BTB's 2nd Craft Expo

On Saturday, The Belize Tourism Board is hosting their second Annual Village Arts & Craft Expo. Itís important for 2 reasons, the first being that the venue, the newly renovated Memorial Park, will be officially inaugurated.

Today, the representative from BTB explained the second - and more important reason, being that they want to highlight Belizeís handicraft artisans to the hoteliers and gift shop owners:

Clive Myers - Representative, BTB
"Saturday the 31st, at 9:00am the Belize Tourism Board will be having its second annual Village Arts and Craft expo. It will be taking place at the newly renovated Memorial Park which I must say also that on Saturday we'll be having the official inauguration of the park itself. The objective of the Village Arts and Craft Expo is to set a platform for local artisans to get an opportunity to showcase their handicraft products to our local Belizeans and also inviting hoteliers and gift shop owners to see the wide array of craft that they can find in our country and to give these people a business opportunity. Last year we had 80 participants, ranging from the farthest villages up north to down south - this year we're up to 140 plus participants coming out of the villages from Aguacate, Blue Creek, Paraiso, Xaibe, San Felipe, San Antonio, San Pedro Colombia. We have representations from over 50 villages throughout the entire country. This year we definitely saw an increase in participation and we expect the expo to be bigger and better than last year."

The expo starts on 8 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m.
