BETEX Opening Night is Belize’s tourism event of the year
The BETEX Opening Night is Belize’s tourism event of the year. BETEX registered delegates, members of the local and international press, and special invited guests will enjoy an evening filled with cultural food displays, live performances and lots of entertainment. Belize’s key tourism stakeholders that are BETEX registered Exhibitors will welcome and mingle with international wholesalers and travel agents for a vibrant evening of networking, fun and dance.
The BETEX 2012 Welcome Reception and Opening Ceremony is sponsored by the Belize Tourism Board and will be held on April 25, from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at The House of Culture in Belize City. The night’s Maya 2012 theme will honor Belize’s Maya heritage and celebrate the Maya civilization that flourished in Belize and the region from around 1800 BC to 1600 AD.
Traditional Marimba music will be featured, along with other Mayan cultural performances, with an ambiance to complement the Maya-inspired dinner menu. Since 2012 is the “Year of the Maya”, travelers are excited about the many activities this year, particularly the Winter Solstice event in December. Even though BETEX will highlight the diversity of Belizean cultures, it has dedicated an entire Post Tour focused on Maya 2012 for enthusiasts.
Guests will be received by the Minister of Tourism, Hon. Manuel Heredia Jr, the team at the Belize Tourism Board, as well as the Belize Tourism Industry Association President, Mr. Jim Scott, the BTIA Board of Directors and the BTIA-BETEX Committee.
