More looky looky from Kevin, Vicky and Pat using numbers and comparison years 2015 to 2007, whatever looks the best. Very few challenge the BTA spin because obviously they don't care and many can't think beyond GlobalHue days.
Kevin says hotels are not a point where they are "sustainable and profitable" but BTA has hotels doing an 8 month 50% off Pink Sale in a year that was supposed to see no "shoulder season". Why would any one want to build a hotel in Bermuda?
Vicky brags about Longwoods survey and the increase in visitor spending but she left out that Longwoods based their figures on data supplied by BTA. BTA visitor spending data comes from unknown number of visitors who reply to BTA after they get home. BTA's consultants take a couple of percent of these returns and make a guesstimate of their spending.
Pat talks about all these young people coming to Bermuda in sports groups so BTA can do more looky looky they are attracting younger people. BTA and stakeholders are bringing in these sports groups and like the free trips that BTA arranges for hundreds of media types, fashionistas, travel groups, Uber groups, and others, they are young and did not choose Bermuda, Bermuda (BTA) chose them. Kevin is off to a good start to maintaining the BTA spin and party atmosphere.
Again, BTA will destroy Bermuda tourism.
