Memphis, TN (August 8, 2012) – Bahamas Minister of Tourism, The Honourable Obie Wilchcombe, has put into action his plan to pursue the African American and Religious Group Markets. The Minister recently visited Memphis, TN, where he attended the 51st Annual Session of the Progressive National Baptist Convention.

Minister Wilchcombe, over the past few months, has made clear his plans to pursue a number of niche markets that he has determined are lucrative and can boost the nation’s tourism figures. His attendance at the Memphis Session of the affluent PNBC - with its multi million membership - presented an opportunity to reach out to both of his favored markets.

In his strategic and focused efforts against the groups market, the Minister has successfully engaged in meetings and talks that have resulted in a number of groups confirming visits to The Bahamas within the next few years. The Minister’s successes to date include the imminent group movement of popular televangelist Joel Osteen.
