It has been a real god year for Antigua and Barbuda, in fact, in December, stayover arrivals will top 300,000 and to celebrate that milestone, the tourism authority is launching a new ‘Come home’ sweepstakes, inviting the Antiguan and Barbudan diaspora to join in on the celebrations.
Antigua and Barbuda Minister of Tourism, The Honourable Charles Fernandez observed: “The destination has received tremendous growth since 2018, and we are proud to know that by December 2019, we would have met and surpassed our target of 300,000 stay-over visitor arrivals.”
The Minister continued: “We have to recognise each and every one employed in the tourism industry, who have welcomed visitors to our shores and whose deliverance of quality customer care ensures our visitors have an amazing experience while they are here.”
Colin C. James, CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, noted that: “Reaching 300,000 stay-over tourism arrivals is a significant milestone. We have incredible partnerships with stakeholders throughout the industry, who have been instrumental in bringing us to this milestone, and who are as committed as we are to driving tourism growth.”
As Antigua and Barbuda Tourism officials push to reach the 300,000 mark, the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority has launched a sweepstake specifically targeted to the global diaspora.
“The Antigua and Barbuda diaspora are travelers too. And we are inviting them to ‘Come home in December’ to reconnect with family and friends, and ring in the new decade in Antigua and Barbuda,” said James.
The ‘Come Home in December’ promotion entices Antiguans and Barbudans living abroad to come home during the month of December for a chance to win a free 3-night, 4-day trip back to Antigua during summer of 2020.
The sweepstake is open to citizens of Antigua and Barbuda living abroad and persons of Antiguan and Barbudan heritage.
People must enter on the www.visitantiguabarbuda.com website and be able to prove booking and travel between Dec. 1 and Dec. 31, 2019.
One winner will be selected from each of Antigua and Barbuda’s main source markets in the USA, Canada, U.K. & Europe and the Caribbean.
Winners will be selected by random drawing and will be expected to show proof of citizenship and heritage or lineage.
