NEVIS (Dec 1, 2010) — As rain poured from the evening sky, so did applause pour from the nominees and supporters who assembled at the Golden Rock Hotel on Nov. 22 for the first ever Hotel and Tourism Association [HTA] awards ceremony and cocktail party.
The entire event appeared to be stone-centered; from the stone buildings that make up the historic venue to the stone-sculpted, three-faced trophies that depicted the faces of tourism.
The three faces of tourism as explained by HTA Director Mr. Greg Phillip, are the significant aspects of Nevis’ tourism sector. They are the community, the tourists and the workers.
In his overview of the awards ceremony and cocktail party, Director Phillip said the initiative was meant to reward “deserving individuals and businesses on Nevis for their work in the tourism industry.”
Nevis’ Premier and Minister of Tourism, the Honourable Joseph Parry provided remarks at the event and later distributed the awards to the winners.
