Website opens polls for local awards

| 08/01/2009

(CNS): Voting has opened for the 3rd Annual Best of Cayman Awards, and the polls will be open through until the end of January for people to vote for their favourite things in the Cayman Islands. Each year the website offers accolades to local businesses in the tourism sector. The website was started in 2004, allowing tourists to plan their vacations before arriving on island.

The site has been evolving and account executive, James Gale said visitors to the site will notice several new features, including free local classifieds, an event calendar, and new video listings. “The video listings are extremely popular, and allow new visitors to get a “virtual tour” of your business and the best things you have to offer,” he added.

The firm said it wil also be launching its sister website, BestoftheCaribbean.com to serve the islands throughout the Caribbean.

“This year we will launch Best of the Caribbean to help tourists and locals decide where to go and what to do when they arrive on one of the islands. Businesses featured on the sites include hotels, rental cars, restaurants, shopping, spas, local activities and more,” says founder, Carrie Layne.

The parent company, Best of Travel, LLC based in Dallas, Texas also has very aggressive plans to launch similar community websites, including the most recently launched BestofTexas.com, and soon to come Best of Florida. More website networks are planned to launch throughout the US, Canada, and even Europe.

BestofTexas.com recently partnered with the Cayman Islands DOT, The Wharf Restaurant, and Sunshine Suites to give away a trip for two to the Cayman Islands. “We feel that this promotional campaign in Texas will help increase tourism and awareness in the Cayman Islands,” says Carrie Layne.
