News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – Bermuda Tourism Summit panellist Evita Robinson, founder of Nomadness Travel Tribe, will host Audacity Festival’s “Digi 2020”—a day-long showcase of workshops, discussions and networking sessions this Saturday, October 24. Robinson was on stage at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club last week, along with two other panellists and moderator Glenn Jones, Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA) Interim CEO, for a lively summit conversation on engaging Black travellers.
The BTA’s Jones is returning the favour at Digi 2020, appearing on a similar panel that Robinson will moderate. The dialogue will touch on Bermuda’s pandemic safety record, our open and welcoming borders—and our progress on connecting with Black travellers. Robinson has become a social-media sensation in Bermuda since recording a video to her substantial following, telling audiences she was “ridiculously impressed by” Bermuda’s safe travel protocols.
Bermuda tourism stakeholders interested in the subject of Black travel are encouraged to attend Audacity Festival’s “Digi 2020.”
Nomadness is an online social community that advocates particularly for travellers of colour; Robinson focuses her brand on flipping the narrative and breaking stereotypes. Established in 2011, it was one of the first platforms to help ignite the “Black travel movement” and today counts more than 25,000 members all over the world.
Robinson’s voice was a powerful one at this year’s Bermuda Tourism Summit, as she joined Bermudian Kristin White and digital strategist Corey Johnson of New York’s ACE Content—all of whom provided important insights on the island’s National Tourism Plan ambitions around Black travel. The goal is to double the number of Black leisure air visitors by 2025—from four to eight percent. That objective, and ways to achieve it, will also be part of this weekend’s discussion.
