Kimberly Stirdivant Wason, Head of PR & Marketing at Virtual Tourist, informed that “The winner will be featured in a national broadcast TV segment on a popular syndicated program, as well as receive a massive media relations campaign push from VirtualTourist.”
According to the BTB, Belize stands to gain an audience of over 2.6 million viewers—a win that would give the country major publicity—by being featured in this international contest being undertaken through Trip Advisor’s partner site, ‘Virtual Tourist’, in collaboration with the American Television Show, Extra.
“Belize has long been an escape for the free-spirited traveler seeking phenomenal wonders in an alluring and authentic setting,” the BTB notes.
