BARBADOS TOURISM PRODUCTS

Tourism is a global marketplace. Traditional experiences are now duplicated across the globe with new non-traditional market players entering the fray, creating a heightened competitive environment. It is within and because of this paradigm shift that it becomes imperative for Barbados to differentiate itself from its competition, utilising effective marketing tools to promote a consistent and identifiable brand. Consistency will be achieved through coordinated and structured strategies that apply across all geographic locations.
