Global fitness competition coming to The Bahamas
For four days in August, August 7-10, a total of 300 contestants from the United States, Canada, Australia, Europe, Africa and Southeast Asia will converge at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar Convention Centre, for the WBFF (World Beauty Fitness & Fashion Inc.) Worlds Bahamas, which will be the culmination of a series of national and regional competitions held around the world within the past several months. WBFF World Bahamas is set to be the super bowl of fitness.
WBFF Worlds Bahamas 2019 is brought to this country through a strategic partnership between the Ministry of Tourism and Aviation and the WBFF. The WBFF is an elite organization based in Canada that stages pageants around the world that showcase fitness, beauty and fashion.
At WBFF Worlds Bahamas 2019, fitness competition meets glamour, beauty and fashion. From this spectacular fitness runway pageant featuring a male and female category, two winners will emerge – the Miss WBFF Worlds Bahamas and the WBFF Worlds Bahamas Champion.
The first three days of the event, August 7, 8 and 9, will involve closed activities for contestants and media. On Saturday August 10, there will be a featured event, open to the public – the red carpet gala fitness runway extravaganza.
“The Ministry of Tourism is very excited about this collaboration between our organization and the WBFF. This partnership will bring the WBFF signature event to our destination over two consecutive years, in 2019 and again in 2020.This partnership is mutually rewarding for both parties. The WBFF relishes the opportunity to bring its culminating pageant to a dream vacation destination, the islands of The Bahamas,” said Minister of Tourism Dionisio D’Aguilar.
This partnership is mutually rewarding for both parties, said D’Aguilar. The WBFF released a statement stating that it relishes the opportunity to bring its culminating pageant to a dream vacation destination, the islands of The Bahamas.
The events of the WBFF are closely followed by millions on the social media platforms of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The social media exposure that The Bahamas will garner through hosting this event ties into the major plank of our marketing strategy which is to build brand awareness and heighten the visibility of our destination in our source markets of the United States, Canada and Europe, said D’Aguilar.
There will be over 300 contestants, who will each be accompanied by three to four persons, in addition to judges, producers and organizers, all coming to The Bahamas. There is expected to be a significant injection of revenue into The Bahamas’ economy from this event, benefitting transportation providers, restaurants, retail stores and numerous tourism sector operators.
As a result of this fruitful collaboration between the Ministry of Tourism and the WBFF, the excitement of Summer 2019 in Nassau is expected to increase significantly.
WBFF Worlds Bahamas 2019 is expected to be a show-stopping, gala runway pageant featuring fitness, beauty and fashion. Tickets will be available online at the WBFF’s website, www.wbffshows.com, and also locally. Ticket sales locations will be announced shortly.
