Initiative Will Jump Start Meetings at Upcoming Oshkosh Aviation Conference

Sun ‘n Fun International, Florida’s largest conference holder, which began a new tourism marketing partnership with The Bahamas on June 19, 2018, has commenced promoting general aviation and fly outs to The Islands Of The Bahamas ahead of its October 1 marketing launch.  Starting today, Sun ‘n Fun has added The Islands Of The Bahamas general aviation guidelines, benefits and diverse product offerings for private pilots desirous of flying into The Bahamas to its website www.flysnf.org/bahamas.  Also included on the website is the schedule for The Bahamas’ upcoming aviation seminars at the 2018 EAA AirVenture OshkoshConference, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, July 22-30, 2018.

The EAA AirVenture OshkoshConference is the largest aviation conference in the world and attracts more than 500,000 pilots, federal government agents, media professionals and flying enthusiasts from around the world.

Sun ‘n Fun International is the world’s second largest aviation conference and the largest conference in Florida, which is The Bahamas’ largest feeder market for aviation.

According to Captain Greg Rolle, Sr. Director of Sports Tourism and Aviation at the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism & Aviation (BMOTA) – “The Bahamas stands to benefit substantially from the early roll out initiative by Sun ‘n Fun.   Sun ‘n Fun has an impressive database, network and reach of aviation enthusiasts, who have been given information on the ease of flying to The Bahamas, its aviation program, and who, now have an opportunity to begin planning and booking their next Bahamas flight as well as meet with us at the upcoming Oshkosh conference, later this month.” 

Captain Rolle noted that the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism looks forward to this new opportunity as well as the other joint initiatives ahead with Sun ‘n Fun, and anticipates a very busy and successful conference at the 2018 EAA AirVenture Oshkosh Conference.
