Last weekend, representatives from the Antigua Hotels & Tourist Association (AHTA), Anthea Watkins and Thalia David along with Andrea Jeremiah and Beverly King from the Jolly Beach Resort & Spa participated at the “I am Woman, Bridal Expo” held in Trinidad.

The event spanned two days with exhibitors from the local community, airlines and regional tourism organizations. In preparation for their Weddings and Honeymoons, hundreds of brides and grooms-to-be visited many of the booths that were showcasing wedding apparels, and providing literature on destination weddings and honeymoon packages.  

The AHTA booth shared with Jolly Beach Resort & Spa was visited by many couples who were keen to have their Honeymoon in Antigua & Barbuda.  According to Anthea Watkins, “Many Trinidadians have a love for Antigua & Barbuda because of the beaches, hospitality and all inclusive resorts.  Antigua & Barbuda is an ideal wedding and honeymoon destination that offers tranquility, beauty and cultural similarities”. 

Andrea Jeremiah, Marketing Manager –Jolly Beach Resort & Spa was extremely pleased to hear the positive reviews expressed by the Trinidad market from her interaction with the attendees about Jolly Beach Resort & Spa.  
      
The Antigua contingent with airline partner, LIAT, held a raffle on the second day of the event.  A Honeymoon Prize for an engaged couple including two complimentary tickets on LIAT and “two nights stay” at Verandah Resort & Spa, and an extra night at the Jolly Beach Resort & Spa.  The lucky winners were Rhian Ramkisson and Lisa-Marie Stewart of Tunapuna, Trinidad.  The couple are looking forward to their upcoming nuptials in the month of November and spending their honeymoon in Antigua & Barbuda.   
 
Said Lisa-Marie Stewart, winner of the honeymoon giveaway, “I’ve heard so many things about Antigua & Barbuda from family and friends and fell in love with the country.  As soon as I heard of the raffle, I signed- up at the AHTA booth so that I would have the opportunity to visit Antigua for my honeymoon.   I was so happy when my name was called as the winner”.     
  
The event was deemed a success by many who participated, and the AHTA along with its members intend to be at the next Bridal Show in 2011 to continue promoting Antigua & Barbuda as a premier wedding & honeymoon destination.
