So by attending you’ll learn information about each event and you’ll hear from each organiser of each event on behalf of the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board and what people can expect.”

It was noted that a fish fry will be taking place during the launch and a “mixologist” will be preparing some signature drinks. Additionally, there will be entertainment by DJ Dre and the HLSCC Stingrays.
