in Grand Cayman on Monday during the 7 to 9 May event.

Mrs Burke also talked about the development of the Heritage House, which features weekly artist displays and is a cultural/historical site.

Among the upcoming events slated for the Sister Islands are the annual agriculture show, the international museum day family fun fair on 3 June, and Little Cayman cook-off on 1 July.

The next Brac Turtle Tri, involving local and international runners, has been scheduled for 1 April 2007.

The organisers are promising added bonuses of a personal touch, safety and 'your home away from home' experience to visitors.

The international traveller wholesalers and local stakeholders were told by SITA that, 'Superb destination + fantastic wholesaler/agent = an ecstatic customer.'"
