GB Shipyard Takes The Bahamas to the World

Grand Bahama Shipyard (GBS) helped Cruise Shipping Miami celebrate the 30th anniversary of their cruise ship convention by hosting a Bahamian-style reception for participating clients.

Cruise Shipping Miami is an international exhibition, and the cruise industry’s premier global event, held annually in Miami, Florida at the Miami Beach Convention Centre, and attracts anywhere from 900 to 1,200 exhibitors and over 10,000 attendees.

This year marked 30 years of bringing the world together from the cruise sector to showcase their products, which range from ship repair and ship ports to cleaning products, food and beverage as well as linens and souvenirs.

Grand Bahama Shipyard Limited used this opportunity to exhibit the company and keep their name in the forefront of the industry while reminding them that they are the premier cruise ship repair company in this region, if not worldwide.

During the exhibition, the company brought The Bahamas to the world in other forms than just showcasing their ship repair facilities.

In 2012, Grand Bahama Shipyard began hosting a reception for their owners and clients at the convention. The reception continues today and is a highlight as it brings a taste of Bahamian culture.

This year’s menu for the reception included Bahamian conch chowder, guava cake and truly Bahamian beer – Sands and High Rock, as well as a cultural junkanoo show.

“Since the first reception, everyone has looked forward to our Bahamian treats,” said GBS Marketing Assistant, Paulette Russell, “We often hear guests’ glowing reviews of the Bahamian beer, the fantastic conch and the performances done by the junkanoo group.”

The junkanoo group which performed at the reception hails from Bahamian society of Miami. Guests at the reception complimented and applauded the junkanoo group for their performance.
